Cabbage Helps Your Liver Detox!
Cabbage is part of the cruciferous family of vegetables which are known to help the liver remove toxins from the body. Incorporate these roasted cabbage slices into your diet weekly.
These are super simple to make and the Fennel Seeds gives it a slightly sweet flavor. I recommend buying Spicely brand spices that come in small packages for herbs and spices that you don’t use often. They are around $2-3 instead of the typical $6-7 for a full size organic spice. I don’t use fennel seed very often, but it works great on these cabbages so I opt for a small package of it.
I recommend using a basting brush to help coat the cabbages with organic extra virgin olive oil before cooking. For a low FODMAP diet stick to one cabbage slice and make sure you’re buying Green Cabbage, not Napa Cabbage (which is high FODMAP).
