Cabbage Is The New (Old) Superfood

January 13, 2014 2 min read

Cabbage may not be at the top of your list when you think of your go-to vegetables, but maybe it should be. It's a traditional food for may northern European and Asian societies. Traditional cabbage recipes include sauerkraut, kimchi, stuffed cabbage, pickled cabbage, and corned beef and cabbage. Not only is cabbage delicious and low calorie, it also has some great health benefits. Cabbage has high levels of:
  • Folate
  • Vitamin K
  • Vitamin C
Cabbage is a bit of a super superfood. One cup has 65% of your daily recommended vitamin K intake and 42% of your daily recommended vitamin C. That's a whole lot of vitamins for just 6 calories per cup! One orange has 116% of your daily vitamin C, bit also has 45 calories. You can get the same amount of vitamin C with just 18 calories of cabbage. It's common knowledge that vitamin C gives you an immune boost and helps keep you from getting sick, while vitamin K will give your bones a boost and help prevent osteoporosis. Folate can reduce the risk of stroke and is essential for pregnant women or women wanting to get pregnant. Cabbage has long been recommended for it antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well as its potential to help prevent cancer. To keep the beneficial nutrients in tact, it is recommended to eat cabbage raw or steamed. My favorite way to eat cabbage is in coleslaw.

  • 2 bags cabbage mix
