Cabbage, a mildly sweet flavored vegetable with many health benefits. You can find green or red cabbage at your local grocery store, normally sold by the pound. You can also find it bagged pre-shredded. It has health-promoting sulfur compounds and red cabbage contains an extra boost of phytonutrients. All varieties of cabbage are a low calorie, high fiber and vitamin packed, making it a great choice when it comes to weight loss.
I’m always looking for simple recipes that I can whip together quickly. This salad is just that! I’ve been meal planning for a long time blind to portion sizes, especially when it comes to vegetables. I was always under the impression that more was better. When beginning the Beachbody meal plan, I was finally able to put into perspective what a serving of vegetables looks like making it easy to make single or double serving portions.
Most of the time when I make this salad I make it single serving in a glass lock container to take with me to work. You can easily double, triple or quadruple this recipe to make it accommodate more people or to just have a container of it in the fridge. I know my boyfriend loves having cold salads in the fridge and because the cabbage isn’t cooked the dressing doesn’t make it soggy so it’s a great go-to recipe for that.
