I am assuming that you are asking because these foods were on your SP food plan for the day. You do not have to follow that plan if it does not work for. There are tons of recipes on SparkRecipes and you import those directly into your tracker. You can also do some trial and error. If you are more likely to eat broccoli and a chicken breast than brussell sprouts and lamb plug that in and see how that changes up your stats. Then adjust from there as needed. Planning ahead is very helpful here so you can know walking into the meal that you are on track but also sitting down to a meal you enjoy.

Cooks Thesaurus gives substitutes. A link is http://www.foodsubs.com/
It lists substitutes for lamb as beef, pork, veal, chicken or turkey. Not very helpful as it seems to indicate any meat will work for lamb. Lamb gives you such a distinct flavor that substituting is going to be difficult. We still use lamb, even though it's fatty, but restrict our lamb portion to 3 oz only. Very strict, about 3 oz only. It's about 1 tiny, frenched, lamb rib chop.
Use google to type 'brussel sprouts and nutritional information' and a website will give you the info you want. also find substitutes at the above mentioned website http://www.foodsubs.com/
I don't post much or reply very much but I understand your need for information. More information makes it easier to manage our daily food.
I'm trying to make a concerted effort to be more involved in the message boards so I thought I'd reply here where I'd normally move on. Good luck.
I use the following website to find nutritional info. It has a lot of extra info I don't need but I pick from it what I find useful.
I have questions about food substitutes, can anyone help me?? 1st, brussel sprouts what is their nutrional value and is there a substitute, 2nd hummus what is its nutritional value and is there a substitute, and last need a substitute for lamb, won't eat it. this isn't much of an introduction, but I am 35 have 4 children 2 mine 2 step, going to school online, and run afterschool daycare from home. I am making significant changes in my life, and am setting goals again. My hope and goal is to find a knowledgeable aid in this program, I know I will have questions, and I don't want to get discouraged by a no response to my questions. Please if anyone is willing, there will be more questions if you are up to the challenge please respond. Sincerely Blcms
