No Fat colorful Cole Slaw with Blanched Broccoli

Joanne Hendriksen


I am not particularly fond of broccoli but I know it's nutritional value so I try to snack on it. It helps to curb my hunger plus I feel good that I didn't grab salted chips, sugary cookies, or fattening snacks that don't satisfy. With them blanched you can use your imagination on ways to eat them. Today I added a few to my totally healthy no fat slaw recipe. Hope you will enjoy it.
