Hummus Chicken Salad…

 
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…
 
In the words of the Beatles tune from 1967 Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band..
 
 Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends
