Apple Slaw Premium PD Recipe
Autumn offers us tart and sweet apples, packed with antioxidants and flavonols to protect our cells from oxidative damage. Apples contain the protective free-radical-fighting polyphenol quercetin to assists our body with cellular cleanup and renewal. Quercetin reduces inflammation, lowers risk of cancer, prevents neurological diseases, relieves allergy symptoms, and lowers blood pressure. Apples have been associated with keeping the doctor away because of beneficial effects on risk, markers, and etiology of cancer, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and Alzheimer’s disease. The answer to disease reversal and prevention is not knowing what we should do, it is applying it every day. I tossed this cruciferous slaw with a tangy sugar-free sweet dressing to eliminate the bitter flavor quercetin and sulforaphane can have. It is the start of apple and cabbage season, and since creating this recipe, we have consumed more protection in our daily diet than most people consume all year long. Incorporating protective fruit and vegetables into starch-based meals makes eating for optimal health sustainable, and also rewarding far beyond our wildest dreams.
