Default Quick Cabbage Question (Phase 1)

Howdy all!
Day 3 coming to a close...whew!

On the Phase 1 sheet I have dated 05/02/12 for allowable veggies it says "cabbage (Red, Pak Choi, Bok Choi)..."

So does this mean you can have ONLY those cabbages I just listed or can you have green cabbage and savory cabbage also?

The way its written it could be interpreted to mean you can have cabbage and be aware that they are putting red, pak choi and bok choi into that cabbage group....

Or am I being hopeful here...haha!
Whats the official ruling on this?
Thanks everyone!
Appreciate the help!
Jake

Actually just looked up green cabbage vs red cabbage:

Green: 1 cup raw:
22 cal...0 fat...5 carbs...2 fiber...3 sugars...1 protein

Red: 1 cup raw:
28 cal...0 fat...7 carbs...2 fiber...3 sugars...1 protein

So it would appear that green is actually "better" then red...lower cal and less carbs...

Oh my it does get funny when the discussion is cabbage and whats allowed and whats not! Never thought I would be discussing this topic!
Best to all;

And Savory Cabbage, raw, 1 cup is better yet! WOOHOO!
19 Cal....0 fat...4 carbs...2 fiber...2 sugar...1 protein

Less calories, less carbs...Savory seems like the way to go in the world of simple cabbages!

OMG I am busting a gut with this laughing...
Must be the phase 1 day 3 crazies!
Have to run...need more water!

Hey Jake...

I have read your data and I know it doesnt make any sense, but my coach has directed us to eat red cabbage only, and not green. I brought up a similar arguement, and she says it has to do with how we digest it??? I didnt question her...I honestly ate a bit of both, red if I had it, green if we were out of red. I did not see a difference in losses. Sorry I couldnt give you a better answer...

Thanks LE...red cabbage is fine with me also...I have been using so much hot pepper, not really going to taste it anyway, lol!

I remember as a kid my grandma and mom used to make it with vinegar and man did it smell...but hey, it was kickin-good!

Thanks for the info!
Cheers;

Anytime!! Ya me too with the peppers and hot sauce WOW!! I have always loved hot stuff but since I started this diet I could literally drink Chulula hot sauce haha...

There are also some great 0/0/0 buffalo wing sauces (even Franks) that I have now put on steak, chicken, and pork.

Funny thread! So true about what we discuss now. I eat green plain old cabbage all the time!! No problem! I love it roasted with EVOO and kosher salt, or sautéed. Yum!!!

My coach said green was fine. I eat it quite often. I have also noticed slower losses on the weeks I dont have it.
I cook a large pot of it, then use it frequently during the week.

For green cabbage, I baked this with no oil. Cabbage, onion and peppers with back pepper. Cover and bake 30 min at 400.

This was before IP, so I baked the red onions, but they didn't get too well done, so they didn't seem carmelized to me. I would eat this again on IP! And I will!



I made red cabbage last week with ACV, Splenda and EVOO plus caraway seeds. Not as tasty as butter, sugar and balsamic vinegar, but definitely I will make more.

I love cabbage!

Hey LE...check out the Taco Bell Hot Sauce in the bottle...I found it at Walmart and it is actually pretty good... 0 cal...0 carb...0 "everything" except 35mg sodium and it has some flavor and heat! I try a lot of hot sauces...love it!

Mom: Sounds good to me!

Mylastdiet: I planned on eating green, savory and red anyway...but now I am wanting the red cabbage, vinegar, little onion in there...cooked stovetop for like an hour...YUM! Maybe tomorrow night!

Locopollo...heck of a colorful pic! Looks awesome! I will be trying that out this weekend for sure, Thanks!

Can't live on water alone, afterall! Although it sure as **** feels like it past 3 days!

Cheers to all!
Jake

I haven't tried cabbage yet on IP and just picked up a head of it yesterday...what good timing for the veggie inspiration thread! Also, I have a jar of sauerkraut, any good ideas for that? I was thinking with ground turkey & mustard maybe?

Sauerkraut is great plain and just heated...I have had it cold many times too as a side dish/salad with mustard seed sprinkled in and love it!

When I was on atkins induction I used to heat it up, plate it and add some spicy brown mustard on top...like with a hotdog but without the hotdog,,,haha!

Getting back to cabbage, I am thinking cut into thin strips...seasoned with fresh sage and a sprig of rosemary, some minced garlic, black pepper, sea salt, and of course use my 2 tsp evoo to stir fry it all with fresh pork loin which I would marinate overnight in a lemon herb rub, wrapped in saran wrap. Maybe squeeze a lemon slice over it near the end of cooking...sounds like saturday's dinner to me!
Yum!
