A White Cabbage Lunch

Cabbage is one of my favorite beauty foods. It can be turned quickly into delicious meals that are a joy to look at, and to eat. Cabbage also combines well with other beauty foods to provide the nurture we need for healthy, glowing skin. Here is a recipe for a delicious cabbage lunch. It takes about 6 minutes to prepare.


  • 1 white cabbage
  • 3 tbs lemon juice
  • 4 tbs chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 4 tbs fresh cilantro


  • put the stock into a skillet on medium heat
  • quarter and slice the cabbage,
  • put it into a bowl
  • mix in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • stir the cabbage into the stock and cover
  • let it cook for 3 minutes
  • chop the garlic and cilantro
  • add the garlic, the other tablespoon of lemon juice, the olive oil, and the chopped cilantro
  • cover and let cook for 2 more minutes
  • The goal is to soften the garlic a little, taking some of the rawness out of it – no more than that
  • the cabbage should be just right by now – in between crisp and soft
  • It is ready to serve, with salt and black pepper to taste

I like to eat it with a can of sardines (in olive oil) and organic crackers that I break over it. What a delightful lunch this is, and so quick.

Here’s to food from nature’s kitchen that delights the eye and the palate; that is easy to prepare and inexpensive to buy; and that delivers the nutrients our skin needs to glow with health.

Beautiful skin is an inside job. Good food, a little exercise, plus a couple of minutes of simple daily care are all you need.
