I love food, cooking, nutrition, and eating… put it all together and what have you got!? This blog! Through my dabbling I have realized I am a strong believer in clean eating. I hope my documenting of family recipes and random dabbling though food inspires you to do even more!

Cabbage Salad - Creamy AND Tart
I really really enjoyed this salad. I prefer the creamy, but put up both because I made both. I have had a draw to cabbage the last few months, and finally it appeared in the market. The red. One of the farmers was so kind enough to even sell the smaller head of cabbage for 50 cents instead of the 1$ he was selling his "duds" for. TOO COOL! After making the salad and totally indulging in it, I was wondering what it could be good for!? After some research I learned that there is a popular cabbage diet, because cabbage is good in aiding weight loss. I also learned that cabbage is great for the brain and actually can be used to help prevent Alzheimer's! This struck a light bulb in my head and connected two dots that had yet been connected. I remember way back in one of my massage therapy classes, actually a side class I took in sound therapy (stay with me now!) the instructor said how in Chinese medicine, they believe that the food you eat aids in the body part it resembles. IE: Kidney beans for the kidney, Celery for the bones, and cabbage for… You guessed it! For the brain Too cool right!? Anyway I was quite amused and had some food for thought while I chomped down another serving of my salad. :) Enjoy!
