Red, White, & Green--Cabbage I Mean!

Oh, the many colors that abound in cabbage. Actually, in many cases the color lies beneath, and is actually hidden. Cabbageis a cruciferous vegetable, which is in the same family as broccoli and kale. Cabbage is packed with nutrients. In one cup of cabbage you get over 90% of the recommended intake of Vitamin K and over 50% from Vitamin C. Indole and sulforaphane are just a couple of examples of the phytochemicals that are found in cabbage. Research continues to explore the cancer-fighting aspects of phytochemicals.

Cabbage tends to get a bad reputation for a gas-producing food. The bacteria in your colon need to be nourished to stay healthy, and keep your digestive tract in good shape. The higher your diet is in fiber, and the more consistent you are at maintaining a high-fiber diet, the more your system will grow used to this; thus, helping you be less gassy. The goal general rule of thumb is to aim for at least 30 grams of fiber per day for a healthy digestive tract. If you are still gassy, consider trying a product like Bean-O to help. You will be in better shape, and so will your gut, if you eat foods that are high in fiber, such as cabbage!
So, what brought on my cabbage kick?? My beautiful head of cabbage that I got in my CSA box this past week. A head of cabbage can yield a lot for a someone eating alone or a small family. Here are some ideas to put your cabbage to good use!

1. Braised cabbage: simply quarter your cabbage and add to a soup pot with 1 1/2cps of chicken broth. Bring to a simmer, cover for 5 minutes, and add 1 Tb. butter right before serving. Season with salt or garlic salt.
2. Shredded, oh the possibilities! My favorite is on fish tacos, but you can also add shredded cabbage to salads, tacos, or stir-fry vegetables.
3. Not just any coleslaw--be creative! There are so many fun recipes to explore that go beyond the boring mayo-based coleslaw. I plan on using half of my cabbage to make an Asian slaw to accompany Asian kebabs!
4. Cabbage soup--beyond the diet! Yes, the infamous cabbage soup diet is still out there, and people still go on it. Cabbage is tasty in soup, so I won't complain!
