After hours and hours of perusing all things Pinterest, I have decided to broaden my food recipe library. While still trying to be mindful of health I have decided to stop searching for only ‘healthy’ meals and looking for regular dinner meals (and then doctoring them up to be healthier.)
While I wouldn’t describe myself as an Italian food lover, my heart does beat a little quicker for a good chicken parmesan. I added it to my ‘FOOOD’ Pinterest board (found HERE).
The recipe itself is considered ‘healthy,’ but I cut back even more on the cheese. Also, my amazing friend makes his own marinara sauce, so I used that instead of store-bought.
Some people put their chicken over whole wheat pasta or even rice, we’ve opted to just eat ours plain with side salads and green beans. There aren’t many ingredients (which is something I look for), it’s fairly healthy, something different, and full of flavor. Definitely one you should check out!
But wait, there’s more!!
Date night this past weekend consisted of eating our weight in chips and salsa, so for dinner the next night I decided to make grilled chicken salad but fancy it up with some extra toppings. Oh. Em. Gee.
(Side note: I love salads, but I even surprised myself with this one.)
Cucumbers, celery, snow peas, carrots, avocado, yellow and orange sweet peppers, and topped with chicken. Not pictured a little bit of sharp cheddar and organic ranch dressing. Holy tastebuds. I was salivating over this salad, even while I was eating it! I tossed the chicken in a little bit of salt and pepper before grilling, and simply washed and cut all the vegetables. Super simple.
Even my husband was okay with eating a salad for dinner; so that’s a win.
The next cooking chapter will be dedicated entirely to snacking, practically one of my love languages. Stay tuned, readers!
