Rainbow Veggie Wraps

Print

One thing I love about the raw food diet is how vibrant and alive the colors of the food are. You just can’t help feeling happy and excited as you eat your food. It is so important to eat all the colors of the rainbow, so I always try to add a variety of shades to my meals. Each different color has its own unique nutritional benefits for our health. These cabbage wraps are the essence of that, thus the name rainbow wraps. They are filled with all the colors of the rainbow and all the variety of their flavors from sweet to salty and tangy. It makes for quite the robust flavor.

This rainbow veggie salad is an awakening to your taste buds on all levels. Nothing like the addition of aromatic fresh herbs, especially my favorites – basil and cilantro!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Red cabbage provides antioxidant benefits, as it's rich in beta carotene and polyphenols. In its cooked state, it's easier for the body to absorb antioxidants and it's best to avoid boiling the cabbage as the water will remove nutrients from the cabbage. Native to the Mediterranean and Turkey regions, cilantro possesses a good amount of antioxidants and fiber, and is rich in manganese, iron, potassium, magnesium and calcium. It's also great in combination with soups, sauces and poultry dishes. 1/4 cup/4 g of cilantro contains 1 calorie; 0 g fat; 0 g carbohydrates; 0 g protein; 2% daily value (DV) of vitamin C and 5% DV of vitamin A.
