Since I'm anticipating warmer weather and Spring, I wanted to share a couple of things that I've been loving lately...mainly SALAD! Isn't it funny how the body works? In the Fall, I'm definitely craving soup and stews but at this point, I'm starting to crave fresh salads, salsa and just in general, healthier food, fresher food. This week I found these delicious pea sprouts which I've never had before and have been absolutely loving them! They're so easy to throw on top of a salad or sandwich and I love the taste and crunchy texture. I'm not huge meat eater, in fact I don't eat too much but I've been trying to increase my protein a bit with local, boneless chicken breast. My favorite salad lately has been delicious greens with a bit of chicken topped with avocado. Avocado just seems to make my day happier, I feel more full and satisfied.
Here are the sprouts - so good!This is the chicken I've been eating a top my salads. So EASY and so good! We usually have fajitas for dinner one night and the leftovers are what I enjoy during the week.
Sometimes I've eaten a salad topped with an egg too, which is satisfying and good...if you're into eggs!
I've also started to replace my mid afternoon pick me up with Herbal Coffee. I first learned about herbal coffee through Healthnut Nutrition. Which is a great resource when you're looking for new recipes and healthy eating. Nikole seems down to earth and realistic about her approach to food. Be sure to check her out if you haven't already! Here's the coffee, I got mine on Amazon.
I hope you are all off to a fabulous weekend! TGIF from here!
