Tangy Coleslaw

Ok wow, what a simple easy peasy recipe I have for you today! But before I get to that, a lil confession, I briefly fell off the Whole30/Paleo reset wagon at our Melbourne Cup lunch this week. This was a paid for work function where we were entertaining clients so unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of control over the food. I did try to eat a light meal beforehand to stave off the hunger but that didn’t really help as I did consume some of the canapes and most weren’t gluten free (although they had an incredible salmon tartare of which I proceeded to shovel about 10 into my mouth!). The thing that I could have controlled but chose not to was my alcohol consumption, I slipped and had a few drinks throughout the day.

Ok so first, a bit of a confession, I totally fell off my wholefood/Paleo wagon whilst away on the honeymoon. I did try to stick relatively Gluten Free but there was a bit of dairy involved, a few sneaky breadrolls and far too much desert and cocktails. Although we had an absolute blast and I have no regrets, I did spend most of the week in a fair bit of stomach pain which really only cemented more in my head that paleo-lifestyle really is the way for me.
