Paleo Bacon, Brussel Sprouts, Collard Greens

Ok, this is simple and delicious and a fantastic way to eat more veggies! Instead of writing this dish’s horrifically long name every time, it shall henceforth be called the BBC! I’m actually eating a bowl of the BBC with 2 fried eggs as I write this.

This dish is so easy, I didn’t bother taking any photos until the end! In fact, I’m sure there are many similar (if not identical) dishes out there.

This looks delicious! I am always looking for recipes to get in more greens. I love the combination of bacon and brussels sprouts already, so this looks like a winner. Thanks!
