Have 3-5 grams of fiber per cup, and at 25 calories per 1/2 cup cooked, they give us a reason to eat them more often. Brussels sprouts are one of those foods that will fill you up, without filling you out. For vegetarians you can make a grain along side these because they have a good amount of protein. This also works great when you stir fry them!
