Skinny Slaw

imageimage[1]
A year or so ago, I was in the best shape of my life. I started boxing with my good friend Wally and eating really well. Around that time, my father also happened to be on a diet though his “life-style change” was entirely forced by my mother. So, every morning when I made my “clean” lunch to take with me to college, I prepared dad’s as well. This slaw which I’ve named “Skinny Slaw” merely to grab your attention so you click the link but also because I actually believe in its powers, is what my father and I ate for 2 months straight and it worked, we lost weight. Which is why you should totally try it. But for the record, your ass looks great in those jeans anyway xx

If anything’s going to get you through that upcoming hectic day of work deadlines/university exams/Boxing Day sales (it’s sooner than you think – get ready!) it’s this nutritionally substantial power slaw. A cross between a slaw and a waldorf, not only is this salad absolutely scrumptious, it is also packed with endless nutrients; no doubt your body will love you for it! The best part is, it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare! Incredible on its own, or great as a side dish. Nom nom nom enjoy!

1 packet of herb slaw (cos who can be bothered chopping these days?!)
1/2 cup raw walnut pieces
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 apple (diced medium)

juice of one lemon
zest of one lemon
1 tsp seeded mustard
1 tbsp olive oil

Mix both the salad and dressing ingredients together, separately, then combine the two and power on!
