Slaw, salads, and carbs

SLAW

Always on the quest for yummy food as well good-for-you food I found this site which has amazing photos and recipes.

I tried a simplified version of the Roasted Sesame Winter Slaw and it’s pretty good- and only 3 ingredients! I used red cabbage, carrots and a yummy tahini sauce from Trader Joe’s.

While I do enjoy healthy and good-for-you foods, I also love carbs and I soo want to try this Easy Buffalo Chicken Stromboli. Maybe I can try it and work to make this recipe a little healthier…
