lime ginger coleslaw

As a Naturopathic Doctor in Guelph, I am constantly talking to my patients about healthy eating habits. The most common concern that arises is time!  Work, meetings, emails, families,  where is the time to cook?

Eating healthy can be quick and easy, you just need to find the right recipes for the whole family to enjoy.  My family loves  Healthy Fish Tacos and I wanted a simply slaw to go with it.    I came across this delightful salad that’s perfect for summer.  This light healthy slaw is a great side for a BBQ or can be added as a side or a fixing in your next taco night.  It’s packed with flavour and sure to impress.

Short on time?  You can buy cabbage pre-cut in bags in the produce section which makes this salad quick, easy, delicious and healthy.  All my favourite things!!
