What are the benefits of eating coleslaw? 

In addition to its cancer-fighting ability, cabbage lowers “bad” LDL cholesterol, is a good source of fiber, and is high in vitamin C and vitamin K. It also provides you with calcium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B6, manganese and folate. It is also high in glutamine, an amino acid with anti-inflammatory properties. (Goodle page, 07.25.2018)
