Sunshine Slaw

No Comments

Don’t you just hate it when there is nothing green left in your fridge.  The broccoli is gone, there is no more lettuce, spinach, nothing!! OK, maybe it’s not exactly eaten… but maybe it went bad?!?!?

So, I wanted salad last night, but all that was in the produce drawer of my fridge was carrots.  I pulled outDr. Fuhrman’s Eat for health cookbook (the good Doctor that my dear husband fears I’ll run off with if I ever got to meet him) :)

I made his Sunshine Slaw.  It was delicious.  Two of my kids ate it.  TJ claimed “fullness” (his favorite excuse). He didn’t even want to try it.  I threatened with the famous.. “OK, so if you are full, you won’t get to choose a treat out of Grandma’s pig tonight (Grandma keeps a very large glass pig filled with candy and fruit snacks.  Each visit to Grandma’s house they get to choose something from the pig in exchange for a hug).  So he said fine, and he actually did NOT take anything from the pig.
