Re-fueling my body, especially post-workout, is super important to me every day. I make these chicken salad lettuce boats often for a quick and easy lunch packed with protein to help refuel and rebuild lean muscles. For a healthier alternative, I always substitute the typical mayo with FAGE Total 0% Plain Greek yogurt. In addition to having a rich and creamy texture, it’s delicious and only contains naturally occurring milk sugars. If you’ve been searching for that perfect go-to chicken salad recipe, you’re in the right place!
When I am really on top of things, I also make some ready-to-go snack packs with the chicken salad and keep them in the fridge. They sure come in handy for when I need a nutritious and quick snack. I’ve found if I am prepared with healthier snack options and protein-packed meals for when things get busy, then my life goes so much smoother. It helps me stay fueled and ready to take on my day and keep going!
I’m excited to finally get a chance to share Norah’s cookie recipe. A lot of you have seen video’s of Norah making them on Sunday’s at our house on my Instagram stories. We even started calling them “Norah’s cookies,” because she makes them nearly every Sunday. They really have become my favorite cookie lately, and that is saying a lot! Number one, they are flourless and gluten-free. I’m not sure if that is what I like about them, but after eating them I don’t feel that heavy feeling that flour gives me after eating cookies. Number two, it is chocolate and peanut butter. Need I say more? Always a winning combination for me.
So many of you were interested in the recipe because many times gluten-free recipes fall short. Well, this isn’t one of them. It is super easy and straight forward, and they turn out yummy and perfectly chewy and soft every time! We like to make them with regular chocolate chips, or sometimes we leave out the chocolate chips and we add Hershey’s kisses to the top as soon as they come out of the oven. You could easily use the dairy free chocolate chips to make this recipe dairy-free as well. But, this week, since it’s is Valentine’s Day week, we added the little Dove Chocolates Milk Chocolate hearts to the top for the perfect gluten free Valentine’s Day cookie!
Chicken Noodle Soup. What’s not to like? I have always thrown together my favorite Chicken noodle soup recipe, and I haven’t really taken the time to write down the recipe. I’ve been throwing the basics into the pot with my favorite herbs. But, over the years as I have made this soup and posted snippets on my Instagram, I always get questions asking for my recipe! So, I finally paid attention for you and wrote it down! There are a million variations to chicken noodle soup, but this is the one I always fall back on each time I make it. And, it is always a favorite and a yummy soup to have for dinners, and even extras for lunch!
I love that you can make this in a big pot, or put it in your pressure cooker! I’ve been using my Ninja Foodi Pressure cooker a ton lately, they nicely sent one over to me and I finally broke it out and it has been amazing! It has two lids so it is an Air Fryer, Roaster, Bake, Steam, Sauté, Slow cook, dehydrator, rice cooker, Pressure cooker and so much more all in one! I highly recommend it! So, my most recent batch I cooked it in there, but can also do it on the stove! I hope it becomes a staple in your home as it has been in mine!
