Chicken Salad 2.0

Updated: Mar 11

First things first, #soulwork in the kitchen...

I adapted my recipe for an event for Heart Health Month (February);

I provided samples of this at the event and received good feedback.

Make this up on a Sunday and eat on it for a few days for lunch...

Here's how the ingredients are helpin' that heart beat (annnd your whole body)!

The chicken provides lean protein to help protect muscles (heart!). The olive oil and avocado oil mayo provide heart healthy fats that can protect heart from damage and improve cholesterol. The grapes provide fiber (complex carbohydrates), vitamin K, anthocyanins (purple color!) and reservatrol that all work together to protect the heart and improve blood flow. Celery provides fiber (complex carbohydrates), folate, potassium, and plant compounds that help to protect the heart. Sunflower seeds are high in magnesium, folate, vitamin E, and heart healthy fat. Green tea is rich in polyphenols (Catechin: EGCG!) which work to fight off disease and inflammation; green tea has been found to help promote healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels, too!
