Peach & Blueberry Coleslaw Power Bowl
Peaches are in season right now. If you have yet to take advantage of their ripeness, this is the perfect recipe that will give you the antioxidants and power you need to stay energized throughout the day. Peaches are loaded with vitamin E and vitamin C, which can help promote healing and strengthen your immune system, while blueberries provide a robust dose of antioxidants.
If you are not a fan of peaches, you can always replace them with mangos in this recipe. For the herbs, feel free to use mint if you don’t like the taste of cilantro, or use both together to elevate the flavors. To make this coleslaw a full meal, just add protein! We recommend seasoned chicken thighs or grilled shrimp.
- The dressing calls for Paleo Dijon mustard, which we suggest making ahead to save on time. You can prep a whole batch of Paleo condiments over the weekend to have on hand throughout the week.
