A More Savory Chicken Salad

Most of my chicken salads are on the sweeter side--with green apple and/or grapes.  Last night, I decided to go for a more savory kick.  Here's the new recipe:


1 chicken breast, baked and cubed
1 tbsp. mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. Parsley
1/2 tsp. Oregano
2 stalks green onions, minced
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Salt & Pepper

Full recipe in the Recipe Book.

Green Juice

I made my first green juice today. The recipe, Cucumber Scallion, is on the Juicing page. I've been nervous about making a green juice because it seems so difficult, but I was really happy with how this one turned out.

A few things to mention:

I'm not sure juicing spinach is worth it. I used about 2 cups of spinach and swear I got, maybe, a teaspoon of juice. I'd rather eat it whole and get the fiber. This confused me, though, because it's in the green juices I buy at the store.

There are several health benefits to green onions that are added to this juice by including the green onion. I took a chance on this one and snipped a few stalks from my plant.  I'm glad I did; they add good flavor that is not overpowering. Among others, they have Vitamin A, C, and K. Your eyes will thank you.

Back to Juicing

I've started juicing again! I will be updating the Juicing page with new recipes as I create them. I'm really enjoying the freshness of all of the product and the nutrition that's packed in one cup.

To prepare for work mornings, I juice on the weekends or the night before and put the juice in a mason jar; then, it's ready to be drank in the morning right out of the jar. Generally, 1 cup is a good serving without being too much.
