Avocado's and Apples

June 17, 2010 § Leave a comment

Look what I found!  Fruition Bars!  I’ve been searching high and low for these.  I had one before my workout this afternoon.  They are made with organic dates and oats.  Only 160 calories per bar!

Strawberry Fruition – one of the best bars I’ve eaten 🙂

Tonight’s dinner was all about avocados and apples

Avocado and Apple Chicken salad, that is

Tonight’s salad includes (yields about 6 cups):

  • 2 c. cooked skinless chicken cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 c. diced red apple
  • 1/2 c. thinly sliced celery
  • 1/4 c. lightly toasted pecans, coarsely chopped 
  • 1/2 c. flat leaf parsley (rough chop)
  • 1/4 c. red onion
  • 1 tbsp. fresh mint – chopped
  • 1 tbsp. jalapeno pepper – chopped 
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. olive oil 
  • 1 avocado
  • Mesclun greens
  • Salt to taste 

Combine all ingredients in a big ol’ bowl and serve over fresh greens!  If you are short on time, pick up a rotisserie chicken and remove the skin, easy peasy 🙂

Jo Ann’s molasses cookies for dessert! She is an amazing baker and cook.

She was nice enough to hand-deliver these babies to our doorstep.  I had 3!

Dinner was delicious and filled with lots of good fats, protein, veggies and fruit oh my!  In other news, my replacement phone has also arrived! Yippee!
