So far, I've lost seven pounds. I'm not too frustrated, I guess, because this is a healthy way to lose it. I'm on my way, and by the end of the year, I hope to have completely reached my goal. That means I will have lost 54 pounds and likely 8-10 dress sizes. I'm embarrassed to admit that I have to lose THAT MUCH, but whatever. At least I'm doing something about it!
I have found that cabbage is an awesome diet aid. It is bulky, so it fills up your tummy. It's high in fiber. And it helps me drop the weight more easily.
For this recipe, I had some kale that I needed to use. Kale... Kale... cole slaw... KALE SLAW! So crunchy, and healthy, too, because I used my homemade mayo recipe. A great raw food, diet food, side dish, BBQ side, gluten-free, YUM!
2 cups kale, stemmed and finely chopped
2 cups red cabbage, finely shaved or sliced
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 celery heart (the inner stalks, including leaves), chopped
1 fresno pepper, seeded and diced
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 cup homemade mayo or more to taste (recipe below)
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
other herb or spice to taste (I used a Thai blend)
Combine and toss all ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 cup unrefined sunflower seed oil (or olive oil)
In a blender or food processor, blend egg, lemon juice, salt and pepper for about a minute. While processor is still running, stream oil until mayonnaise thickens. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate to set.
