Quick Healthy Salad

Quick Healthy Salad

Needing a salad that is quick and simple to make at the last minute? Well this is my go-to salad for when I am needing a vegetable with my meal but don't have much time.

Cabbage is usually put into the lettuce category, but surprisingly it is part of the cruciferous family. Cruciferous vegetables are known for being full of beneficial nutrients, and cabbage is no different. So if you're trying to improve your diet, adding cruciferous vegetables is a must.

Eating 1/2 cup of shredded cabbage contains only 17 calories, 2 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of protein. So it's a low calorie food for sure!



Benefits of Cabbage
Cabbage is a good source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, potassium, thiamin, vitamin K, manganese, and folate.
