Cranberry Walnut Chicken Salad
Eat Your Way Fit
We are back to recipes this week with this simple salad that you can enjoy with bread, a wrap or on a bed of greens. I’m always trying to add in those greens wherever I can!
It’s so important that our meals are tasty and satisfying. Diets just don’t work. I’ve tried a lot of them – some as an experiment more than anything and it would always leave me craving the one food that was off limits. So my message to you is to not chase diets that cut out food groups or drastically cut your calories.
The path of healthy is a lifestyle and crazy diets just don’t work in the long run. Think marathon – not sprint. Whenever I feel like I need little kickstart I love to do a healthy grocery haul. It motivates me to each all the fruit and veggies! And delicious little recipes like this cranberry walnut chicken salad.
Quick Meals for the Win
Things have been a little all over the place the past few weeks at the Delaney/Frost residence. We moved last week and no matter how many times I do it – I swear I always forget how much work it can be! Scott’s parents came down to Austin to visit and their help was amazing for us. Next month I’m traveling to NJ to see my family. No matter how you are experiencing the holidays the calendar is filling up for all of us. We are some super busy babes right now!
The best way to stay on track is to find easy meals we can enjoy that take minimal preparation. This cranberry walnut chicken salad is sure to be one of them!
