Autumnal Slaw with Apples and Pecans - The Kraddick Kitchen

Hello November!

Halloween is over and I know most people have immediately moved on to Christmas, but first, Thanksgiving! I know, Thanksgiving doesn’t get much love but I’m trying to stay on the healthy eating path, so this year, I’m planning ahead!

Y’all know I’ve been doing the cryotherapy thing for a while now (obsessed.) and through cryo, my friend Kelly introduced me to Cassie Green. Cassie is a health coach and knows all things nutrition! I think one of the hardest things about staying on a good eating plan is constantly coming up with new and yummy things to eat. I started picking Cassie’s brain on some nutrition stuff and then just invited her over to The Kraddick Kitchen so she could give me a few ideas.

I love a good Friendsgiving but I hate to be that person who can’t eat anything because “I’m on a diet”. So Cassie shared a few recipes that are healthy and tasty and the best part is you can enjoy them without the guilt!

I’ll be sharing a few recipes over the next couple of weeks, so make sure to check back or even better, sign up for my newsletter! You don’t want to miss out on things like this yummy slaw!
