When it comes to choosing meat, beef is always a good alternative. It is a good source of essential nutrients, such as protein, iron, zinc, selenium thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin D, phosphorus, pantothenate, magnesium and potassium. 

Besides being delicious, beef is lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than other kinds of meat, especially if you use organic, grass-finished beef. See this list of online meat delivery services that you can buy from.

Beef is perfectly paired with vegetables. That’s why we choose it to prepare in our cabbage soup. It provides a gorgeous taste and light texture.

Beef enjoys rich seasoning. We’ve made many delicious low carb beef recipes you can check. Garlic powder, a bay leaf, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper are always a great addition to this soup. Have them on hand for all of your cooking needs!

For vegetables, we use chopped green cabbage and diced tomatoes. They are packed with phytonutrients, vitamins, fiber and minerals, which makes them a great addition to any diet. You can use fresh tomatoes if you want to.

Cabbage is well-known for its ability to fight cancer (1). It contains organosulfur compounds, which act as direct antioxidants in the body to reduce inflammation. Cabbage also has anti-platelet, fibrinolytic, immunomodulatory, and anti-aging properties (2). 

Organosulfur compounds have also been shown to protect against neural disorders, including Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. They work by enhancing cellular antioxidant capacity and through the activation of pathways that control the expression of genes involved in the detoxification process (3).
