Cabbage is a cheap source of nutrition

Filed under:

Are you a cabbage fan? In winter, I sure am. The leafy greens are excellent when slow-cooked (or raw, if that is your thing), and when you add a lot of pepper and even some Italian spice, the result can be quite tasty.

The amount of vitamins and other good-for-health minerals in cabbage make it one of the cheapest food sources I've seen. An entire head of cabbage is generally lower than that junk-food cheeseburger, and offers nutrition that's head and shoulders above most other non-fresh foods.

Some even call cabbage the "tumor's enemy" in relation to its cancer-fighting properties. Personally, I prefer fresh blueberries, but cabbage is a great alternative as well. It may be hard to stomach raw for many of us, but when blended into a smoothie, it's easily palatable.
