Cabbage leaves stuffed with butternut squash and mushrooms

Fall recipe

Perfect dish for dinner

This recipe is an ideal complete dish for the dinner. You can accompany it with a salad with walnut oil, sprinkled with ground flax seeds to get your intake of alpha-linolenic acid, the first fatty acid in the omega 3 lineage. Cabbage is rich in folic acid (vitamin B9). It is the only

B group vitamin found in vegetables. It is best known for its importance in pregnant women and its involvement in the growth of the fetus and the development of the neural tube. But vitamin B9 has many other metabolic interests. It is particularly involved in the homocystein ​​cycle and methylation processes.

The methylation process is physiological and responsible for modulating the expression of our genes through the transcription or repression of our DNA. Thus, a defect in methylation is the cause of premature ageing, an increase in cardiovascular risk, a defect in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, and cognitive disorders. The next time you take a blood test, check your level of methylation by measuring homocystein ​​;-) And eat cabbage!
