Eat Cabbage…Bye-Bye Hunger!

I’ve made an interesting discovery this week. Three evenings in a row I’ve made a cabbage skillet dish for dinner like my grandmother used to make. That happened because I purchased this HUGE head of organic cabbage and I didn’t want it to go to waste. I sautéed onion and cabbage and  added grass-fed uncured beef franks plus apple cider vinegar. After eating just one serving of this dish each night, I was not hungry for anything else. I felt completely satisfied. I lost a half pound each day. (BTW—I’ve lost 9 pounds since I started on my Sipping Skinny diet.) If you make this dish your low carb meal a couple times a week on my Sipping Skinny program, you should lose about 2-3 pounds a week.

Cabbage is very low-cal. It turns out that a couple of cups of cooked cabbage contain about 65 calories. It’s also very filling. This is such a low calorie, low carb dish, you could eat several servings and still lose weight. You burn off the cabbage just digesting it! (See the recipe below.)

And this is just the start. There are many health benefits of cabbage that include constipation relief, stomach ulcer healing (especially with raw cabbage juice),along with relief for headaches, obesity, skin disorders, cancer, eczema, jaundice, scurvy, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, eye disorders, heart diseases, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Cabbage offers great nutrition that includes:

  • Manganese
  • Fiber
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium

  • Vitamins C, B6, A, K, and E.
  • And flavonoids that include zeaxanthin, lutein, choline, and beta-carotene
  • Glutamine
