Optimized for Great Health and Weight

Nutrition is not due to one special ingredient. Whole plant foods provide a myriad of known and unknown nutrients that help us stay healthy and trim.

Since there are no oils or sugars, this dish is truly protective of your health.

The beans are practically a superfood, rich in iron, magnesium, zinc, complex carbohydrates and resistant starch. The healthy starches in them keep you full for longer, suppress hunger and feed the good bacteria in your gut. Overall, you lose weight and gain health with beans!

Cabbage belongs to the family of cruciferous vegetables and is rich in antioxidants, vitamins C, E, K and isothiocyanates such as sulforaphane which prevent disease such as cancer.

Onions and garlic contain potent antioxidants as well as organosulfur compounds. Antioxidants practically are the best detoxifiers and are vital for great health.

The savory, mint, bay leaf, marjoram, and parsley are also nutritional powerhouses, rich in antioxidants, minerals, and micronutrients.

The essential fats are not forgotten and the flax seeds cater to those all-important Omega-3 fats.
