Energizing Lemon Herb and Cranberry Cabbage Steak Salad
Energizing Lemon Herb and Cranberry Cabbage Steak Salad – Coming in hot with an ultra high vibe and energy-boosting cabbage steak covered in a zesty lemon herb dressing and covered by a flavorful tart garnish of anti-oxidant-rich tart cranberries to taste! Cabbage is a powerhouse superfood full of nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for brain development and nerve cell health. According to a study by the University of Rochester Medical Center, “cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli may help reduce the levels of the bad tau proteins that accumulate in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients”. Cabbage provides vitamins B6, C, K, and B1, which are essential for a healthy body, so I recommend all people seeking new ways to eat healthy to enjoy this creation for more nutrients and vitamins.
Healthy Tip: Just one cup of raw, chopped cabbage provides 34% of the USDA’s recommended daily intake of vitamin C for adult women and nearly 29% of the recommended daily intake for men.
