The nutrient-rich ingredients in this delicious slaw make it a smart choice for athletes. Brussels sprouts and blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants and phyto-nutrients, helping to support a strong immune system. Also, walnuts and canola oil are among the top 10 food sources of plant-based omega-3 fat, and may help protect the heart.
To thinly slice Brussels sprouts, put them in a food processor fitted with the slicing attachment or cut thinly with a knife as you would coleslaw.
