Why Eat Bread ...

...When you can substitute everything for cabbage!

Do not laugh, I am being serious. Bread, although tasty and deserving at times, is not something you should incorporate into your diet everyday due to high level of unwanted carbs, low fiber, iron and dirty words like "enriched."

My plea and cry for you is to consider substituting bread for lettuce and/or cabbage. Take two leaves for deli, cottage cheese, chicken, eggplant, salmon or even Nutella and peanut butter and jelly.  My fav cut up some triangles for enjoyable dips and spreads like sour cream and chives, hummus, peri peri chilli. Who needs bread?

Cabbage is one of the richest veges in terms of protective vitamins. Yes. raw cabbage cleans the waste from the stomach/upper bowels improving digestion and reduces constipation that's a good thing so don't be scared of the toilet. Known to be a cancer inhibitor, stimulates the immune system, kills harmful bacteria, soothes ulcers, and improves circulation. Outer leaves are a good source of vitamin E, making it good for the SKIN complexion. Also rich in vitamin C (raw white cabbage contains as much vitamin C as lemons) and sulphur. Yes all this for only 24 calories per 3.5 ounces.  Go, eat it up!

Now you know, there are alternatives to breads...
