You don’t need quinoa (kee-NU-wah) to eat healthy.
Below awaits a recipe with local, seasonal & afforadable ingredients that together create a soup that is exceptionally good for your health.
If you are battling the flu or trying to ward one off, this is the perfect soup to make!
When my parents used to force me as a kid to eat savoy cabbage soup (in Croatian: kelj), I’d make all kinds of funny faces at them and fiddle with my food. Now I find myself cooking the same stuff, ah the irony!
Turns out cabbage is just as good for you as my parents were saying. You’d need about 10 different supplement pills to get what you can get out of 100 grams of cabbage (vitamins A, B & K, and minerals iron, calcium & magnesium).
Also, because cabbage only contains 30 calories per 100 grams (in comparison, cheese contains 400 calories per 100 grams) all types of cabbage are perfect for weight loss & maintaining a healthy weight.
