This low-carb cilantro-lime slaw goes great with any BBQ dinner! It also is the perfect topping to burrito bowls, keto burgers, and will work as filling for keto tacos.

Bright colored veggies are so important to our healthy wellbeing. Vegetables with bright or deep pigments such as red cabbage contain phytonutrients that help counteract oxidative stress and slow down aging. That's why you should "eat the rainbow" and include a variety of keto-friendly foods in your diet.

Thank you for this great recipe. But if I may ask as you say and I quote
"Vegetables with bright or deep pigments such as red cabbage contain phytonutrients that help counteract oxidative stress and slow down aging."
How about a 65yrs old person will it have any effect?
I look forward to your response.
Thanks
