Oh, Santa Baby!

Hey, was just The Season To Be Jolly when the images can be pretty heartening.

And if you were thinking French this Holiday Season, well there’s nothing wrong with reaching for the finer things in life.

Cartier if you please or, should I say, if you could have. But, then again, may be Santa climbed down your chimney with one of these super-sparklers from Louis Francois Cartier and had you instantly feeling like a million dollars when you stepped out.Cartier copy


Anyway — before getting ahead of ourselves here — you know there’s only one thing that can really keep you feeling your best, and it’s at the top of the list of the finer things in life.

Yup, you guessed it, your health which, incidentally, could also have you feeling like a million dollars.  And since we’ve just bid adieu to the Holiday Season and you may still be dead set on Cartier, let me add another one — Cartier that is — to your list:


Jacques Cartier, another Frenchman. The one who brought an-oft-overlooked nutrition jewel to the Americas back in 1536.Cabbage1Cropped

Yes, cabbage — the other Cartier — is a-jewel-of-a-powerhouse that, according to research, can improve your health and add years to your life. Years more to enjoy those super sparklers you may have acquired.


To put things into perspective, just consider these key links to this cruciferous vegetable which has long been used as food as well as medicine:

  • It is a potent source of natural antioxidants which can help minimize oxidation, thereby limiting cell damage and inflammation.
  • It has been found to play a significant role in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.
  • Can help steel us against cardiovascular illnesses.
  • Red cabbage in particular was found to contain some 36 anthocyanins — phytonutrients that are believed to help fight various cancers. Among them, cancer of the prostate, bladder, breast and colon.

A pretty good bargain for food on the cheap which, as one story has it, was fed to laborers to keep them healthy as they built the Great Wall of China.

If you are averse to eating this nutritious vegetable, you can avail yourself of its healthful benefits by taking cabbage pills which have been shown to be effective.

May the Cartier tradition — Louis’s and Jacques’s be yours in good health for a great, many sparkling years.
