Red (purple) or white (pale green), cabbage is a delicious, crunchy leafy green when prepared right. You can wilt it in a pan, make cabbage rolls with it, and if you want to get fancy even make some sauerkraut! That’s for another post, in this one we’ll be making a checkered cabbage salad!
Some may wonder, how does cabbage help your body?
Well other than the obvious that it is a leafy green vegetable, it is also full of vitamin K and anthocyanins that help with mental function and concentration. These nutrients are what also prevent nerve damage, improving your defense against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Red cabbage has the highest amount of these powerful nutrients.
CABBAGE helps dry up oily and acne skin as a cherry on top of it all. Cabbage is powerful. Some ancient healers even declared that it contained moon power because it grew in the moonlight. This power solely comes from its high sulfur and vitamin C content. Either way, its a powerfood worth adding to your diet.
