½ head green cabbage, shredded
2 medium carrots, shredded
½ small red onion, sliced thinly into strips
½ cup chopped Italian parsley
1-cup coconut milk
1 tsp. arrowroot powder to thicken (if needed)
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon celery seed
Dash of cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Place the first four ingredients into a bowl and toss. Blend coconut milk and arrowroot. Add seasonings and lime juice. Blend. Pour over cabbage mixture. Toss and enjoy.
Optional: Add a little stevia if you want the slaw a bit sweeter. Also, chilling this recipe and letting it sit makes the flavors blend even better.
Notes: You can make fresh coconut milk by blending the coconut water and meat of a Thai coconut in a blender. However, good quality canned coconut milk is just fine!
What does Alkalarian mean? Alkalarian diets substitute acidic food options such as high-fat dairy products, fatty meats and refined grains for simple carbohydrates, and high-fiber fruits and vegetables. Alkaline diet foods provide the body with an array of nutrients. The Alkalarian diet regulates food intake using a chemical pH formula, which calculates the concentrations of hydrogen ions in urine after food has been metabolized, with alkaline foods creating an alkaline ash. A major premise of the diet is that foods high in acid are responsible for allergies, fatigue and other health problems.
