If there is one meal that usually gets shortcut, it’s lunch. I’m terrible with it. Breakfast and dinner–no problem, but lunch is always a problem.
Maybe it’s because I have a hard time figuring out what’s light enough to have before a workout, but full enough to pack some protein and sustenance. Enter Updated Waldorf Chicken Salad from Andie Mitchell’s newest book Eating in the Middle.
Admittedly, growing up, I was never a fan of this salad. My mom would fill it with nuts and raw onions. But this version – no nuts, no onions – hooray! And the best part of the salad, instead of grapes, Andie’s replaced it with pears. I’m a fan.
I’m also a fan of the rest of the book. It’s filled with all kinds of good-for-you goodies that are wholesome and along with indulgent treats that won’t leave your sweet tooth hankering. The recipes are made with easily sourced ingredients and easy to follow instructions. Yay, to 80 new healthy recipes!
