Coleslaw – Phase 1 Harcombe Friendly


This is a really easy, Harcombe friendly, PH1 recipe for a delicious coleslaw.
The ingredient quantities are not fixed and you should play around with them to suit your own taste.
We’ve included red cabbage in this version but we actually prefer it without (generates less wind without!). For a cabbage free version, leave the cabbage out and add equal quantities of carrot and celeriac

250 ml Natural live yoghurt (NLY)
1 large teaspoon of dijon mustard
Freshly ground pepper
Big pinch of sea salt
1/2 red onion, finely chopped.
1 large Carrot, grated,
1/4 celeriac, grated and equal in volume to the large carrot
1/4 red cabbage, finely chopped

For a red cabbage free version, replace the vegetables as follows:
1 red onion, finely chopped.
2 large Carrot, grated,
1/2 celeriac, grated and equal in volume to the large carrot

1. Put the NLY, mustard, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl and stir to a smooth consistency.
2. Add all the chopped and grated vegetables and stir well.
3. Serve as desired.

    If you stay on Phase 1 for a number of weeks I thought I had read you can add few more foods but I can’t find it now. Have I dreamt it ?

      Phase 1 is Phase 1. Some people have ‘developed’ a Ph1.5 to suit their needs that adds a few Ph2 items to give them more flexibility, but only when they are sure that they have cravings under control.

    Hi. I am already within a normal weight range (176cm, 70kg). Will phase 1 work for me too? I want to lose 5kg to get back into the shape I was last summer. Do you recommend this diet for me?

      While we can’t say specifically from the information you’ve shared, why not give it a go? Phase 1 is short enough to be quite manageable.

    Hi there, starting my 3rd 5day plan on phase 1, I’ve lost 8 pounds so far I’m still having rice with fish meat can I keep on this plan till my hols in Sept ? Or should I start the 2nd phase of phase 1 and not mix the rice with the fats? X

      If you’re comfortable on Ph1, you can stay on it for as long as you like. Many do a number of weeks.

    Hi. Can we have an indication of number of servings the recipe allows?

    Is it just for one?

    Both my wife and I are on phase 1.

    It says we dont worry about mixing carbs with fat in Phase 1? I’m confused can you give me an example please?
    Best regards

    me again, just another query I notice in the Phase one friendly coleslaw dressing there is dijon mustard? This has vinegar in it doesn’t it?


    • avatar Andy

      There’s such a tiny amount that each person will only consume the tiniest amount. If you’re worried, use mustard powder.

    Hi we are ust embarking this week on phase 1 – my understanding is that we can eat our rice allowance with anything in phase one is that correct? I am a tad confused as I have just read a prima article and I got the impression from the included recipes that even in phase ! the rice should only be eaten with veggies. thanks Carole

    Hi I’m new to this diet just started today and was wondering if I can have the coleslaw with the tuna salad – thanks
