This is a great dish because it’s quick, easy, and super delicious and nutritious.  Cabbage is an awesome veggie known for its cholesterol lowering benefits, is loaded with antioxidants and fights inflammation in the body.  It has been shown in many studies to prevent and fight cancer.

Hemp seeds are a complete protein, one that is easily assimilated in the body.  These seeds are full of the awesome Omega-3’s that promote brain function and fight inflammation.
