Cabbage is a versatile and nutrition packed vegetable that we often see a lot of in the fall. I just picked up a beautiful savoy cabbage from the farmers market last week! Cabbage is loaded with vitamin k, vitamin c and fiber and can add an extra boost of nutrition to soups, casseroles or eaten as a side grilled, baked or pan fried.

Taking an hour or two on the weekend or on a day off can really make a difference in the ease of eating throughout the week. If your family is anything like mine they love fruits and veggies but I'm usually the only one that cleans them and chops them up! When the celery and grapes are ready to eat in a container in the fridge they are easy for everyone to eat for snacks or meals.
Don't forget about frozen fruits and vegetables that can easily be added to meals to increase nutrition. Frozen mangos, blueberries, broccoli and green beans are a family favorite! Keeping a variety of frozen options can really speed up meal prep for the week!
