Playing Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad With Secret Health Benefits

According to celebrity nutritionist and Nutritious Life founder Keri Glassman, some foods that feel like indulgences actually have health benefits. Pecorino cheese is one of them. She loves to eat it on top of salads, including this version with shaved Brussels sprouts, toasted almonds and lemon dressing. It's super-tasty, quick and easy to make and holds nicely in the fridge.
