While cohosting BBC's Radio 1 on Friday, April 7, Styles declared kale out, and Brussels sprouts in. Leave it to the boy-bander to flip the veggie-sphere upside down.

This Is How He Cooks Them
After Styles revealed his love for Brussels sprouts, Nick Grimshaw, host of The Radio 1 Breakfast Show, dug for details on air. Grimshaw proceeded to ask the singer how he likes to cook them.

Yes, kale will forever hold a spot inside my stomach. However, there are many health benefits to eating Brussels sprouts. These bad boys can lower cholesterol, improve bone health and even fight cancer. Not to mention, there are endless recipes and methods you can use to prepare your sprouts.
