I prefer to shred my cabbage into bite size pieces and the apples give it a nice crunch. The sweetness of the apples bring a new and interesting flavor to an otherwise traditional coleslaw.
Did you know that cabbage is a wonderful vegetable that helps with cell detoxification? It is also known to help with headaches and gastrointestinal concerns.
If one is looking for ingredients for a low-calorie diet, cabbage is at the top of the list. One cup of cabbage only holds about 15 calories.
It also contains manganese, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. Toss in a little purple cabbage and you get some anthocyanins, which are a phytochemical found in blueberries and beets.
Due to its relatively high amount of Vitamin C, cabbage also helps boost the Immune System, as well as assisting in removing toxics from the body, and playing a role in burning fat.
Important tip… Avoid buying precut cabbage, (halved or shredded) since once cabbage is cut, it begins to lose its valuable Vitamin C content.
So with all these wonderful health benefits I urge you to go ahead and dig in! Because after all it is tasty too. :) I hope you enjoy this wonderful salad. Please keep in touch and leave a comment below. Many blessings, amie sue
