Not only is this slaw over-the-top delicious....but it's packed with vitamins, nutrients and plenty of anti-oxidants that are soooooo good for your bod! This recipe is Vegan too!
I love this article on Avocado's alone. http://www.symptomfind.com/nutrition-supplements/health-benefits-of-avocados/
Who knew one little fruit could do so much! I eat at least 3-4 avocados each week, on salads, in smoothies or by the spoonful!
Broccoli contains a high amount of potassium, which helps maintain a healthy nervous system and optimal brain function, as well as promotes regular muscle growth......and you know what they say about apples.....an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Too many health benefits related to olive oil to mention.....So Here's the recipe. I eat this on fish tacos or as a light & simple side dish with almost anything!
2 Ripe Avocados
2 Cups Shredded Green Cabbage
1/4 Cup Shredded Purple Cabbage
1/4 Cup Shredded Carrot
1 Granny Smith Apple :) Shredded
1/4 Cup Shredded Broccoli Stems (Optional)
(Many Stores have Bagged Slaw already done...so if you want to speed this recipe up, buy two 10-12oz bags...throw into a bowl and start at step 2 below).
1 Lrg. Bunch Cilantro Leaves
1 Lrg. Clove Garlic
Juice of two limes or about 1/4 Cup Bottled Lime Juice
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or oild of your choice)
Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Shred cabbage, apple and broccoli into a large mixing bowl.
2. Peel Avocados, cube one of them, add cubes to slaw mixture.
