Why Our Version Stands Out

this delicious cabbage slaw will be s hit at your next cookout!

We pride ourselves on hooking you up with clean-eating recipes that put a skinny spin on your favorite dishes. Most coleslaw recipes call for heavy, high-fat ingredients that can break the calorie bank. We’ve ditched the waist-expanding members of your typical slaw like mayonnaise and sugar and subbed in cleaner alternatives. Greek yogurt delivers an irresistibly rich consistency, and it clocks in at a fraction of the calories of mayonnaise. Meanwhile, honey takes the place of white sugar, offering a handful of health benefits instead of empty calories.

Full of flavor and delightful, crunchy texture, our cabbage slaw recipe is bound to become a new Summer go-to!

This cleaned-up recipe boasts an impressive nutritional profile. It contains only 105 calories a serving, and our apple and red cabbage slaw will satisfy all your cravings without sabotaging the scale. The tangy side dish also delivers 4 grams of fiber per serving, meaning it’ll fill you up and curb cravings. Awesome!
