I was so inspired last week when I was chatting with Georgia Saler. Her passion for clean food is something we can all benefit from. It’s a simple idea, to cut all processed food from our lives, but the lifestyle change is where we all fall short. We chatted a lot about this during our time together on This Is Food, and Georgia has been helping people change their lifestyle for over two decades now. She fell into the lifestyle of eating clean at a young age in her grandmother’s kitchen. Georgia was hooked as a young girl and today has grown a business to help change the lives of others. Vitality Nutrition and Wellness is located in Linwood, NJ but she can help you no matter where you live through online services.
It was so nice to sit and chat with Georgia, her energy is calming, she is encouraging and just full of good vibes. Georgia is not only a dietitian but a yoga instructor too. She believes feeding the body is feeding the soul. We want to nourish both of those things, don’t we!? It really does make sense. After a weekend of eating out or picking on foods that aren’t the best choices, I don’t feel well. I’m physically tired and mentally exhausted. So, why do we choose to do that to ourselves? Convenience? Ignorance? Or do we just not care? Whatever the reason, Georgia inspired me, even more so than I already am, that eating clean can be really simple.
She shared a Fall Harvest Slaw with us. Georgia explained on the show that she likes to link affirmations with her recipes. She gave this slaw, “I am luscious.” She wanted to remind us that we can use the base of this slaw recipe and then interchange it with how we are feeling, or what we have on hand if not the original ingredients. Check out our episode together by clicking here to hear more of Georgias’ views and watch her make this slaw.
Fall Harvest Slaw
Ingredients (for the base)
- 2 cups grated cabbage
- 1/4 cup grated carrots
- 1-2 fresh limes, according to size and taste, juiced
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- Salt to taste
- Mix ingredients together in large bowl.
Ingredients (for the comasio)
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- pinch of chile powder
- Place ingredients in a mortar and pestle and grind until your desired consistency.
- Mix your comasio in with your base right before you are ready to serve.
This slaw can be left in the fridge for up to 3 days. I used black sesame seeds when I made my slaw, I liked the color contrast they presented in the slaw. Also, I only used one lime, but you can use up to two! I also used Organic Pepitas as my pumpkin seed, which technically is just the pumpkin seed without the shell. I really enjoyed this slaw, I’m a huge fan of pepitas and it was a great side dish to have for dinner. This can also be a great dish to bring to a party. It’s easy to eat and inexpensive to make. I hope you like it!
