A mixture of your favorite, unsalted nuts and dried cranberries.

Today’s Trail Mix includes almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries. This mix is a wonderful, easy-to-pack snack to carry through the day, for a munch full of protein and flavor. If you can eat nuts, create a mix of your favorite flavors. Try to use unsalted nuts to limit daily salt intake.

Another way to enjoy a healthy Trail Mix is to include in a fresh salad to add more crunch and protein.

Lunch today is Chicken Salad on a toasted English Muffin, whole wheat, of course. What makes this chicken salad a little more special? Cut vegetables, spicy mayo and pumpkin seeds are mixed all together. I also added some diced avocado to enhance a creamy texture to this chicken salad.

The preparation of this hearty meal started with using a left over baked chicken breast, a split, bone-in with skin on chicken breast from dinner the evening before. I was able to increase the amount of this chicken salad by cutting vegetables, dicing avocado and adding pumpkin seeds. Rounding out lunch with a toasted English Muffin to support this loaded chicken salad and/or making lettuce boats to eliminate the carb, made this lunch extra special and very filling.

i enjoy creating meals using left over food from the refrigerator to keep the cost of meal prep more reasonable and challenge myself to prepare flavorful, healthy options.

Two cutting boards, one for cutting cooked chicken and one for cutting vegetables on.
