A member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, cabbage is packed with vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Recent studies have also shown that cruciferous vegetables including cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and others -- may also contain cancer-fighting properties. Combined with apples, they make a nutritious accompaniment.
