Megan’s Comments:

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.

Side note:

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!

Other Notes:

  • You can flavor these any way you like! Get creative with the spices!
  • You can use any kind of cooking oil you would like: Butter/ghee, coconut oil, olive oil.
  • You can use green or purple cabbage

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.
