Microgreens Cabbage and Berries

14. February 2023

This salad made with Microgreens Cabbage and Berries, are super delicious and colorful.
Did you know your digestion starts when you look at your food? When you look at food you stimulate the production of digestime enzymes by triggering the release of the digestive hormones gaskin and secretin. This is why I always suggest 5 colors on your plate at every meal, because what is more inviting that a great colorful looking plate of food?

Also a great composition of ingredients in your salads are very beneficial for your digestive health, due to the high amount of fibers in the berries and vegetables.

Use seasonal ingredients

I always choose fresh, organic, in season and locally grown food, whenever possible.
Here in the winter time, you will often see some sort of cabbage as a base in my salads.
They are inexpensive and have great nutritional value.
A head of cabbage can provide many meals, and can be enjoyed both raw, sautéed, boiled and broiled.

This salad with Microgreens, Cabbage and Berries is super easy to make, and its both colorful and nutritious.

In “My Seven Steps – Food” you can find more detail on my approach to the Healthy Made Simple lifestyle.


These little powerhouses has become a must have ingredient at almost every meal.
Microgreens are up to 40x more potent in phytochemical than the mature plant. They taste amazing and brings great color to any dish like salads, sandwiches, soup or dinner dishes.

Microgreens have a high level of antioxidants and polyphenols, and they are very rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. You also get a great source of vitamins, minerals and fibers.


For this salad I have used red cabbage. The deep purple color is so inviting to eat, especially on these more grey and cooler winter days. 
Red cabbage is, just like the cabbage, a powerhouse of antioxidants, with a high amount of Vitamin C and K as well as B6 and fibers. On top of that you also get polyphenols and sulfur.

Cabbage is linked to support bone- and heart health, lower inflammation and protect against certain types of cancer.


Blueberries are a small but powerful fruit packed with essential nutrients. They are one of the highest antioxidant-rich fruits, which help protect the body from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
Blueberries are a good source of vitamin C and K, as well as Manganese and fibers. You also find calcium and potassium and flavonoids in this little super fruit.

Some of the health benefits of blueberries are reduced risk of diseases like heart disease, cancer and alzheimers and cholesterol levels. You’ll also get cognitive support and blood sugar support


Blackberries are a type of fruit that are not only delicious, but also packed with numerous nutritional benefits. They are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin C and K, manganese and folate as well as a great source of fiber which is important for your digestion.

Blackberries are known to help support cognitive function, improve blood sugar levels, and reduce cholesterol, due to their high fiber and antioxidant content.

Pecan nuts

Pecans are a type of tree nut that are not only delicious but also provide a range of nutritional benefits.
They are high in antioxidants, healthy fats and fibers. You’ll also get thiamin, zinc and magnesium from these delicious nuts.

Keep in mind, nuts in general are high in calories, so you might want to eat them in moderations.

The health benefits of eating pecan nuts are reduced risk of heart disease, LDL cholesterol, cancer and alzheimers. Also your blood sugar levels and metabolism can benefit from pecans as well as promote the growth of beneficial gut bacteria.

For this salad you need:

1/4 red cabbage
2 oz of microgreens
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup of blackberries
1 cup of pecan pieces

Slice the red cabbage thin and cut the microgreens roughly.
If the blackberries are big, you can cut them in half.
Mix everything in a bowel, and add the pecan pieces before serving.
I also like to add crumbled goats cheese once in a while.
