Week 2 done! We still haven’t needed to go shopping, however our vegetable stocks are starting to get low. On the positive side, my kids get less fussy every day, I’m so proud of them.
Whilst our veggie stocks are low, we still have plenty of cabbage! I would recommend that if you stock up on anything, let it be cabbage. I consider eating salad to be a bit risky as you can’t fully wash the leaves. However, cabbage makes a great salad! You don’t need to wash it, simply peel away and discard the outer leaves. With a large cabbage weighing around 900g, you can stretch it to 3 or 4 meals.
In terms of health benefits… they are numerous, with cabbage containing more vitamin C than oranges, along with sulphur-rich compounds such as sulforaphane, which support liver function and detoxication. Cabbage is also rich in fibre and iodine.
This week we have had stir-fried cabbage twice, chickpeas with cabbage, carrot and red cabbage salad, all pictured here. You can find short-form recipes in the meal-plan, and when I have the time I will upload full downloadable recipes to my blog.
