Cabbage is good for you! Contrary to the popular myth spread by evil minions opposing the “whole foods can heal you” movement, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables, won’t give you a goiter! Yes, you can quote me on that. There is nothing I despise more than a good sounding lie, and “cruciferous vegetables are goiterogenic” is one of them.
Don’t be afraid to eat your cabbage. It won’t destroy your thyroid gland! I have eaten cabbage my whole life (I don’t know if it’s the Russian in me, or because our family really likes cabbage), before and after my hypothyroidism diagnosis, yet, I never had a goiter, and still was able to cure hypothyroidism without any medications, while eating cabbage in unthinkable amounts.
Did I already tell you that I like cabbage? I like it in soups, I like it fermented (think sauerkraut), I like cabbage rolls, and I like it in salads. I could probably come up with 101 ways to enjoy cabbage.
So, today I am going to share one of my absolute favorite cabbage salad recipes. It’s so easy to make, you will slap yourself silly for not thinking of this recipe yourself.
