Purple Cabbage - My Thursday Favourites #16 Contest Entry

in esteem •  5 months ago  (edited)

My favorite vegetable is purple cabbage and I eat it daily when I can. I love the color and taste and price and health benefits and have no downside whatsoever!

Here is a bit of purple cabbage in some salad rolls I made (pre-rolling shot) and they were fantastic!

I'm always going to cut my cabbage finely and eat it raw or cooked.

But I first add some lemon or vinegar which is supposed to increase the health benefits. I do not know if it does, but now I like the taste of it that way, so I do it. The color releases nicely and I am sure to get all the juice!

This is the cost in Malaysia for a half a head. This is about 60 cents usd and will last me close to a week. This head was already more than halfway gone when I took the photo.

Sort of an action shot of the lime juice trick.

I like any cabbage, but purple is my favorite for a bit of a stronger taste and the benefits of being a purple food according to anti-aging-for-all.com.

I do not eat eggplant but all the rest of those fruits and veggies are on my list. I have never seen purple cauliflower, but I would get it if I saw it at a good price.

Here are the health benefits of purple cabbage according to my favorite healthy food site.

And more info from the same place. I'm glad they tracked the purple cabbage, but they mis-guidedly call it red!!!

Part of my healthy lifestyle is to try my best to eat the 31 essential nutrients each day, while avoiding toxins in my food. Purple cabbage is a big help in this effort.

Heya @fitinfunfood! Thank you for joining the contest! May I ask your help to put in comment, the link to your post at the contest post, just so that I can keep track of the entries that come in and give you an Entry number? Thank you!

Does purple cabbage taste like the white cabbage? I prefer to eat cabbage cooked because I was once forced to eat a full raw cabbage in a team building camp challenge and has since gotten a phobia with raw cabbage's taste :D I have not seen a purple cauliflower either. But I do like purple sweet potatoes. It is so important to eat healthy isn't it, for our well being and to feel good about ourselves, to be able to do the things that we want to do. Thank you for sharing @fitinfunfood, and the health food site link :)

Oops! Yes, I will get my link over to you now. So sorry!

Purple cabbage tastes different to me. It has a stronger flavor I enjoy. But no one ever forced me to eat it lol. When I cook it, I usually do so very briefly to keep the crunch that I like.

I had no idea how important eating well was for most of my life. Now I think of food as medicine and try to get the best I can at all times. What a great difference this has made for me.

I'm so glad you like the post, @marblely, and thank you for running such an interesting contest. I will try to enter each week now.

Purple cabbage tastes different

same for red (purple) onion - they taste different, very different. I like red/purple cabbage, shredded, in my salad.

Thank you so much for the mention! I'll try my best to join but no promises hehe. Thanks again and have a great day!

You're welcome, @sgbonus. If not this week, it is ongoing with different themes :)

Welcome to #ccc!

My red/purple vegetable is missing - onion. But, I love the others.

Those photos made me hungry ... I love your favorite vegetable cooked with my favorite vegetable, the onion... good eating all around...

I am also on a natural journey to slim down and achieve better health and this was an inspiration -- thank you!
