For years, conventional wisdom has been that dairy is the king when it comes to foods rich in calcium. And while it is undeniable that milk, cheese, and yogurt are jampacked with this important mineral, they are not the only game in town! Consider, for example, the common and humble cabbage.
Not very many of us know a lot about radicchio. It is one of those vegetables that seem to linger on the sidelines. You may have even accidently grabbed a head of it at the grocery store thinking it was red cabbage. But cabbage it is not. Radicchio is actually a type of leaf-chicory, as is Belgian endive.
Some people may not like to cook cabbage because of the unpleasant smell. The smell is pretty strong and gets stronger the longer you cook it. However, as you will see, the benefits outweigh the smell, so it is important to learn more about this nutrient packed vegetable and consider adding it to your diet.
