Broccoslaw with grilled chicken provides a solid punch of satiety balanced with vitamins and minerals from the veggies to add some variety and extra flavour while keeping carbs and fat low.
Chicken provides the majority of the energy and brings heaps of protein along with vitamins B3, B5 and B6 as well as choline, potassium, iron, selenium and zinc. The broccoli, cabbage and carrot fill in the folate, potassium, vitamins A, C and K1.
