Hi! I don’t know what that was… again with the jazz hands! So, I have been eating low carb for the last 10 years. Like, ages. Ever since I got ill. Healthy eating for me is pretty routine, it’s quite normal. Various people… mainly Clara… have said that even though they want to eat healthier, it’s quite hard to know what it is they should be eating, where they should be shopping, or even different switches. I don’t have time for half that stuff. Like a spiraliser makes everything look really pretty, but you could also just chop up some vegetables. So here is a recipe for a healthy, yummy coleslaw and afterwards I’ll give you all the tips on how not to get overwhelmed. I’m not kidding, it is ruddy delicious! But, it does have some ingredients that are potentially new to you, or things that you’re thinking ‘Oh my god, I’ll buy it one and then what? it’ll just sit in my cupboard forever and I’ll never use it and… what’s the point?’ Number 1. What the hell are those ingredients? So here is a list of things that you can use the sea condiment for instead: Seasoning salads, roast vegetables, soups, putting in some nice guacamole. Oooh, that’s a nice idea! On top of seafood or chicken works pretty good. Anything that needs a salty kind of covering. Next, linseeds! Also known as flaxseeds Er, they are a seed that is pretty much full of fibre, which is excellent. I use a mix of ground linseeds with whole linseeds and some chia seeds as well because I quite like those and also they swell up a lot when you add water, and then… Things that you can use linseeds for: Sprinkling on stuff! pretty much anything actually that you can sprinkle things on linseeds are good for. It can be a sweet thing, it can be a savoury chicken dish, fish, anything! So you can use it as a nice topping. Ah yes, it’s also a really good vegan substitute for eggs So if you need to make a cake for a vegan friend, it’s a really good substitute. Number 2. Where to I buy those? I personally buy my linseeds at Asda. Ocado, they sell them as well. My point is though that they’re not only sold in health food shops, they are also available in a wide range of supermarkets. I would advise buying them in bulk from a health food shop and then grinding them down yourself, because it is just so much cheaper and anything cheap is good. So, sea vegetable seasoning I have seen in various health food shops but I would say that it is pretty darn expensive, so I just buy it online. I personally like a shop called ‘Goodness Direct’ because they allow you to buy in bulk and they do not charge you for shipping if you spend over a certain amount. Number 3. I can’t find it. So if you can’t find mooli you can always use parsnip. Crunch raw stuff basically will do. Instead of linseeds I sometimes add nut butter, for a kind of nutty taste. Obviously you don’t have to use gluten free soy sauce, you could just use the regular kind if gluten is not a problem for you, you lucky bugger. Any mayo is pretty fine. It doesn’t have to be free range but do make sure that it has not got added sugars in because that’s just bad. If you don’t love the idea of seaweed in your salad then you can throw in a pinch of salt with some chopped basil and a little fish sauce maybe, for a bit of a kick. Number 4. How can I bulk this up? This recipe is excellent for a lunch box It goes really well with fish or with chicken. It could be a fillet of salmon or it could just be some tinned tuna. Veggie options will include adding some almonds or some seeds, or even just a variety of upping the nut butter, or maybe some chickpeas. Basically, it’s yummy and there are a whole load of options, because healthy eating doesn’t really need to be time consuming or expensive or any of that rubbish. This recipe is in fact one of the top five good looking but healthy things that I eat that are not cake! Subscribe for more cakes… and other recipes. Mainly cake.
