I call this one Berry Glad You Can’t Taste The Cabbage. Ha. I swear, you can’t!
Why cabbage? Cabbage and other cruciferous vegetables are good sources of glucosinolates that hydrolyze to indole-3-carbinol and isothiocyanate. Both are researched in cancer prevention, especially hormone-sensitive cancers. They’re also great for metabolic detoxification and liver support.
Hemp seeds contain 10 g of plant-based protein and 10 g of a omegas per 3 Tb serving. If you don’t have them on hand, you can substitute ground flaxseed or Chia seeds.
- 1/2 c frozen organic blueberries*
- 1/2 c frozen organic strawberries*
- 1/2 c Napa or Savoy cabbage, chopped
- 1/4 c raw unsalted cashews

*costco sells frozen organic bags, or you can substitute any fresh or frozen mixed berries.
