Paleo / Primal / Bacon / CleanEats Lifestyle
You may have seen savoy cabbage in the grocery store and wondered “what is up with cabbage’s cousin”? It may look rough, tough and mean but it is actually a lot more tender and delicate than regular cabbage or red cabbage, thus making it perfect for slaws, salads, sautéing, or wraps. I like to sauté savoy cabbage because it takes no time time to tenderize so it is a quick side-dish, add some bacon…DONE AND DONE!
Like the rest of the cabbage family, savoy cabbage has high nutritional value. It is very low in calories, and contains no fat or cholesterol. It is a good source of dietary fiber, and protein. It is also rich in many vitamins and minerals, such as: Thiamine (B-1), folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, manganese, calcium, copper, phosphorous, and copper. They are also an excellent source of both Vitamins K and C. Each of the different types of cabbage have high nutritional value, as well as tremendous antioxidant and disease combating properties. These properties make cabbage one of the worlds healthiest foods.-SavoyCabbage.org
