Tex Mex Coleslaw

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. These recipes are for those of us with allergies or autoimmune illnesses and those who love us.

I have been writing recipes for a while. I use to think all my recipes were from scratch until I went grain free I didn’t really know what from scratch meant. I have found that most items in the grocery store are full of ingredients that I can’t have. If I want to eat it I almost always have to make it from scratch. It reminds me when I used to make bread and would grind my own wheat. Boy, that is one thing I sure miss is all the different types of bread.

I am always trying to create side dishes to go with some of my dinner recipes. I love food and variety. I really enjoy Tex Mex food and slightly spicy food. I really wanted a side dish to go with my Fajitas and refined black beans. I can’t do rice as it is a grain. Inspiration hit and I thought why not a spicy coleslaw. Then it was a matter of making the dressing for the coleslaw. My new favorite spice is my powdered Jalapeno so I decided I wanted to use a little of that. I have also noticed at the Mexican restaurants here locally that they use radishes in almost every dish. So I thought it would add a nice little heat as well as flavor. Just an FYI if you let this set for a day or so the heat intensifies.

For those who read my blog and my recipes, I hope that you have a wonderful day and or night. If you know someone who experiences depression let them know you are glad they are still here. Let them know you think they are amazing. For those whom I don’t know but experience depression. I am glad you are here.
