Eat purple cabbage for great skin

part from lending itself to salads and main dishes, purple cabbage with its anti-oxidant properties also works wonders for the skin

This is a salad lover's delight! Thinly cut strips of purple cabbage with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar or Greek olive oil can create a fun, healthy dish. Purple cabbage is also pickled and added to stir-fries!

Health benefit:

The rich deep colour of this vegetable is due to a high concentration of anthocyanin polyphenols (strong dietary antioxidants, possessing anti-inflammatory properties), making it have even more phytonutrients than a green cabbage. A few studies also show that anthocyanins may help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. It is rich in anti-oxidants which makes skin supple and clear.

Keep the purple cabbage in a plastic bag and place it in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for up to two weeks.
