The weekly spread: Cabbage Patch
I grow a lot of cabbage. It's getting big enough to harvest, so we will be eating a lot of cabbage the next few weeks. If you don't grow your own, cabbage is still a BUDGET FRIENDLY food. At my local smiths, you can pick up a bag of chopped cabbage for $1.50, that's a steal!
Cabbage is a nutrition powerhouse. It has as much vitamin C as an orange, and is also a good source of vitamin K, potassium (which is good for your heart) and antioxidants (which protect against diseases like cancer).
Here's my menu this week, a tribute to my cabbage patch!
Monday: Cabbage soup + breadsticks (I made a double batch of soup so I could bring some camping this weekend)
Tuesday: Beef and Cabbage stir fry with ramen noodles on the side
