Did you know that cabbage is great for losing weight?
One cup of cooked cabbage contains only 33 calories while supplying you with a wealth of health-promoting nutrients.
Like its other cruciferous cousins, broccoli, kale and mustard greens, cabbage is not only an excellent source of vitamin C and dietary fiber, but also contains many unique sulfur-containing phytonutrients, such as indole-3-carbinole (I3C) and sulforaphane. I3C and sulforaphane help activate and stabilize the body's antioxidant and detoxification mechanisms. Other sulfur compounds, which are produced as a result of cutting, chewing or digesting cabbage, increase the liver's ability to produce enzymes that neutralize potentially toxic substances.
Cabbage is easily available, inexpensive, and easy to prepare.
