Our spicy red cabbage salad works very well when looking to lose weight and/or stay healthy. The salad is a real vitamin bomb and shows once again that healthy also tastes delicious at the same time. One serving of red cabbage alone covers the daily requirement of vitamin C. It also contains vitamin K and secondary plant substances. These flavonoids are antioxidants. The other ingredients are also very powerful. The pomegranate is not called food of the gods for nothing. So it is full of antioxidants, which catch the free radicals. Other ingredients are potassium, calcium and iron.
Like olive oil, almonds have monounsaturated fatty acids and a lot of magnesium. In general, you should always eat a handful of nuts a day.
The ginger, which is responsible for the seasoning in lettuce, makes lettuce easier to digest and brings warmth into the body.
Have fun cooking.
