Red cabbage
Red cabbage is less widely used than green cabbage but it has the added benefits of being loaded in anthocyanin polyphenols, which give cabbage it's wonderful colour. What that means is the cabbage has significantly more protective phytonutrients than green cabbage. Red cabbage is therefore anti-inflammatory, and has protective properties to prevent disease.
Red cabbage also tastes pretty great. Raw steamed or included in a stir fry red cabbage is inexpensive and one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat.
