I’m sure this is what I will be saying when the hubby sees me cooking cabbage again tonight. This will be the third time this week. Umm…well.. I don’t know why, but I’m a little in love with my “fried” (sautéed) cabbage. Yes it’s totally cliché that a person from the south would fry cabbage…but this is actually healthy and not deep-fried, just sautéed in a little butter…don’t worry. 🙂 And, yes I know it’s totally weird…
Well, let me explain. You know how sometimes when you smell something it reminds you of a memory or a happy place? I had forgotten about how my great-grandmother loved to make “fried” cabbage almost every Sunday after church.
I cooked some sautéed cabbage Monday night and immediately thought of those great memories. And, when I tasted that wonderful taste when it was nice and cooked down soft and browned…well it took me to a happy place.
I know I sound crazy, and that’s ok. I’m just happy to have an obsession with a healthy food. If I’m not going to eat very much meat any more, this is one veggie dish I think I could eat every night. No, thankfully for my husband I won’t cook it every night…but the cabbage was on sale at our local grocery store for .38 cents! So, it might be every other night until next month…hehehe. 🙂
And it must be doing something good for me because when I weighed this morning I was down another pound. Bam! Heck Yes! Is there something in cabbage that promotes weight loss? I know I’ve heard of a cabbage soup diet for weight loss. I might have to make up a “fried” cabbage diet…uh no…don’t worry folks I won’t do that. But, seriously, it’s amazing, cheap, easy to fix, and tastes so good! I would take my “fried” cabbage over any french fry! (And I used to have a super obsession with french fries!!!) Yet again, so glad this obsession is with something that’s actually good for me.
Are there any foods that y’all have become obsessed with since you started eating healthier? Or am I just crazy…? -a definite possibility… Better question is does anyone else have foods that takes them back to a happy memory or place?
