To most people, cabbage is just synonymous with coleslaw. But although it’s tasty in this capacity, cabbage is also good for juicing and has the healthy nutrient profile to make it a worthwhile addition to your juicing shopping list. Purple cabbage is very low in calories and contains many antioxidants. It’s also a good source of carbohydrates, and loaded with vitamin C – 80 percent of your recommended daily intake in just one cup! Purple cabbage also contains vitamin K and the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium. It’s got a certain subtle flavor to it that should interact well with the bittersweet tang of the grapes and the acidity of the orange. Try this recipe and find out for yourself!
