Red's the New Black for Fighting Off Breast Cancer

by Kris Pitcher

Red is the new black! Chock-full of antioxidants and low in calories, research suggests that foods from the cabbage family are particularly powerful breast cancer fighters. Try shredded red cabbage, cooked with a chopped apple for sweetness, as a simple but bold side-dish to any meat-based meal.
Or, give your tastebuds something new to savor with a Red Cabbage Slaw:

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons celery seed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 head red cabbage, cut into roughly 1 1/2-inch chunks
2 small carrots, grated
1 small red onion, chopped
1 cup golden raisins
In a large bowl, whisk together vinegar and sugar until dissolved. Slowly whisk in oil, celery seed, salt and pepper to taste. Toss in cabbage, carrots, red onion and raisins to coat well. Cover and let sit at least 1 hour.
