Cabbage and your health

Cabbage is rich in calcium, potassium and vitamins C and K. You can eat as much as you want without the fear of putting too much weight on, as cabbage is very low in calories. Research has proven that steamed cabbage is better for you than raw or boiled cabbage – it contains more antioxidants. Cabbage also contains lots of fibre.

Preparing and cooking cabbage

Cabbage can be enjoyed in so many ways! Freshly prepared is so tasty (whichever variety), but you should also try it in soup. Cabbage also lends itself well mixed with other chopped vegetables in a stir fry and you can really enrich a nice salad with freshly chopped and sliced cabbage. It was always assumed that the cabbage family was a winter vegetable but in summer it is hard to beat fresh cauliflower, delicious stir fried broccoli, or how about spring cabbage and boiled mashed potatoes?
There are enough brassica on offer at Bakker.com to suit everyone’s taste.
