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. Well, now that I’ve come clean to you all I do feel better about myself. I decided not to guilt/punish myself too much for the slip (trust me the lack of sleep from alcohol and stomach pains the next morning from the food were punishment enough), I still ate strict for breakfast and dinner that day and all the meals since.

Faux-Potato Salad

Well, Spring has definitely sprung here in Queensland and that means it’s time for my 3 favourite Bs… BBQs, Beaches and Beers!

Entertaining can sometimes be a bit tricky when you’re trying to lead more of a clean-eating style of life and one of my favourite salads to bring along to a family or friend’s get together used to be Potato salad. Of course this has meant that in the last year I have been reading lots of recipes and experimenting with different flavours to come up with an alternative to the traditional white Potato Salad. Although lots of Paleo-ites still eat white Potatoes, I personally find them very starchy and for me they are easy enough to avoid in my own cooking. I much prefer Sweet Potato or Pumpkin!
