I love when you can make a side for dinner that takes very little effort, and everyone loves. I recently tried this roasted cabbage and it turned out perfect! I was actually surprised how much everyone loved the taste and texture of these. Between this and kale chips, you will be set for fast and delicious sides.
Cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, kale, cabbage, bok choy and collard greens, have a compound called indole-3-carbinol which helps your liver detox harmful toxins and estrogen. For balanced hormones and to get rid of PMS, eat cruciferous veggies daily!

Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a great snack that is surprisingly very good! It is crunchy, juicy and savory all at the same time. If you crave a salty, crunchy snack try these as they are naturally low-carb and rich in powerful nutrients.
I prefer using red cabbage over green cabbage as the red contains significantly higher phytonutrient anti-oxidants. In particular, it is the anthocyanin anti-oxidants that have formed in the red cabbage that protect them from intense UV light. This UV light anti-oxidant protection crosses over to protect us from oxidative stress in a number of ways.
Cabbage is also rich in L-glutamine, a healing nutrient for the gut and muscle tissue. It is full of isothiocyanates which are powerful cancer fighting nutrients and lutein and zeaxanthin which are carotenoid anti-oxidants that protect our skin, brain and eyes from the damaging effects of oxidative stress.
