Coleslaw with raisins and walnuts – a delicious low-calorie lunch

Standard

ImageThis delicious salad doesn’t only have an amazing taste but is also a perfect low-calorie lunch or dinner option. It keeps you full for a long time due to raisins, walnuts and plain yogurt that goes into its composition. It is one of my most favorite recipes and it doesn’t involve any baking, cooking or temperature processing. Its fresh, raw and juicy!

List of ingredients:

– white cabbage

– carrots

– raisins

– walnuts

– plain yogurt

– ginger syrup

– 1 apple

How to prepare:

In order to prepare this salad you need to shred the carrots and the cabbage. Cut the apple into small cubes and mix them with shredded carrots and cabbage. Add the raisins and walnuts to the mixture. Use about 4 table-spoons of plain yogurt and 2 table-spoons of ginger syrup for the flavor. If you are the spicy type, I recommend using a bit of salt and pepper for more taste. DONE!

The main benefits of this salad:

Easy, convenient and delicious! A cup of this salad has only about 180 calories and I promise that it will keep you full for quite some time if you combine it with a cup of soup or a toast. You can have it as a snack in between your meals, or make it a full meal but making the portion bigger. Moreover, this salad doesn’t contain any unhealthy fats and very little added sugar (from ginger syrup and raisins). If you don’t like raisins, you can replace them with more types of nuts such as: almonds, macadamia or hazelnuts.
