When you’re avoiding grains, it’s common to find yourself in a side dish-rutt (I know this from experience!) Ours tend to be spinach, asparagus and green beans. And while the hubs makes an amazing simmered green beans dish I’ll share with you soon, even they can seem dull at times. So to shake things up a bit, I like to rotate in a raw dish that feels a lot more complicated than it is. A paleo, raw gluten and dairy-free coleslaw that doesn’t use an ounce of eggs or mayo, but has a delicious creamy and not-too-vinegary flavor.
If you don’t eat much cabbage, I would definitely encourage you to start slipping it in here and there. Some of the many health benefits of cabbage include ease of constipation, stomach ulcers, headaches, excess weight, skin disorders, eczema, jaundice, rheumatism, arthritis, gout, eye disorders, heart diseases, aging and Alzheimer’s disease. Pretty amazing, right?
What I love about this recipe is it also lets me sneak in some healthy carrots and apples, and since we julienne the veggies the kiddos don’t seem to notice that they’re eating something healthy. I love sneaky little tips! If you don’t yet have a julienne peeler, you can start off with a basic one from Oxo like this which we use. It’s perfect for slicing some veggies to sneak into salads and on top of roared fish or poultry dishes, pastas and more.
As for the recipe, here’s my simple and quick Raw, Paleo Coleslaw – enjoy!

Hi, I'm Jen, and I launched InspiredEats after being diagnosed with several food allergies, and battling auto-immune conditions including Hashimotos, Adrenal Fatigue, Pyroluria and vitamin deficiencies. I have overcome most all conditions by following the Paleo Diet. My hope is to help so many others like me who are suffering and don't understand how to heal. That's the meaning behind my message: Eat.Heal.Thrive.
