Delicious. Time Saving. Creative. Healthy. What more could you ask for?
The most common struggle I hear from my Health Coaching clients is that they don’t have time to incorporate more healthy foods into their diet. In the healthy cooking workshops that I teach I often hear, “salad is boring and I don’t know what else to make.” I actually think the number one reason people don’t focus more on healthy food is because they haven’t yet embraced the role food plays in their well being. If we don’t change our minds about the effect that food has on our health, it’s hard to change our habits. I know from experience, it takes awhile for folks to wrap their arms around that one! So while you’re chewing on that, why not whip up a batch of this slaw to solve a few of those struggles.
I’m all about delicious and beautiful food that, oh by the way, happens to be healthy! I love to experiment with vegetables, finding new and different ways to use them that not only take on those traits, but also are versatile in their use once they are made. Anything that will stay good….maybe even become enhanced by sitting in the fridge for a day or two, and make for a good snack or the start of a new and different meal becomes a staple in our house. Cooking once to eat twice (or maybe 3 or 4 times) is one way to minimize the time you spend preparing food.
This recipe for Brussels Sprouts Slaw is a crowd pleaser, even for those who say they don’t do vegetables. Make extra because you’ll want to snack on this, scramble it up with some eggs, throw it on top of your favorite tacos and have it again tomorrow with some nuts thrown on top.
