A "super" vegetable... eat at least once a week.
Cabbages have high nutrition and vitamin levels. A good anti-aging vegetable with vitamins B1,B6,C,D&K, as well as beta-carotene.
Research shows that it can help with Blood Pressure, Stomach Ulcers, and can lower the risk of some cancers.
Keep cabbage cold - it helps to retain its vitamin content.
Cabbage contains the mineral calcium necessary for normal teeth & bones.
If you cook Cabbage, steam it lightly (5 minutes or less) to retain the phytonutrients & maximise their availability to preserve the health benefits.
To preserve Cabbage's beneficial compounds at maximum levels, experts recommend eating Cabbage raw.
Next time you're cooking Cabbage, add a Celery stalk to the pot as this helps neutralise the powerful odour.
Or simply cook the Cabbage quicker, stir-frying it in a Wok rather than boiling it for a long time.
Try olive oil & lemon juice on coleslaw instead of mayonnaise
To give cabbage a lift, try coriander, curry spices, nutmeg, ginger & allspice, along with herbs such as mint, dill, fennel, parsley, thyme, celery seed, garlic & chives.
