Purple Cabbage Sweet and Sour Salad
Saying goodbye is never easy, and as summer comes to a close, we hang on to the last days. Summer is amazing with all the fresh fruit and vegetables, but fall and winter bring their special flare. I believe this Purple Cabbage Sweet and Sour Salad recipe bridges the gap of summer flavors and the yumminess of fall flavors.
One thing that is a pleasure to say goodbye to is sickness and disease! By eating more plants and even better more organic plants we give our bodies the best chance to heal and be whole. I love shopping at places that give me great choices for organics. One of my favorite places is Natural Grocers. They take all the guess work out of buying fresh organics by having the highest standards and 100% certified organic produce. It is pleasure to shop with this much confidence in a food retailer.
