The Best Paleo Coleslaw Ever

The Best Paleo Coleslaw Ever | Real Food RN

Potlucks are a common event here in Minnesota. Where there are potlucks, there is always a creamy coleslaw. I grew up eating the stuff all the time!

So, I came up with my own version that includes healthy homemade mayo and some extra ingredients to really make the flavor pop!

But, most of them still contained an egg or two. This is where chia seeds some in. [Read more…]
