Cooked cabbage is extremely good for our digestion and, even better, is the “cooked” version that we get when we make sauerkraut. Fermentation not only gives us digestive enzymes and probiotics but it makes all of the vitamins and minerals inherent in the vegetables and fruits more bio-available to our bodies. And it's delicious! We needn't eat a lot of it either. Condiments are vital go-alongs with our meals.
