Clean Eating Chicken & Cabbage

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Cabbage is part of the cruciferous family of vegetables named because of the cross (crucifix) shaped flowers. Medical researchers have found that the phytochemicals in cabbage known as indoles inhibit the growth of colon, stomach and breast cancer. On the down side, excessive amounts of cabbage in the diet may lead to problems with the thyroid gland. Cabbage prepared in coleslaw has significant amounts of iron, vitamin C, potassium and calcium.

Given all of it’s incredible health benefits I tried to eat a head of cabbage each week.

Here’s one of my favorite ways to prepare it.


1 head cabbage, finely chopped
1 pound ground chicken or turkey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 clove garlic, crushed and minced
1 medium onion, diced
Add Bragg’s liquid amino acid and chili sauce to taste
Salt and pepper to taste


In a large frying pan or wok sauté minced garlic and onion until slightly brown.  Add in ground chicken or turkey and cook until no longer pink.  Add cabbage, liquid spices, salt and pepper and cook until cabbage is tender

Serve over brown rice or rice noodles.
