Cabbage is known for its cancer fighting antioxidants such as indole-3 carbinol, but it also packs quite the fiber punch. 1 cup of cabbage contains only 5 grams of carbohydrates, half of which come from fiber. If buying a head of cabbage to cook and prepare seems a little intimidating, just opt for the pre-shredded bags of coleslaw or broccoli slaw mix. The pre-shredded bags are ready to eat and come mixed with other super foods such as broccoli, carrots, and other cabbage variations (like red cabbage).
