Jennifer along with her chefs and nutritional experts have spent time creating some loved dishes here at Balance Box. Here are some below that you can try yourself at home.

Christmas Spiced Red Cabbage – Side Dish

Red cabbage is grown in the UK and is in season from September to December.

Part of the Brassica family (think broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, kale, etc.), Red Cabbage is rich in beneficial plant compounds, linked to an array of health benefits. For example, the high levels of antioxidant anthocyanin give red cabbage its distinctive colour, just like those found in berries, pomegranates and red wine, and may offer anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-cancer benefits.

Cavolo nero is another member of the Brassica family, complimenting the cabbage and giving the dish an extra dose of phytonutrients and fibre.

Traditional spices, cranberries, and orange make this the perfect side for your festive feast.


Our twist is on the classic red cabbage Christmas side, with cavolo nero and walnuts for added texture and crunch.

I fell in love with Gazpacho when my Spanish friend Pilu made it for me.  She brought it with her in a flask to a picnic we had in Central Park, giving me my first taste of this classic soup.  I was very impressed – even more so when I learnt what a speedy recipe it can be.
