Have you ever had a fat day? You know, one of those days that you feel fatter than you did the day before? Please say yes so I don’t feel like an idiot. Anyway, today was one of those days. It was also one of those days that I vowed to eat better, healthier, skinnier.
The weather man had forecast rain on Rohr Road. But I had vowed that it was going to be ‘clean up the yard’ day. After lying dormant for six months, my yard was looking more like Sanford And Sons place rather than Bellingrath Gardens. And since we had only 116 days until the wedding of the century was to be held her at the Rohr estate, I knew I had better get myself in gear…rain or shine.
After the caffeine kicked in, Cassady and I grabbed our rakes and got to work. With the music bumpin’ and the Oklahoma wind blowin’, we hurriedly raked leaves and pulled weeds hoping to beat the storms. As the first drops of rain began to fall, we loaded our last bag of leaves. We finished just in the nick of time!!
When it was all said and done, we were tired, dirty, wind-blown and wet… oh, and hungry. Very hungry. This brings us back full circle to my “fat day”. So whats a girl to do when she’s tired, hungry and feeling a little fluffier than usual? She treats her self to some avocado chicken salad in a pretty tea-cup. I had never even heard of avocado chicken salad till a year ago when I had some at a luncheon. I was instantly hooked.
Last month, during six weeks of the Daniel Plan at our church, I demonstrated to 150 people just how easy, delicious and healthy this recipe is. With only a few ingredients, this pretty treat can be whipped and enjoyed in no time.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 cups of shredded chicken (I used rotisserie chicken) but you could easily use boiled chicken breasts.
1-2 avocado, chopped (I used two)
a hand full of chopped cilantro (about 1/4 cup)
a couple of spoons of non-fat Greek yogurt (do this to taste or omit if you don’t like it)
a small handful chopped green onions (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Here’s how I did it:
Add all ingredients in a bowl and mash it with a fork. Taste it. See if it needs anything. More salt and pepper? More Greek yogurt? You could even add some walnuts, or a little chopped celery…whatever your little heart desires. I personally like it with a few chopped walnuts, but that’s just the way I roll 😉 .
I hope you’ll give this a try sometime. And remember, make it your own. Add what you love, put it in a pretty dish and pretend you’re a princess, or a Queen…or better yet, THE QUEEN.
Thanks for dropping by, thank you for your sweet comments and for those of you who share my posts…THANK YOU!
I love you more than peanut butter and honey on toast 😉
