Cabbage.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day..... so in honor of the Irish, let's all eat us up some Cabbage.  

When most of us hear the word cabbage we turn up our noses..... or think of dishes combining cabbage with mayo-- or other heavily laden oil dishes... like coleslaw. But Cabbage is a very nutritious, nutrient packed veggie. It is an excellent source of vitamin C and Vitamin K. It is also packed with fiber, manganese, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids. Click here to learn everything you need to know about Cabbage.  


One whole cup of cabbage only contains about 15-20 calories.... now you can understand where the Cabbage soup diet idea comes from.
