{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

An entire post about cabbage?!

Why, yes!

I think cabbage is probably one of the most underutilized vegetables, even in health circles today. Not only is cabbage loaded with benefits including containing anti-cancer compounds, but it is one of my secret weapons to keeping my real food budget in check.

Cabbage is super budget-friendly and since it has a pretty neutral flavor, you really can add it to just about anything from soups to stir frys to wraps. I remember the first time I wanted to use up some “getting too old to use” cabbage in my fridge and I braised it down in a pot of butter to use for a stir fry – that was the beginning of my love for cabbage because it really tasted amazing and added a load of veggies to the plate that we weren’t using otherwise.

I would venture to say most people are not getting enough fiber in their day, especially with many now turning to a lower grain or no grain type of a diet. If veggies aren’t on the plate at every meal, you probably aren’t getting enough. Cabbage is one of those vegetables that are loaded with gut-friendly fiber that will keep your intestines cleaned and cleared out and it is so easy to add to any meal.

I love having kimchi (a spicy fermented cabbage) with my eggs for breakfast. You can have a loaded veggie soup with lots of braised cabbage for lunch, or add some sauerkraut to your favorite wrap. Coleslaw goes so good on top of a burger for dinner or clear out the veggie bin and use some cabbage in a stir fry!

Those ideas are only the tip of the iceberg, my friends! I have gathered some of our favorite blogger recipes for you to try out and give cabbage a try!
