Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared a delicious shrimp salad recipe with you in an effort to offer you easy lunch recipes you can bring from home. I heard from a few of you that you tried it and loved it! I am so glad to hear it. As these viewers found out, it is easy and cost effective to bring lunch from home. Not to mention the fact that bringing lunches can help you stay true to your health goals.
Well, in today’s video I am going to share one of my favorite salad recipes that is easily made and can be enjoyed as a super healthy lunch! It is the antioxidant-rich Chicken Salad.
Made with super-healthy red cabbage, carrots, cilantro, pumpkin seeds and other wholesome ingredients, this salad is a powerhouse of nutrition to keep your immune system in shape. It’s got nutrients to help prevent breast cancer, boost white blood cell production and also delivers tons of carotenoids to help you make more vitamin A, an essential nutrient for your skin, eyes and general well-being.
Check out the recipe and see what you think. Then give it a try and let me know how you like it. I doubt you will be disappointed.
Have a great Monday everyone and I look forward to connecting with you again next week.
