Additive only begins to describe this easy cabbage salad recipe!
Well-planned vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines and contain all the nutrients that our bodies need. Some research has linked vegan diets with lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and lower rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer. You can view a vegan diet either in terms of what it excludes or what it includes. Vegan diets are known to help people lose weight. However, they also offer an array of additional health benefits.
For starters, a vegan diet may help you maintain a healthy heart. Moreover, this diet may offer some protection against type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. So, there are plenty of reasons why you should eat vegan salad.
An increasing number of people are turning to plant-based diets in the hope of shedding excess weight. In addition, several randomized controlled studies — the gold standard in scientific research — report that vegan diets are more effective for weight loss than the diets they are compared to. Interestingly, participants on the vegan diet lost more weight than those who followed low-calorie diets, even when the vegan groups were allowed to eat until they felt full. Even when they weren’t following their diets perfectly, the vegetarian and vegan groups still lost slightly more weight than those on a standard Western diet.
Bottom line: Vegan diets have a natural tendency to reduce your calorie intake. This makes them effective at promoting weight loss without the need to actively focus on cutting calories. Moreover, a great help for weight-loss from this salad is ginger. Ginger is among the healthiest (and most delicious) spices on the planet. It is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds that have powerful benefits for your body and brain. Studies that looked at ginger’s weight loss benefits suggests that ginger has a significant effect on body weight and belly fat.
- The balance between the amount of cabbage, orange, and seasoning is essential. If the cabbage is large-sized, you must increase the rest of the ingredients proportionally. Cut cabbage leaves lengthwise and very thinly to get the optimal texture. You can replace the honey with another sweetener, agave syrup, or panela cane sugar, for example.
- I love to make this for a brunch buffet. It’s good at room temperature and the cabbage and orange segments can be added fresh just before serving with the rest made and chilled in advance. And, if you’re not familiar with segmenting oranges, you simply cut a half-inch off the top and the bottom of the orange, slice, and peel off in five or six downward slices following the curved shape of the orange. This gets rid of the peel and the pith. Then holding the fruit in your left hand and cutting in between the skin segments with a knife in your right hand, you’ll end up with just the yummy part of the orange. About one minute per orange when you get good at it!
