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.

Fermented cabbage has a stinky reputation, but the shredded and seasoned side (made by adding lactic acid bacteria) makes a great addition to lots of meals. You can smother ‘kraut on top of a chicken sausage and diced apples—a healthier take on the classic bratwurst—or add it to a lean turkey burger topped with grilled onions and low-fat Swiss cheese. Also try it alongside pork loin, a super-lean cut that pairs perfectly.
