Who doesn't love some sweet coleslaw at a BBQ on a hot summer day? A few years ago, my husband would have said he didn't, but today, he begs me to make my sweet coleslaw recipe. I started making my own coleslaw because, as much as I love coleslaw, unfortunately, store-bought coleslaw is often filled with preservatives that are not healthy to consume.

For instance, store-bought coleslaw is typically made from traditional dairy mayonnaise and dairy milk. Approximately 30 million to 50 million Americans are lactose intolerant, including up to 75 percent of African Americans and American Indians and 90 percent of Asian Americans, myself included. That's not even counting that traditional dairy is linked to increased risk of broken bones, diabetes, ovarian cancer, antibiotic resistance, and is brimming with saturated fat, somatic cells (pus), and hormones.
