Toasted Fennel and Carrot Slaw from Healthful Pursuit

Today please welcome Leanne from Healthful Pursuit!


Some of you may recognize Leanne’s name from the “Six Degrees” post I did last year about her ebook, Christmas Dessert Freedom, when I posted these amazing Cocoa Caramel Bars:

grain-free, candida diet, vegan, sugar-free cocoa caramel bars recipe on

Obviously, the goodies in the ebook are suitable for any time, not just Christmas. 😉

Leanne’s blog is filled with information and advice about how to live well on a whole-foods diet.  Her approach, while it incorporates animal foods as well as some vegan recipes, is similar to mine in that she prefers to use foods to obtain–and maintain–good health, rather than chemicals or anything artificial. Some of my favorites on Leanne’s blog include her Gingerbread Quinoa Breakfast Cookies, Rockin’ Roots Warmed Kale Salad, Vegan Cheez Whiz, and the popular Vegan and Gluten-Free “Twix” Bars.

Leanne has also written about her own journey to health and the kind of diet that has worked best for her. And, as you can see, she’s a whiz when it comes to creating delicious grain-free desserts. Learn more about her dessert cookbooks and other ebooks here, and get an inside peek at her upcoming ebook, Juices, Smoothies and Cleanses, here.

Today, Leanne shares a savory recipe. It’s simple, beautiful, and I bet it tastes delicious. Thanks so much, Leanne!

Thanks for the sweet introduction, Ricki 😉

As a Holistic Nutritionist, I am often asked, “What’s the easiest thing I can do to improve my health?”

To which I always, always answer, “Juices, smoothies and cleansing!”

I have used the power of juicing, smoothies and cleansing to become the radiant woman I am today. I have a life I love, an eating style that works for me, and a body I now respect. I owe this magnificence to 10 years of whole foods livin’, nutrient-dense juices, fiber-packed smoothies and ultra-awesome cleanses.

Just last week, I announced that I was working on a new cookbook dedicated to juices, smoothies and cleansing. To amp up excitement and celebrate all things cleansing, I’ll be sharing many recipes on that support a safe transition into and out of a juice cleanse program.

This slaw? Is one of those recipes. And you’re the first ones to see it!

  1. I’ve been in a cooking rut this winter. Thanks for the inspiration! I love fennel, so I’m sure this slaw is right up my alley. Thanks, Leanne!

  2. This looks amazing! I am a huge fan of any type of slaw but I’ve never tried one with fennel. Leanne’s recipes always rock so I can’t wait to give this one a try!

  3. Fennel is sadly overlooked and underrated! I love it myself, and yet don’t buy it often because the kids aren’t big fans. My very fave way is to have it roasted, but this salad looks just my thing!

  4. I especially love this because I can actually eat it on my new diet, minus the sea salt! Great recipe!

  5. I love fennel – my mom always grows a bunch in her garden and I always benefit! like Dreena, I love roasted fennel, and adding it to fresh juice. This looks like a perfect re-entry after a cleanse!

  6. I love fennel seeds but am still shy of raw fennel but I think it I could eat it any way it would be in a slaw where it is mixed up with other vegies – this sounds really interesting and definitely a good one to challenge myself on raw fennel

  7. I love the simplicity of this recipe – so perfect for spring! Leanne’s recipes always look amazing. Just pinned!
