So how about you? Did you grow up eating cabbage dishes? Do you feed your family cabbage dishes? Lucky for me, I come from a Ukrainian and Polish background. We ate fried cabbage and cabbage rolls, as well as my mom, made the best tomato, bean, and cabbage soup. She even made homemade sauerkraut and the best coleslaw around so cabbage was no stranger to our family!
There are three common types of cabbages that you see all the time in the grocery store. They are the smooth Green cabbage, the Red cabbage and the wrinkly one called Savoy cabbage. If you are not already including cabbage in your families, diet you may want to consider just how good this food is for you. Cabbage is a cholesterol-lowering food, especially if steamed. There is hi fibre in cabbage and it has nutritional properties that are helpful in the preventioning of certain cancers. Cabbage is high in vitamin K, C, and B6 among many other vitamins and minerals. One of the healthiest most digestible and beneficial ways of eating cabbage is to saute it. There are several easy methods of preparing cabbage.
You will find quite a difference in the flavors of the three cabbages we mentioned.

Shredding a little raw red cabbage in your daily salad is a great practice to get into. It not only makes your dish colorful, you get all the goodness it has to offer. In our family, we consider cabbage a 'winter' vegetable. What I mean by this is if you eat salad every day as we do, cabbages taste great in the winter months when tomatoes and cucumbers have no flavor at all. The price of cabbage does not soar in the winter like the other salad greens that are out of season.So armed with all these great reasons why you should eat cabbage, let us visit the 'Aunt Bee's' website below and learn how to make her Southern Fried Cabbage!
