The coleslaw makes a nice side for grilled chicken. The coleslaw also holds well. Since you don’t any mayonnaise or sour cream, you can take this dish with you to a pot luck or family gathering and not worry about safety. The Stevia also helps with this concern.
Many people don’t like eating broccoli stems. Often, they just go to waste. Coleslaw is a great way to use up this part of the vegetable and stretch your budget. The new, subtle flavor boosts traditional cabbage dishes. Thanks to the combination of cabbages and hard vegetables, this is a pretty and tasty side.
While it is true that standard cabbage doesn’t require as strict a portion control as the kinds used here. Many dieters however will improve their chances of success by keeping variety in their menus. So simply follow the instructions in this, and the other hCG diet recipes, to stay on track.
