Superfoods: Honey Lime Cabbage

Honey lime cabbage is one of our most popular garnishes, and for good reason! Not only does it have a fresh, regionally specific flavor, it is a powerful combination of rich superfoods. In order to ensure the best quality, health benefits, and flavor, we source organic red cabbage, squeeze our fresh lime juice from whole limes, and use only raw honey from a local beekeeper. Build your own bowl

 Red cabbage, lime juice, and raw local honey are rich in nutrients and bioactive compounds, each offering a unique array of scientifically supported health benefits. Red cabbage, in particular, is packed with anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants responsible for its deep purple hue. These compounds have been shown to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which can lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Additionally, red cabbage is a rich source of vitamins C and K, which support immune function and bone health, respectively. Its high fiber content also promotes digestive health and can aid in weight management by providing a sense of fullness.Tacos

 Lime juice is a potent source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient known for its immune-boosting properties. This citrus fruit's acidic nature helps improve the absorption of iron from plant-based foods, which is particularly beneficial for individuals at risk of anemia. The flavonoids in lime juice exhibit strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, contributing to improved cardiovascular health by reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Moreover, the natural citric acid in lime juice can aid digestion and prevent kidney stones by increasing urine citrate levels, which inhibit stone formation.

 Raw local honey is known for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, largely attributed to its unique blend of enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants. Unlike processed honey, raw local honey retains its natural phytonutrients, such as polyphenols, which help combat oxidative stress and support heart health. Consuming honey from local sources may also help alleviate symptoms of seasonal allergies by exposing the immune system to small amounts of pollen, potentially leading to desensitization. Additionally, honey's natural sugars provide a healthier alternative to refined sugars, offering sustained energy release without the rapid spikes and crashes associated with high-glycemic sweeteners.

 We believe the foods we eat can and should support our health and vitality. We put thought, resources, and effort into the sourcing and preparation of everything we serve. We don't think there is a tradeoff between flavor and health, but rather a supportive synergy between the two.
