cook. clean slaw

Out of all the ‘diets’ out there, the clean eating lifestyle is the most straightforward. Basically you eat food that is not processed,  not filled with fat or sugar, and is as natural as possible. It’s nothing fancy and new, in fact it’s pretty old school, which I love.

I want lunch recipes that I can make in bulk for the working week, are filling but don’t leave me feeling lethargic, and most importantly ones that I don’t feel disappointed with when I open my lunch container. IMG_7414Eating a salad can sound like a really healthy option, but there are often hidden ingredients  like sugar in the dressings which defeat the purpose. This coleslaw is clean, fresh, and easy to make.IMG_7403

  1. Grate or finely chop the green and purple cabbage, and grate the carrot

The greek yoghurt gives the slaw a creamy taste, and the dijon mustard helps to add a pop of flavour- just make sure you are choosing an organic option or one with no added sugar.

This coleslaw is delicious and crunchy, not to mention colourful, so it’s a really nice dish to serve to guests as well.
