Keto crack slaw takes 15 minutes from start to finish, and you can make it even faster with a prepackaged cole slaw mix instead of chopping your own cabbage.

Serve keto crack slaw with delicious drinks like a keto iced matcha latte or turmeric latte for a filling, high-fat dinner.

Note on ingredients: Fermented foods like coconut aminos are suspect on the Bulletproof Diet because they can increase levels of histamine — a chemical your body produces that can cause inflammation in excess. Read more about histamines and how to check your tolerance here. Avoid eating garlic often: It inhibits alpha brain waves, could affect your mood, and could be moldy. Cabbage can be moderately high in oxalates — a type of antinutrient that can cause muscle pain, kidney stones, or thyroid imbalances. To reduce oxalates, steam cabbage separately and drain cooking water before incorporating in this recipe.
