Packing a higher nutritional punch than green cabbage, Red’s got antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits. It’s low in calories, high in fiber and is chock full of vitamins. Making this veg one of my top weight loss foods!

One cup of raw, chopped red cabbage provides 19% of your Vitamin A, 85% Vitamin C and over half your daily needs for Vitamin K.

Vitamin A enhances immunity, aids in growth and development ( more muscle = higher metabolism!) and promotes healthy eyesight. Vitamin C& K are essential for healthy immune system, building and maintaining strong bones.
