You guys totally rock! Your advice to HGK reader-in-need in my last post just totally blew my mind.
Today I want to talk about something less serious, or not: cabbage.
Cabbage is ridiculously good for you. Dr. Fuhrman writes in Super Immunity, “Cruciferous vegetables are not only the most powerful anticancer foods in existence; they are also the most micronutrient-dense of all vegetables.”
We get the maximum benefit from eating cruciferous vegetables raw. But that’s not always palatable to some people. Raw broccoli, raw Brussels Sprouts, raw kohlrabi? But cabbage, most of us are used to eating that raw in a slaw. Phew!
1/2 cup water
- steamed tempeh (2 8-ounce packages cut into large strips and steamed for 5 minutes) that I mashed and then mixed with green enchilada sauce (1 15-ounce can)
- a homemade roasted vegetable spread with Mexican seasoning (optional)
- Mexican Slaw (above)
- whole wheat lavash (the wraps)
