Corned beef is low in calories but high in fat, which makes it an excellent keto food. It’s also an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. So, don’t worry about putting on weight. Besides, it is rich in essential minerals like zinc, iron, phosphorus, selenium, and copper. 

Make sure you look for a brand of ham or corned beef that does not contain gluten. Our 2-Minute Reuben in a Bowl is just the dish to make corned beef one of the healthiest foods.

As for cabbage, it has many nutrition benefits, among which are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cancer prevention, digestive tract support and cardiovascular support. If you are trying to improve your diet, cabbage is a great way to go.

Sauerkraut is essentially fermented cabbage. During the fermentation process, beneficial probiotics or ‘live bacteria” are produced, and these probiotics are what give sauerkraut most of its health benefits.

This healthy ensemble is accompanied by olive oil, so you can feel good about the dietary properties and nutrition facts concerning the ingredients. Cook and enjoy!
