Sweetheart Coleslaw

Cabbage – Surprisingly, cabbage is richer in vitamin C than oranges. This roughage food helps to reduce the amount of free radicals in the body, and is great for preventing premature aging. Cabbage is a great food to eat more of if you have been burning the candle at both ends. Cabbage has been reported to treat ulcers, depression, boost the immune-system and aid treatment of certain cancers.
