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.

Raw shredded cabbage makes a great base for a light ‘slaw—just mix it with carrots, onion, light mayo, vinegar, mustard, celery seed, salt, and black pepper. Pair this dish with any kind of sandwich, or dress it up with Asian-inspired additions. You can mix in uncooked ramen noodles, slivered almonds—a good source of heart-healthy LDL cholesterol—and sliced Mandarin oranges, which are rich in vitamin-C, then toss with a dressing of your choice.
