Fit Food: The Benefits of Cabbage

It’s time to stop hating on this winter-friendly super food, which is packed with fiber and Vitamin C. Here, five easy cabbage recipes to help you fall in love.

Carb-concious guys, take note: ditch your burger-and-bun combo for a stuffed cabbage leaf. Assemble a filling made from 1 lb. lean ground beef, 1 egg, 1 cup breadcrumbs, and spices like thyme, then wrap a handful-sized serving in each cabbage leaf. Place in a baking dish, cover with crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce, and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour. The result? An iron-rich, protein-packed meal, with lots of leftovers.
