Slow-Cooker Cabbage

I absolutely love vegetables. It's honestly comical how many times per day I say the word veggies to my husband. I think it's because when I don't eat enough vegetables my digestion get's out of whack. According to Ayurveda I have some vata tendencies. With vata digestion might be delicate, dry or irregular and vegetables help balance your system. Vegetables and fruits provide water and fiber to keep your body running clean. Here is a quick and easy side dish to nourish your digestion. I love to serve it with pasture-raised chicken and a little butter from our local creamery. It's a quick and healthy low-carb side dish with plenty of flavor. Not to mention super cheap to make at less than 15 cents per serving. 

Cabbage is a healing food that may be correlated with cancer prevention. It also contains polyphenols which may help reduce inflammation from chronic stress, sickness and disease. In case you needed one more reason to try cabbage it may aid in healing the digestive tract and stomach. Enjoy different varieties of cabbage 2-3 times per week!
