Cabbage Fever!


Cabbage is a great winter vegetable and a true friend to a healthy colon. Offering significant amounts of soluble and insoluble fiber, cabbages are thought to help reduce your risk of cancer according to the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Cabbage can be aggravating to Vata dosha so be sure to use a pinch of Hing (asafoetida) to reduce gas and bloating. Kaphas will benefit from eating this non-starchy, slightly bitter green. Pittas, eat cabbages in moderation.

Here’s a brief article on the benefits of cabbage. Check back to Veda Health for my article on the different types of cabbage and their nutrition benefits!
