It is easy to say eat lean and really difficult not to starve yourself. When I say this, trust me it not easy to eat healthy without t a good amount of thought. Through much of the reading that I do about cabbage is one of the healthiest vegetables when you want to eat lean. The easiest way to get a lean dinner on your plate is to get a slice of roasted cabbage, so you are having a good portion of low carb option and still having a great good meal with a smile. Sound good?
Here are some facts about the cabbage that may make you look at it in a different light
- With about 33 calories per cup of shredded cabbage is a great deal of good fibre and nutrients with a low level of carbs. So ideally should be loved by diabetics and all low carb diet aspirers
- Vit k needed for proper blood clotting is best sourced from cabbage and other leafy vegetables
- Cabbage is useful in preventing osteoporosis as it has good amounts of potassium. Further, vitamin K helps in bone health as well.
- The antioxidants and anthocyanin (red and purple varieties) content of cabbage is very useful in cholesterol management
- The role of Sinigrin in cancer prevention is widely discussed in the research world and cabbage is one of the best sources.
To serve the cabbage steak
It is often a question of what can we serve with it. I would suggest a small amount of sauce
Top it with grilled cheese like halloumi or paneer or with a nut mince and you have a perfect dinner.
Here are a couple of lower carb options
If you like the cruciferous vegetables try this too
Try this too for a filling low carb option
