Coleslaw is a great salad option. What I like about it mostly is that it won’t get soggy like romaine, green leaf and other softer lettuces. I can season and put dressing on it, store in the fridge and have a tasty salad immediately when I’m ready to eat. It’s very flexible I like to add broccoli, dried fruits,

apples and you can even add cooked bacon! See the recipe below for other add-in suggestions. Be creative and enjoy your REAL FOOD!

  • 3/4 cup broccoli stems
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 small red (or green) cabbage (or 1 1/2 – 2 cups)
  • juice of 1 whole lemon (or lime)
  • salt
  • pepper (and/or cayenne pepper)
  • 2 TBS vinegar (apple cider vinegar, preferably)
  • 2 TBS cashew butter (optional, for creamier version)
  • Fruit Add-Ins (I prefer this option in place of adding sugar. Yet, if you can tolerate honey – it would be good too.)
  • 1/2 mango
  • 1/2 green apple
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • Other possible options: sunflower seeds (or other nuts/seeds), cilantro, corn


  1. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and season with spices to your own tastes.
  2. Makes about 2 – 3 cups.
