Cabbage is an easy vegetable to use for meal prep because it is so versatile. It can be eaten cooked, raw, or fermented. My favorite ways to eat cabbage are in a Cole Slaw, stir fry, soup, or as Sauerkraut. Here is one of my favorite Cole Slaw recipes to make that is full colorful fruits and vegetables.
To be honest, kale has never been one of my favorite vegetables. I don’t know why. I guess there were always other vegetables that were easier to prepare for me and (I thought) tasted better. But, because I know it has amazing health benefits I have been trying to find ways to make it taste delicious. This recipe so far has been the best!
So, what are more specific things to look for when buying fresh fruit? These are the main things I look for when choosing fruit by category:
Citrus Fruits - This includes lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruits, etc. I love it when my citrus fruits are juicy and just the right balance of sweet and sour. When I feel the outside of a citrus fruit I am assessing for that gentle “bounce back” that it can give. Try it for yourself and see if you notice it.
I love buying fruits! My early childhood years were spent in a tropical climate and I always had an abundance of tasty fruits to eat. Some of my earliest memories are of eating watermelon daily on the balcony, looking for lemons or mangos on the trees in my back yard, eating around the seeds of a guava, and finding dates on the ground under the palm trees by the water.
