As we almost reach October, the month of breast cancer awareness, let’s learn a few new healthy facts. This week, we start with the EVER SO EXCITING….cabbage!
A member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family is CABBAGE! Cabbage is not only rich in antioxidants, but also a good source of vitamin c and manganese. These traits are similar to cauliflower. After all, they do say that cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college degree!
Red cabbage has a much higher concentration of protective polyphenols. According to Dr. Greger, from NutritionFacts.org, RED CABBAGE contains the most nutrient density per penny spent!
Get creative with your cabbage by trying a healthy version of a Chinese chicken cabbage salad, sautéed bok choy, or roasted cabbage slices.
