According to Greek myth, the first crucifers (cabbage family of vegetables) sprang from beads of sweat on the brow of the Greek God Zeus!
Cabbage is the world’s most popular vegetable but sadly in America and Canada it's not showing up on many of our kitchen tables. And this is despite being one the most nutritious, cancer fighting, immune system boosting vegetables out there.
Cabbage, when in season, is a true superfood that contains:
More anticancer properties than any other vegetable family
A variety of powerful antioxidants (especially purple cabbage)
A very high source of immune-boosting Vitamin C
Perhaps integrating cabbage into our diets requires a little creativity and simplicity. To get you started below is a recipe that combines purple and green cabbage, carrots and a nutritious vinaigrette made with extra virgin olive oil.
