lowering cholesterol

The Vegetable of the Day…

…is definitely cabbage! I am a huge fan so I am really looking forward to dinner tonight. I like the corned beef and potatoes too, but I am definitely most excited for the cabbage.

If you happen to enjoy it too (or want some incentive to give it a try), you might appreciate knowing that cabbage is very high in both vitamin K and vitamin C. In addition, studies have shown that consuming cabbage can help lower cholesterol and even prevent cancer.

Another reason I’m excited for today – after years of eating and loving my Aunt Ellen’s Irish Soda Bread, I just got my hands on her recipe (originally my 100% Irish grandma’s) so I think it’s time that I give it a try…wish me luck! :)
