Happy Friday Everyone!
You may have noticed that this week lettuce was not included on the menu for the first time in GGO history. We thought we’d take a break and add cabbage as a hearty substitute. The great thing about cabbage is that it makes for a delicious healthy salad, or can be cooked into a sweet and savory side dish. Regardless of how you use it, cabbage is a great choice for any meal!
It is one of the richest when it comes to protective vitamins. It is a good supplier of vitamins A, B, C and E, potassium and fiber. Cabbage has also been found to lower the risk of cancer of the colon. Cabbage kills bacteria and viruses in the lab and boosts the immune system to produce more antibodies. All-in-all, it’s a pretty rockin’ veggie!
In other news: Halloween is days away and we wanted to take this opportunity to share delicious, healthy organic sweet substitutes for candy’s favorite holiday. Some tips and tricks include Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Organic Root Beer Barrels, and Baby Carrots. For a full list of yummy organic Halloween treats, click here.
