The good things first – I can eat cabbage, without any apprehensions, when it is used as a part of a bigger salad ensemble or layered between multiple slots of a sandwich. I like the crunchiness, I like the greenness of this leafy veggie. However, there is one problem – if I eat it too raw or too cooked, it challenges my threshold for patience.

So not just macaroni or noodles, cabbage-ing it now also means simple sandwiches, dicing the wavy bands for dips, and using it as an accessory to add color to any preparation. Something as simple as Maggi appears visually more captivating if you add some beetroot and red cabbage to it though it does not change the taste in any way. Next, foreseeable, target is maintaining the same intake as summers approach - my most hated part of the year when it also becomes hard to keep the salads fresn and sane.
