Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, part of the family which includes broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, bok choy and cauliflower. Cruciferous veggies contain potent anti-cancer compounds. Consuming green vegetables like cabbage also lowers the risk of heart disease and diabetes. It also reduces inflammation in your body which is good for anyone with an autoimmune disease. I love juicing cabbage because of the high water content it contains. This helps you get the most bang for your buck! The lemons, lime and apple in this juice give it a sweet tangy flavor to make it light and refreshing.
Makes about 12 ounces of juice.
– ¼ of a medium organic green cabbage (approximately)
– 2 medium organic lemons
– ½ a medium organic lime
– ½ a large or one medium organic Gala or Fuji apple
Chop the cabbage into pieces that are small enough to fit into your juicer. Rinse and place the cabbage and the apple in a stainless silver bowl and cover them with water. Add about two tablespoons of white vinegar, stir and let it sit for at least two minutes. Drain the water and rinse the cabbage and apple again. Peel the lemons and lime and chop into pieces that are small enough to fit into your juicer. Core the apple and chop into medium sized pieces. Juice all of the ingredients. After you’ve made all of the juice, mix it back and forth into another container like you would a mixed drink.
Pour into a glass and enjoy!
