Cabbage and Kale Salad

Fresh From the Kitchen at Rawmazing.com

A Chopped Red Cabbage 
We're in the midst of a deep winter here in the UK, sadly many people are bogged down - not only with snow but also with colds and flu. Therefore some look for healthier diets during this period in the hope it will boost their immune systems. 

So with this in mind I stumbled across this wonderful Kale and Cabbage salad put together by the team over at rawmazing.com.

Here's what they have to say about it:

".....We all know that cabbage is one of the cruciferous veggies that are so good for us and purple cabbage has an even higher concentration of  anthocyanin polyphenols, which are significantly more protective phytonutrients than green cabbage......"

Ever since my school dinner days I've never been a fan of cabbage, but I'm sure this tastes great with the creamy honey mustard dressing they suggest.

If you're looking for cabbage and kale for this recipe may I suggest a scottish farmed kale and 
organic red cabbage from the pantry of Real Foods in Edinburgh? 

I hope you enjoy this simple yet nutritious recipe! 

Cheers, Jennifer

Here at "Raw Food Online" we love berries of all shapes and sizes, so much so that we decided to create a colourful cartoon infographic about them, well four of them at least. But, did you know that blueberries protect the brain from toxic stress?

Me neither but thanks to this chap from naturalfoodsdiet.org, Dr. Richard Gerhauser I do now.

Richard really knows how to present a good video, and he has coined a wonderful phrase "Let Food Be Your Medicine", so without wasting anymore of your time, I'll leave you in Dr Rich's competent company!
