Ginger Coleslaw

This version of coleslaw is a lighter version from your standard coleslaw.  It is a great combination of flavors especially good paired with BBQ food or a fish dish.

  1. I will to try this. I have just kept away from Mayo. Thank you for all your email support, it means a lot to me. I really feel that this portion of you service has kept me on tract. In the past when I worked on losing weight, after I was down to my goal, It just turned around and the pounds started back up again. I sure you know this. But through your program I really see what I was doing wrong. The big “C” word-Carbs.
    Thank you for sharing your expertise with me, I am so humbled to know that you really care about peoples health.

  2. Dr. Gala,
    I love the article on inflammation, thanks to Sara I was recently diagnosed with lymphedema and probably lipedema. My CRP I think that’s the code for inflammation in my body is at a 9.4, again thanks to Sarah’s thoroughness. I need to get very serious about getting my inflammation under control. I have moved from Eagle Point and I’m now in a smaller mobile home in Medford.

    I am pretty inactive do to my post-polio syndrome and lymphedema, they both cause me great fatigue and trouble walking. I don’t know if I would have to come out to Eagle Point or Medford for classes but I need to learn more about I’m assuming the Paleo Diet. I pretty much stuck to it for over a year and didn’t see a great difference, it may have been because I had trouble standing long enough to prepare food. I’m going back on Paleo as well as I can. Now that I live in Medford I can call in my grocery order to Fred Meyers and drive over with my handicap van and they will load my food into it, my biggest problem is getting it in the house but I seem to manage.

    My biggest Vice is microwaving popcorn in a tablespoon or less of coconut oil, and using some non salt seasoning on it. It fills me up and there are about a hundred and twenty calories plus the calories from the coconut oil in what I am consuming. I recently tried Weight Watchers but that was a complete mess, so I no I need to go back to paleo. Your articles are truly helpful and your office staff has been of great help to me.

    I am wondering what your advice would be conquering lymphedema and they say the lipedema can only be eliminated through liposuction. I need to do what I can myself at age 76 to help me have more vitality in the years I have left on this Earth. I truly admire the love you have for your mother and your devotion to helping others game Better Health. If it had not been for Sarah I would have no idea I had been living with lipedema for the past 20 or 30 years, yet getting in to see a specialist is not the easiest thing to do. I have an appointment the 1st of October to see Dr Karen Herbst in Tucson Arizona. She does have a diet that I just found it she calls the RAD diet that I’m going to try to stick to if I can just find the foods suggested and get to the grocery store as well as prepare them.

    Thank you for your dedication to help people better their lives, if you have any words of wisdom for me I would appreciate it.
