ABC Coleslaw (Apple Bean Cashew)

October 5, 2021
Hello beautiful people, today this recipe represents how I feel about life! I feel fresh, healthy, and full of positive emotions and this recipe is no different, it is natural, completely nourishing, and full of beautiful colors! My ABC Coleslaw salad will make you feel good too because you will feel the richness of nature inside and that will be reflected in your improved mood!

We are what we eat, feel, and do, and each of these factors is connected to each other. Our diet contributes directly to how we feel and, how we feel contributes to what we do. If we prepare and eat fresh, natural, and colorful foods every day, surely it will help balance our emotions and we will be more energized and focused.

The body needs raw vegetables on a daily basis to function at its best. Whether it is Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, this recipe is a perfect combination of good quality protein, fat, carbs, fibre, vitamins, and minerals, which we can offer our bodies any time of the year!

There are a few suggestions for this recipe that I would like to share. You can substitute the black beans for any kind of pulse, so you can use whichever you have at hand. For better texture and taste, crush salted cashew nuts and maybe use a few just for decoration. This way you will have a crunchy yummy experience in every bite!

You can improve the way that you feel by selecting the correct combination of ingredients in your recipes. Remember, you are the "creator" of your health, and I am a "creator" of easy, healthy, delicious, low cost and simple to make recipes, who also cares about your well-being!
