Best Foods That We Need To Eat

This cabbage is one of the 10 best foods that we need to eat, for me , I like it very much. Make a cabage soup with carrots or stir fry it is very nice.
Absent from most American kitchens, this cruciferous vegetable is a major player in European and Asian diets.
Why it's healthy :
One cup of chopped cabbage has just 22 calories, and it's loaded with valuable nutrients.. At the top of the list is sulforaphane, a chemical that increases your body's production of enzymes that disarm cell-damaging free radicals and reduce your risk of cancer. In fact, Stanford University scientists determined that sulforaphane boosts your levels of these cancer-fighting enzymes higher than any other plant chemical.
How to eat it :
Put cabbage on your burgers to add a satisfying crunch. Or, for an even better sandwich topping or side salad, try an Asian-style slaw.
