This whole eating healthier thing is a struggle in today’s fast- food pre-packaged eat on the go lifestyle most of us live. So when I find a web-site, internet article or health and nutrition blogger sharing a good idea I just have to share it. I know I am not the only person struggling with the concept of eating to live.
I have been following Michelle Myers on twitter for about a month. However, I had not visited her blog until she twitted about checking out the healthy recipes on her site. Well I jumped over there just as fast as my browser would go and lo and behold, She was true to her tweet.
I am learning that eating healthy does not require me to go without my favorite foods, it just requires a little recipe tweaking.
Here is a an old favorite with a new twist. I made it for lunch and it is delicious. If you try it you are sure to like it!
Hummus Chicken Salad
2 cups skinless boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup of hummus (use your favorite)
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 small apple, diced
1/4 dried cranberries (or fresh grapes)
pepper to taste
Thanks to Michelle and others like her, I will learn to eat to live instead of living to eat….I’ll Get By With a little help from my friends…
