Step 17: Add cabbage a few times a week.This superfood is packed with Vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals. Cabbage has the highest amount of some of the most powerful antioxidants found in cruciferous vegetables – phytonutrients such as thiocyanates, lutein, zeaxanthin, isothiocyanates, and sulforaphane, which stimulate detoxifying enzymes.
Step 18: Replace white vinegar with apple cider or balsalmic vinegar. Vinegar is mostly used for pickling, but this superfood actually functions in the body to accomplish many positive effects including: Antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-glycemic, supports heart health and weight loss, supports the body’s fight against cancer, aids in heartburn and reflux, and increases nutrient absorption. But, the white stuff is only helpful for cleaning, for nutrition, stick to the colored, and cloudy vinegars.
