Cabbage is Delicious

Okay, first of all happy last day of November.  How did that happen?

So true.
I am happy to report that I am about 95% finished with Christmas shopping.  Of course I started at the beginning of October, so I have been working on it for a while.  Don't judge (or be jealous).

After the Thanksgiving feast that lasted and lasted I began feeling a little vegetable deprived.  Let's face it most of the delicious Thanksgiving sides are carb least my favorites are.  Anyway this week I have felt the need to go veggie crazy so hopefully I can get back to feeling fabulous.  Last night for dinner I made cabbage.  Yes, cabbage for a big salad...but this would also make an awesome side.  Here are the details....

Cabbage with Turkey Bacon

  • one large cabbage cut into large bite size pieces
  • one onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • 8 pieces of turkey bacon cut into slices
  • olive oil from a Misto or cooking spray
  • sea salt
  • pepper
Spray the bottom of a large stew pot or dutch oven with cooking spray or olive oil.  Saute onion over medium heat until translucent and then add turkey bacon.  After the turkey bacon has warmed and cooked a little, add cabbage.  Turn the heat down to low and cover.  Stir cabbage every 10 minutes or so and cook until the cabbage is tender.  Add sea salt and pepper to taste.  The cabbage takes about 30 minutes on a low heat.

As a meal this made 4 servings that came in at 4 weight watchers points +, as a side the recipe is closer to 8 servings which are 2 points + each.

Have I mentioned before that I love my yellow dutch oven?

I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Tell me...was your turkey day carb heavy?  Are you also craving vegetables this week?  Which ones are you loving?


  1. Turkey day always leaves me craving healthy foods and salads for the next week. But, I looove Thanksgiving and would not trade the feast for anything.

  2. My turkey day was carb heavy...I love sides. I think that is the best part of Thanksgiving and lots of body hates me a little for it now but we are working on making up.


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments make my day and I do my very best to respond to each and every one of them.
