1. Green cabbage
Often paired with corned beef on St. Patrick’s Day, fibre-filled green cabbage also goes nicely with a lean protein like chicken breasts, lean ground turkey, or tofu on the side. You heard right: Make this veggie the focus of your plate—it’s rich in fibre, vitamin C, folate, and manganese—and you’ll fill up on the good stuff faster and be less likely to grab seconds or dessert. Easiest recipe? Shred a small head of green cabbage and sprinkle with olive oil, vinegar, honey, sea salt, and pepper.
