I found these little lovelies at the farmer?s market. I?ve always heard that they?re not a bitter after the first frost, which is still a while a few weeks off here in Ohio. They were tiny and looked like they?d pair perfectly with some bacon I had in the fridge, so I snapped up 2 pints of them. I steamed them for a few minutes, then sauteed them with some diced bacon, along with a few shallots and some garlic. They were fantastic! I have to admit, I wasn?t a brussels sprouts fan a few years ago, I didn?t like them at all. I think the problem was that I had never had fresh brussels sprouts. Like many vegetables they?re much better fresh from the garden! What?s your favorite way to enjoy brussels sprouts, or is it not at all? check out my blog: www.chiotsrun.com

While there are some general rules of thumb when it comes to healthy eating -- fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains -- there's still some wiggle room for personal interpretation of what makes up a nutritious diet. For some, a Paleo plan might work. Others might opt to go vegan. And some of us even make room for the occasional slice of pizza or cheeseburger. (Cheers to that!)

To get a better sense of what you really think of as healthy food, we asked our Facebook fans to tell us how they would describe nutritious picks in just one word. The most common answers in the graphic below show -- for the most part, at least -- this is a clean-eating bunch.
