Low Carb Red Braised Cabbage

Why red cabbage?

I grew up with fried green cabbage. I make it at least 2 times a month. It is cheap and really good for you. But let’s talk the health benefits of red cabbage. It has vitamin c and boosts the immune system. The phytonutrients help fight inflammation. The vitamin K content helps maintain bone calcium. Other health benefits, it protects against cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s, aids in weight loss, helps reduce signs of ageing, and more!!! Alzheimer’s can be hereditary. My grandfather that just passed away had it. At least 2 of his brothers has it and his mother also had it. I am looking at increasing foods that help protect me from a future with Alzheimer’s

This can be used in a trim healthy mama fp, s, or e meal.

If you keep the fat to no more than 1 tsp per person, you can use this as a side in a fuel pull or e meal. This is such a delicious and easy side dish. My hubby can’t get enough of it. When I made this last night, he got in late and was getting up at 2 in the morning. He asked for a small plate. He went back for seconds and got a big plate! This might need to be something I make every month. When I made this last night, I cut the cabbage and onions into smaller pieces than I did in the pictures below. I also used a red onion, trying to up the nutrients in the dish.

That color is so vibrant!

I’m learning about how important getting color in our diets is. I’m trying to make sure I get in a few every week. I have been making sure I use the wild blueberries in every breakfast porridge and my nonfat Greek yogurt. I am trying out beet recipes. I added some to my roasted veggies last week. I generally think they taste like dirt, but I know how good they are for me. Enter the red cabbage (although it isn’t red, it’s purple, or am I colorblind?). I am definitely going to find other ways to get this amazing veggie in my diet. You don’t have to serve this with brats. Grill up some chicken, maybe fish, sausages, or even a side to burgers. I think this will be something that I cook up 2-3 times a month and store in the fridge. Then I can add them to my lunches or even an extra side for dinner. I hope you give this recipe a try!
