Cabbage belongs to the Brassica genus and is closely related to other veggie favourites including broccoli, Brussel sprouts and cauliflower. A wellbeing staple, cabbage is high in nutrients and well worth adding to savoury dishes. It’s high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant for supporting the immune system and helping to keep cells healthy. This helpful vitamin also works to mop up damaging free radicals that our body produces as a natural part of metabolism.
