The weather is still very chilly in Oz, and I am on the Sunshine Coast! I feel for all you southerners, lol. I have a strong intolerance to the colder weather!

This edition is all about cabbage. It is in season now but unfortunately prices for cabbages and lettuces are ridiculously through the roof at the moment. Spotted $9.80 each for a cabbage the other day at my local supermarket! Sadly so many catastrophic events recently in our beautiful country have damaged the growers crops and industries. Praying normality returns soon for theirs and the consumers sakes.

Cabbage is a very versatile failsafe vegetable and very underrated. It makes a great filler to pad out a recipe and make it go further and is very healthy for you. It can be used in stir fries, casseroles, salads, coleslaws and you can even use the leaves to make wraps and cabbage rolls with fillings. I hope some of these recipes inspire you to use cabbage a little more.

Fed Up Fact Sheet


Nitrates, Nitrites and Nitrosamines

Processed meats generally contain nitrates and nitrites that are used as preservatives and colour fixatives.
These additives have been associated with a range of intolerance symptoms such as headaches, irritable bowel symptoms, itchy rashes, asthma, children’s behaviour problems, difficulty falling asleep and frequent night waking, and the Food Intolerance Network recommends avoiding them. You can see reader reports about intolerance reactions to nitrates (including behaviour, growing pains, stuttering, headaches and asthma) in the link below.
In August 2009, the WCRF (World Cancer Research Fund) issued a warning to parents, suggesting they limit their children’s intake to 70 grams of processed meat per week.
Furthermore, according to the latest Expert Report from the WCRF (“Stopping cancer before it starts”), there is strong evidence that red and processed meats are causes of bowel cancer, and there is no amount of processed meat that can be confidently shown not to increase risk. The recommendation is to avoid processed meats completely.
Levels of nitrates are increasing in our food supply due to overuse of artificial fertilisers. Is it true that the amount of nitrate in a lettuce is more than that in ham? Does that mean you need to avoid vegetables too?
