How to make creamy coleslaw | picnic ideas


I’m always looking for ways to add cruciferous veggies to our plates. Cabbage is packed fiber and antioxidants that help our body fight free radical dammage. I make mine with avocado mayo and tahini, it’s delicious! You can also try making a dairy free mayo using ‘soaked’ cashews (recipe below).

What are some of the health benefits of cabbage?

Cabbage is a low-calorie vegetable that’s rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

  • Red cabbage contains extra vitamin C and is a pretty and delicious additon to your salad.
  • Fermented cabbage (sauerkrait) is good for you! During the fermenting process it makes natural probiotics that nourish the bacteria in your gut. Those bacteria can help our bodies fight germs, absorb nutrients, and digest food. Kimchi is the spicier version of sauerkraut. You can find it in your market’s refrigerator section.
