Tonight I found myself blog hopping and thinking about my own blog. I have blogged on and off for 5 years now (yikes!!). But like most bloggers, my motivation to blog consistently evs and flos (with a LOT of flooooo happening lately!!)
I found a great blog tonight (Eat Live More) tonight and saw that Ro is going to participate in an April blogging challenge called Blogging from A to Z. The idea is, you post every day in April (except Sunday) and each day represents a different letter of the alphabet (i.e. blog about Apples, Backpacking, Crafting, etc.)
I think this is just what I need to help me get back to my roots and renew my love for blogging!! Now, I’ve got to do some brainstorming, QUICK. I’d love to hear your ideas, send ‘em my way.
Mayonnaise based dressings can add a couple hundred calories to each serving, so a typical chicken salad sandwich can have up to 500 calories!! You could avoid it altogether or come up with a healthier concoction. Use a healthier mayo option and replace half of the recipe with non-fat greek togurt. You get the creaminess you crave without the added calories!
(Healthy) Chicken Salad
4 tbsp mayonnaise (I like to use Smart Balance Omega-3)
4 tbsp non-fat greek yogurt, plain
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dill
4 boneless chicken breast, cooked & chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 med. apple, chopped
1/2 cup red grapes, cut in half
1/3 cup dried craisins
1/4 cup diced pineapple
You can start with the base of sauce & chicken. Then use the fruits & veggies you have on hand. Serve it over salad greens, small roll/croissant, pita bread, etc. So yummy!! P.S. It’s best after the first day!
