Conscious Coleslaw

Coleslaw is one of the most delicious ways to turn plain cabbage and shredded carrots into the fresh, moist and creamy side dish of your dreams. The traditional recipe calls for a hefty helping of mayo, which can be an issue for most people's macros.

This recipe switches out the cup of mayo for only 10 g and finds a way to keep the flavor and the consistency without the fat content! You can buy pre-chopped coleslaw mix from the grocery store or make it yourself from scratch. Either way the macros turn out the same! This photo uses Trader Joe's Organic Broccoli-slaw, but the recipe and macros are almost identical for any coleslaw vegetables.

Instructions

For a zesty edge, add shredded apple to the coleslaw!!! Just be sure to add them into the macronutrients.

Take this dish to the next potluck or serve on the side of some lean white meat (paired with a good pork chop is my favorite!)
