Healthy coleslaw

This healthy coleslaw recipe is perfect for weight loss and for reduction of inflammation in your body.

How is it better than your basic creamy coleslaw?

Cabbage is a powerful healthy food, but what we eat it with matters just as much. Coleslaw dressing makes a huge difference!

  • Usual coleslaw dressing consists of mayonnaise and vegetable oil and provides unnecessary cholesterol, fat and animal protein that diminish health benefits of coleslaw.
  • Healthy coleslaw is made with coconut milk, an alkalizing anti-inflammatory source of healthy saturated fat (Yes, you need a little bit of saturated fat in your diet! It's better to get it without "free bonus" of cholesterol that all animal products come with)

Let's compare equal portions of basic coleslaw to healthy coleslaw.

Compare total calories and calories from fat. The difference is startling - the same portion of healthy coleslaw has only 1/2 of calories of the basic one, and zero cholesterol. Look how much more Iron, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C healthy coleslaw provides!
I compare weight of the portions for the simplicity - but our body doesn't care about weight, it cares about content of the calorie and amount of calories. Let's compare calorie to calorie- and we would notice even bigger difference. Let us divide basic coleslaw calories and vitamins content by half to compare content in 106 calories( 213 calories:2=106,5 calories, which is equal to calories from one portion of healthy coleslaw)

Healthy coleslaw

Adjusted from the "Ph Miracle for Weight Loss" program. Shredding green cabbage can be a chore if you don't have a Borner mandoline slicer. With it, the process turns into two minutes of joy.

  • 1/2 a head of green cabbage, shredded
  • 2 mediun carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 of a small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder to thicken (if necessary)
  • 1/2 tsp RealSalt or sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 2 tsp fresh coconut juice
  • a dash of cayenne pepper if desired
  • a bit of stevia for sweetness if desired.
  1. Toss cabbage, carrots, onion and parsley in the bowl.
  2. Blend the ingredients for the dressing and pour over the vegetables and herbs mixture. Toss.

This coleslaw tastes the best if chilled for several hours to allow tastes to blend.
