Get ready for a burst of freshness with my Everyday Veggie Slaw! Packed with a mix of colourful, crunchy veggies, it tastes great and it is also a powerhouse of vitamins, antioxidants, and fibre.
Your gut will love this salad because it’s loaded with fiber, plus, the mix of colourful veggies brings a party of nutrients that your gut will appreciate for overall well-being and a happy, balanced vibe!
Adding to the goodness, cabbage, a star ingredient in this slaw, is rich in nutrients like vitamin C, K, and folate, known to support immune health, bone strength, and overall well-being. Cruciferous veggies, including cabbage, have also been linked to hormone balance, containing compounds that may help stabilise hormone levels and promote hormonal health.
Why not prep a few dressings ahead to mix and match? I love these!
For an extra boost, choose organic veggies. They’re not only free from pesticides and chemicals but also ensure that you’re getting the pure, unadulterated goodness of nature.
Because my veggies are organic, I prefer not to peel them, maximizing the nutritional benefits found in the skin.
Consider joining the organic veg box movement to bring a variety of fresh, seasonal produce straight to your doorstep. Supporting local, organic farms not only promotes sustainability but also introduces you to a diverse array of vegetables.
I LOVE to support the following farmers and businesses supporting small scale farmers.
My slaw is the perfect canvas for using ANY veggies in your organic veg box. Simply chop and change the veggies based on what’s delivered, turning each box into a colourful masterpiece. It’s a flexible and delicious way to embrace the goodness of the season while supporting local farmers.
Simply keep the slaw in the fridge for up to a week and start any meal the right way by adding some fibre and nutrients!
