Confetti Cabbage Diet Recipe

A Low Calorie, Low Fat Slaw Recipe
This is our version of a tasty slaw - something that always hits the spot during those warmer months of the year as well as those warm summer days.
Grab the grill, put the slaw in the picnic basket and once you're at the picnic grounds - grill some lean chicken, pull out a loaf of whole grain bread and a flask of sugar free lemonade - oh man, are we living or what?
This dish transports well when the Miracle Whip isn't stirred in until just before serving.
Our secret ingredient is the use of pickle juice from Splenda based jarred pickles - which is totally optional.
Splenda or any sugar substitute can be used - or a teaspoon of granulated sugar. If a less sweet slaw is desired, simply omit.
Confetti Cabbage Ingredients
4 cups of grated cabbage - any color
1 carrot, grated
1/2 teaspoon of celery seed
1 Tablespoon of Pickle Juice - from Splenda-based pickles (optional)
Add any OR all of the following to your preference making sure to check calorie content before doing such: dried cranberries, golden raisins, dark raisins
2 Tablespoons of Kraft Miracle Whip Light Salad Dressing
salt, pepper if desired
So Easy to Prepare
Simply mix all of the above ingredients together. This is a very low calorie recipe.
Be sure to go light on the celery seed because too much can ruin the recipe. We suggest adding 1 Tablespoon of the dried fruit to the above recipe to keep calories in check.
Tips for Your Weight Loss Plan
When you're trying to lose unwanted fat keep in mind that the process requires time and a good strong dose of willpower. If you aren't in the mood to lose and have been ordered to do such - as in the event of medical reasons, it's going to be almost impossible to succeed.
On that note, if you have to lose - whether ordered by your doctor or simply because you want to achieve a healthier body, try to keep a positive outlook amid the process. While we can't enjoy full blown slaw with Mayo - we can enjoy a skinner version. While we need to keep fried chicken out of our plan - we can enjoy grilled. These little differences in the preparation stage add up to significant somethings where weight loss success is concerned.
