Crunchy with a light flavor, cabbage is an easy vegetable to incorporate into keto menus. It has tender leaves that are great in slaws or salads. Cabbage is also hearty enough to hold up in soups, stir-fries, or braises.

Green cabbage – maybe the most common variety in your local grocery store – has just over 3 g of net carbs per 100 g serving. This superfood is also packed with vitamins A, C, and K, as well as magnesium, antioxidants, fiber, and other nutrients. Savoy cabbage has about the same number of net carbs as green cabbage. Red cabbage is the one to skip, as it has 5.3 g of net carbs per serving.

The easiest ways to incorporate cabbage? Try making a vinegar-based coleslaw or salad, toss a handful into soup, or braise a few thick slices.
