It’s not the salad that’s unhealthy, it’s what you put on it. Have you heard that saying before? This healthy coleslaw takes that notion to a whole other level!
Traditional coleslaw is made with mayonnaise and sugar, yikes! While this recipe has 14 grams of sugar per serving, the majority of that sugar comes from the carrots, apple and cranberries. It’s also where all the fiber comes from too! Remember, high fiber foods slow down the process of turning sugar into glucose, which helps to regulate spikes in blood sugar.
Additionally, cabbage is an excellent prebiotic. What are prebiotics you ask? Great question, prebiotics are fibers and natural sugars that feed the good bacteria in your gut. They help beneficial bacteria grow in the gut, and they work with probiotics, which are healthful bacteria or yeasts, to improve health.
