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.

We had a midday flight so grabbed some lunch from the buffet, pretty much no Paleo options (or even gluten free) but I was disorganised and needed to eat so I grabbed some of the Thai Beef salad on offer… Boy was it tastey!
Any time I eat something non-Paleo that I love I am inspired to recreate and paleofy it so this was my mission the other night and I think I got all the dressing ratios just right, this dinner was delicious and filling and best of all quick to whip up! I have to admit that I did do a slightly non-Paleo version for hubby-to-be and heated some thin rice vermicelli noodles and added to his bowl. I personally don’t think the salad needed it but it made him happy so I couldn’t resist! Continue reading
