If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know how I hate going hungry, which can be detrimental to any diet plan I follow. Especially with all of my complete meals in salads recipes.

Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry.
If you’re one that struggles to work vegetables into your diet (isn’t that pretty much all of us?) you’re going to love this Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry. It’s full of vegetables and absolutely addictive. And the best part? It uses vegetables that are super inexpensive so you can know that you’re doing your body and your wallet good. Winning!
I happened to have a half-pound of beef in my freezer leftover from my Baked Beef and Black Bean Tacos, so I used that as the meat component for the stir fry. Honestly, I think pork or even ground turkey would work just as well or better, and will most likely be less expensive than beef. You can use a whole pound of meat if you like extra protein, but I found that the half-pound I had given me just the right ratio of meat to cabbage.

Change Up Your Coleslaw Game
If coleslaw has always been your potluck go-to, this Asian-inspired slaw is a great way to change things up without going too far afield. It starts with a lot of the same ingredients, but uses scallions in place of red onion and swaps the creamy mayo- or sour cream-based dressing for one that’s lighter and made rice wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, and fresh ginger.
Beyond the potluck spread, serve it up with everything from pulled pork and grilled chicken to fish tacos and tofu. And when burger night rolls around, if you took this slaw from side dish to burger topping, you definitely would not be sorry.
Cabbage is one of those unsung heroes in the kitchen that, thanks to kimchi and sauerkraut has become quite cool lately. Other than around mid-March, you might not think too much about cabbage. But you should: It’s actually one of the most versatile veggies in your arsenal. If you’re just reserving it for slaws and salads, it’s time to broaden your horizons and discover some of the amazingly delicious things a simple head of cabbage can do.
But first, let’s start with a quick refresher: When it comes to buying a head of cabbage, you’ve got some choices. When you’re browsing through recipes or head to the produce aisle, there four cabbage varieties you’re most likely to come across: green, red, Napa, and Savoy. While all can be shredded and eaten raw in salads and slaws, mild and tender Napa cabbage is a common addition in stir-fries and soup, and Savoy cabbage, which is less crispy than the other varieties, does its best work when cooked (we particularly love it as a wrapper for cabbage rolls).
Slow-baked, sautéed, or shredded for slaw, the humble cabbage is one of the most versatile vegetables. All those people who tell you to discard the cabbage’s core? Don’t listen to them. Very thinly sliced, it’s absolutely delicious.
