It’s been WAY too long- I apologize for not getting a new post out sooner, but I’ve been working very hard on my NEW, IMPROVED and EXCITING business that will be launched in the Fall!! I’m pumped to take this next step in my career and cannot wait to deliver some really useful, easy and fun services and resources to my clients and followers- hint- I will be focusing on MOMS!!
Oh, and a BIG THANK YOU to all of you who have helped me with my target market research! I really appreciate it! If you are a busy Mom (or expectant Mom) and you’re willing to take 10 minutes to fill out a short questionnaire please e-mail me at . I will send you a short questionnaire to fill out OR we can have a quick chat over the phone if that’s easier. This will help me tremendously with creating new great nutrition tools for YOU!! Stay tuned for more information as the Fall approaches. Yay!!
In the meantime, I have a couple of yummy, simple, healthy new recipes to share with you!!! I stole them from my friend Meghan- our sons were born within a week of each other and naturally, we’ve become quite tight over the past 9 months. Thanks Meg!
- 2 1/2 - 3 cups cooked chicken (1-2 breasts depending on the size). If you're time crunched: use low sodium canned chicken breast
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped apple
- 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp curry powder
- Boil the chicken for 35-40 minutes (place raw chicken breasts in boiling water and then turn down to a simmer for 40 minutes)
- Shred the chicken with two forks or in a small food chopper. Mix in all remaining ingredients.
- Top with delicious tomatoes and butter lettuce and have on multi-grain bread.
Takes delicious paired with fresh watermelon, mint and feta salad!
- 1 small or 1/2 large watermelon (cubed into bite sized cubes)
- 1 bunch of mint (I like tons of mint, but if you want a more subtle taste, don't put a whole bunch)
- 1/2 - 1 cup feta crumbled or cubed
- Marinate the watermelon with the mint over night or for a few hours. If you're time crunched: don't worry about the marinating - it will still be deelish!
- Add feta and mint and voila! Done!
This recipe is SO delicious. Watermelon is a sweet treat that packs quite a nutrition punch! It's a good source of potassium, vitamins A and C and provides some fibre and folate. Watermelon also contains high levels of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that has been linked to the reduced risk of some cancers. And because watermelon is about 92% water, eating watermelon is a perfect way to help rehydrate on those hot summer days (like today!).
