Do you hate eating cabbage? If you are anything like me, then you may not consider cabbage to be one of the better tasting vegetables. But with all of the wonderful health benefits this cruciferous vegetable can give your body it really is worth it to get as much of it as you can in your daily diet.
Red or purple cabbage is loaded with compounds called anthocyanins which have been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory. If that’s not enough reason to start eating more cabbage, the glucosinolates found in in cabbage have also been shown to help prevent cancer.
So what is the easiest way to get a lot of cabbage for better health if you do not like smelling or eating cabbage? Juicing! You can juice up quite a bit of cabbage in the recipe below and you are not going to taste a thing.
This juice is packed with so many helpful micronutrients that do your body good and it tastes so good you are not going to have any problem getting it down as often as you feel like.
Purple Cabbage Anti-inflammatory Juice Recipe
Makes 500 ML

Just add all of the ingredients in your favorite juicer and enjoy. The lime and ginger really make this juice stand out and taste fresh and clean. Try this juice first thing in the morning to give you an awesome jumpstart on your day and you will feel great.
