Asian Slaw

Today concludes my 30 Days of Deeds project. So you know what that means… No more good-doing!

Just kidding.

For a refresher, the inspiration behind it was two-fold: I am so tired of all the hate going on in this country, and wanted to do my part to spread some love. Also, I tear up at literally every pay-it-forward human interest story. Truth.

I loved this undertaking. It was so enlightening of my own actions and general attitude toward others. I started to write down the one deed i did like a checklist; then I realized how belittling and pointless that was. If I wanted to change myself to be more helpful and loving, I couldn’t look at it as “well, I did my one good thing for the day, I’m done!”

Sometimes it was the same as other days: giving my spare change to folks on the street (this is Boston, there are a lot), bringing coworkers coffee, going out of my way to holding doors for others, refilling the coffee maker and ice trays at work, writing a thank-you note here and there.  I can safely say that I genuinely feel like it’s part of my nature now, and before it shamefully was not. I am so glad I did this, and encourage y’all to take this on. You will find yourself going out of your way to be more helpful, thankful, appreciative.. Even smiling more at others!
Why not do this?

And while you’re making all of these great choices, why not make a healthier, tastier slaw? This is one of my absolute favorites that I make every time the weather gets warm. Besides being healthy, it’s one of the easiest things you can make. It’s mayo-free, packs a ton of flavor, and super healthy. I get asked for this recipe all the time. Enjoy!
