Cabbage is an excellent food to have as a constant in your diet, especially if you follow a keto lifestyle! According to Delish, cabbage is one of the lowest-carb vegetables around! There are many ways that you can use it, and different varieties of it, too, such as red and green. Its adaptable nature makes it easy to throw it in soups, casseroles, skillet dishes, and more.
