Diet tip of the day: Superfood kale slaw recipe for weight loss

I have lost 100 pounds using  a variety of diet tips. Some of my favorite weight loss tricks are food swaps. I trade fatty, sugary, salty, junky ingredients for healthier, low-calorie ones. For example, I adore pasta and potato salads and cole slaw. But made the usual way, sloppy with mayo, sugar, etc., they are calorie-bombs. So here's a to-die-for cole slaw recipe you could literally live on. It's vegan, full of superfoods and protein, diabetic, bad fat-free, ketogenic (high in good fatty acids), paleo, low in sodium, sugarfree and a meal in itself. Oh and it's super cheap to make.
<----It's pretty too--see the picture! (Those aren't bugs, lol, but seeds)

SUPERFOOD KALE SLAW BOWL

chopped kale with stems removed

coarsely grated carrots

chopped green and purple cabbage

cubed salad cucumbers (much tastier than other cukes)

chopped zucchini

sliced grape tomatoes

cashews and/or walnuts and/or almonds

pumpkin seeds

milled flaxseed

chia seeds

unsweetened dried strawberries, cranberries or blueberries

apple cider, acai or pomegranate vinegar

whole seed, Dijon or horseradish mustard

lemon juice and zest

100% juice, raw honey (omit if making vegan) or blue agave syrup (optional)

Chop, slice, toss ingredients, season to taste with vinegar, mustard juice or honey, and enjoy.

This kale slaw is sweet enough for me without any honey or juice. But you may like it sweeter. Go easy on the juice and dried fruit as they are full of sugar and will spike glucose levels.
