The beauty of this recipe is that it consists primarily of sweet vegetables (when cooked). This is good for you because it can help take away some of the sweet cravings. And while the cabbage may not taste sweet, it has a similar effect on the body in that it maintains blood sugar levels, reduces sweet cravings and helps break down animal foods.Stir-Fry Sweet Vegetables for your sweet tooth. #WhatsCookingWithBarbara Click To Tweet
