I have finished one whole week! Yippee! This morning I woke up with more energy than I have had in a long time. All day I was productive and happy! I danced and played with my toddler, cleaned the kitchen, mopped the floors, tried three new recipes, and pushed myself through an especially challenging CrossFit WOD. I am so glad I continued with my Whole30. And I hope this energy and motivation continues!
For lunch I made a Chicken Salad Over Greens with homemade mayonnaise. I used this recipe to make the mayonnaise. My first attempt failed miserably. I am not sure exactly what caused the problem, but my second attempt worked beautifully! Here is how to make this salad:
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise (use more if needed)
1/2 cup canned chicken (left over chicken, shredded or chopped would work great too)
1/3 cup grapes, sliced in half (about one handful)
1 very small apple, diced (or about 1/3 cup of diced apple)
1/4 cup cashews, roughly chopped
Salad (Mixed greens, romaine, spinach, spring mix, and/or shredded carrots)
To make the chicken salad mix the chicken, mayonnaise, apple, grapes, and cashews in a small bowl. If desired, add more mayonnaise. Scoop the chicken salad over a plate of greens and garnish with half an avocado. Makes 1 large salad.
