Helpful Hints

Cabbage in those convenient baggies seem to be drier than the cabbage you chop yourself.

Enjoy all day long, as the crunchiness curbs your appetite and adds marvelous fiber to your diet.

The calories are minimul along with fat content. I figure it takes more energy to digest this one.
