Apple Coleslaw

These fall/winter fruits and veg are a great source of fiber and vitamin C – just what every expectant mom needs to keep healthy during cold and flu season! In addition to helping to fight infection, both you and your baby need this vitamin daily as it is necessary for the body to make collagen,which is a component of cartilage, tendons, bones, and skin. Some studies suggest that higher levels of Vitamin C in your diet can help with baby mental development.

Ingredients
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 TBSP mustard – Dijon works nicely
2 TBSP olive oil
1/4 TSP salt and pepper
1 medium cabbage shredded – approx. 6 cups
1 cup shredded carrot – about 3 large ones
1 Granny Smith apple and 1 Red Delicious Apple cut into thin strips (not peeled)
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup unsalted nuts such as walnuts or almonds

In a small bowl mix vinegar, mustard, oil, salt and pepper.

In a large bowl combine all other ingredients and top with dressing. Allow salad to sit at least 30 minutes in the fridge before serving.
