Detox Salad With Cabbage and Apples

Make This: Cabbage Salad With Apples and Caraway Seeds

Cabbage is one of those healthy foods that people tend to avoid, but it really is a great alternative to lettuce and so good for you. My favorite type is Napa cabbage, which tastes slightly sweeter than other cabbages. Not only does it have a wonderful crunch, but it also has some seriously healthy attributes.

Cabbage is great for detoxifying your liver and studies have shown that it can help prevent prostate, colon, and lung cancers. This is probably due to the fact that it is loaded with phytonutrients, which work to clear free radicals and toxins, including potential carcinogens from our systems. Not only that, but it is high in vitamin C as well as vitamin K, not to mention fiber. I like to whip up a Napa cabbage is in a simple salad, to pair with hearty, Winter dinners because the salad is so light and crisp. Check out the recipe.

Napa Cabbage Salad With Apples and Caraway Seeds

Anon, that is a good idea! It's so sweet I bet you can't taste it. I also like to throw cabbage, especially purple, into stir fries. Yummy!

that looks soooo good. I remember when I wanted to make a sandwich in a hurry, so I took some mayo, tofu, tomatoe and what I thought was lettuce. I put it all together on some wheat bread and took it for lunch. I took a bite and thought OMG THIS IS NOT LETTUCE! it was soo funny..but yummy ^^

I seriously LOVE napa cabbage. It's much milder tasting than a lot of other leafy greens, but has more flavor than boring ol' lettuce. That recipe sounds really tasty, and it's also good as a base for a chinese chicken salad. Yum!
