Broccoli, Chinese Cabbage & White Radish

According to a commenter on this article on Quora, broccoli, Chinese cabbage and white radish are the three vegetables we should all eat in order to stay off aging and get the vitamins our bodies need to function. I cannot remember the last time I had cabbage or radish.

The nutrition goal this week is to get them and add them to the frig. My problem has always been that I try to buy fresh vegetables but they often sit in the freezer and start going bad until I eventually throw them out. I do buy canned or frozen vegetables. My recent go-to, for convenience, is a small bag of brown rice and mixed vegetables. I’ll throw in some tuna, hummus or something else to make it more of a dish.

I need to come up with a plan for how to better store and promptly eat fresh foods. I try to make regular trips to the supermarket, two to three a week, instead of simply trying to buy what I might eat within a couple of weeks. That seems to work and is better to keep me from buying fast food when I start to run low. Thankfully I live about a mile away from a couple of supermarkets and there is a WholeFoods being built just a couple of blocks north of my house.

This week, I am buying cabbage. I’ll have to figure out a way of cooking it without adding a lot of unhealthiness.
