Navratri Special Low Carb Coleslaw Recipe


Navratri Special Low Carb Coleslaw Recipe

Like every year this year too I am fasting during Navratri. Nine days of self control and clean eating. Since I don’t eat any grains and even those Kuttu Atta goodies with carb loaded potatoes and Sago so its important for me to eat something filling yet healthy. As we all know by now that staying very low carb is not possible on a vegetarian diet, so Navratri time can be very easily made into low calorie time. Still I manage to go as low as possible on carbs.

So last night to break my fast this is what I prepared.

Well, my recipe is never complete without presenting Nutrition Count of it. So here is the Nutrition Data for my Navratri Special Coleslaw.

easy coleslaw for Navratri

So as you too can analyse that it is a bit higher on carbs but very low on fats and good enough with fiber content. In fact on second thoughts, when you are fasting 26-7=19 gm carbs in a complete meal is not that bad. Isn’t it? And yes let me tell you, this one serving was just TOOOO much with a glass of butter milk made with two tsp of curd.  🙂 One last thing to be added is that its a wonderful snack for Diabetics too.

Are you going to make this easy Coleslaw during Navratri Fast?

      LOL…. I wish I had not added spinach puree to it as it made the bright colour of salad muddy… but then taste and looks always come second to the health factor. Isn’t it???

  1. Dear Tommy,Hi! I am eating some cehsee (1-2 oz. a day) and 2-3 Tbsp of heavy cream per day. (I am measuring and calculating my food so that I know what is working or not working). Mostly I have eggs, meat, and butter, and vegies. I have also added coconut oil. I am also trying coffee with grass-fed butter and coconut oil. Some nuts, but I am aware of their downfall (too many = too many carbs).I just started experimenting with muffin in a cup (flax seed) as well as oopsie bread.I do use protein powder, for shakes with heavy cream or for a pancake recipe (eat with butter and Walden Farms pancake syrup). The protein power is low carb only 2 per serving.No fruit. Vegies broccoli, zucchini, dai kon radish (low carb potato substitute), cauliflower (ditto), sometimes tomato, cucumber. Salads with mayonnaise. I use Stevia for a sweetener straight, not cut with the non-sugar sugars , Torani syrups and saccharin. I was following the advice from Drs. Eades. I tried their middle age protein power fast cream/protein powder/flavor. 3 shakes and one meal, for 2 weeks then 2 weeks of meat based meals. I liked the program, but ended up eating too much protein . I have read and now understand, too much protein can be utilized by the body like carbs. So I didn’t lose weight or at least, I couldn’t maintain the program.I drink mineral waters, flat water and coffee/tea (with heavy cream or oils). I hate drinking water. However, when I was successful in weight loss before, water was key. My meal plan today is 74% fat, 20% protein and 6% carbs. I little low perhaps on the carbs, and I am feeling it.Any and all advice is welcome!! Thanks,N.
