I just found out that some call cabbage a "Cheap Doctor" since it's inexpensive and has lots and lots of health benefits.
My mom has been suffering from indigestion (something about acid problem) and can't eat too much of spicy foods, greasy, any other strong flavored foods anymore. One of her friends, who was having similar symptoms, told her that regular American (?) cabbage (not Korean cabbage) that you usually use for coleslaw is good for the stomach (acid and lining protection...etc..) and suggested the following EASY recipe.
**When we lived in Denver, Colorado in 90's there weren't many Koreans back there and not enough Korean groceries either. However, Koreans NEED Kimchi and back then we learned that we could use the American Cabbage Kimchi. It does taste different from Regular Korean Kimchi but it had to do.**
