Cabbage is a very underrated vegetable.
In terms of price per cup, a report by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) has shown cabbage to be the second most economical cooked vegetable in terms of price per edible cup. Yes!
Grab you some.
Many people don’t know what a powerhouse cabbage really is. I’ve been eating it on the regular for the past several years… in soups, roasted, and quick stir-fried like this.
Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that increases the production of antioxidant and detoxification enzymes, and stimulates the production of liver cleansing; it actually helps your liver break down toxins so they can be more easily expelled, and it also has diuretic properties that help rid your body of excess liquid, carrying toxins along with it.
These egg roll bowls are EXCELLENT for meal prep. Divide your servings equally and store in sealed containers in the fridge for 3-4 days. They reheat wonderfully in the microwave or tossed in a skillet for a few minutes. Grab n’ Go “fast food” for lunches at work!
