Quick, easy, nutritious cabbage salad.
Sometimes I think I’m really clever, now is one of those times.
I snagged a handful of recipes from last month’s Cooking Light magazine, and this is their Napa Cabbage Slaw.
Since I was at the store and saw nothing labeled Napa Cabbage, I grabbed the logical next best choice…the pretty red one.
In 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, Johnny Bowden says this of cabbage:
“…the cabbage family is probably the most important vegetable in the world from the point of view of nutritional benefits and cancer-fighting ability.”
Cabbage is good for:
- Phytochemicals called indoles, which are shown to alter estrogen in a favorable way likely to reduce the risk of cancer.
- Free-radical fighting phytochemicals called dithiolethiones, which may reduce the risk of prostate cancer.
- Vitamin C (85% RDI for 1 cup!)
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin K
