I was somewhere around ten years old when I became the high-maintenance, picky-eating, no-mayo girl I am today.

I blame my Dad because it’s 100% his fault I don’t trust restaurants or my husband when it comes to adding (or leaving out) the mayonnaise.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve expressed my passionate hatred for mayo I’d be doing lunch with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

I remember the night my mayo-game changed forever. My Dad and I were outside enjoying an unusually pleasant southern summer evening waiting for dinner: BLTs. Mom was in the kitchen, and when she asked how we wanted her to prepare our sandwiches, Dad took the opportunity to declare mayo to be gross. That’s all he said, and that’s all it took to change my palate- forever!

If You Love Mayo – Don’t Worry

Mayonnaise is low carb & perfectly acceptable on the keto diet & I’ve made 2 versions of this slaw – one with mayo & one without so nobody’s feelings get hurt!

Cabbage, Carbs & Keto

Enough about condiments.

Our main ingredient today is cabbage.

Cabbage is a low carb, keto-friendly vegetable that comes in all sorts of shapes & colors: red, purple, white & green.

All varieties of cabbage support healthy digestion & heart-health: lowers “bad” cholesterol (LDL) & may help lower blood pressure.

All while being super low carb & budget-friendly:)

Carbs In Cabbage Per Cup

  • Green or White Cabbage =  3 Net Carbs, 22 Calories
  • Red/Purple Cabbage = 4.7 Net Carbs, 28 Calories

2 Versions of Keto Coleslaw = A Lot Of Versatility

Feel free to take what you love about these recipes & make them your own! Use a variety of colors – mix & match spices – etc.

You’ll notice there are more ingredients in the “with mayo” version. I’ve found you can add a bit more & get away with it when you’re dealing with a creamy base.
