This avocado and mango chicken salad is made up of such good intentions.
Intentions to start eating mainly "clean foods" when my little man gets here. Fruits and veggies and whole grains and proteins, things that will keep me full as long as possible and not bother my baby's tummy while I'm nursing.
I originally saw this salad on my Instagram feed I had to have it.
I've started following all the #cleaneating, #fitspo, #healthyfood folks on Instagram hoping they will post other meals that inspire me and keep me focused.
I need to stay focused on avocados, fresh lemon zest, juicy mangos and grapes. Fresh salmon, slow cooked and pulled chicken breast for salads with greek yogurt or olive oil and salt and pepper.
It makes me feel healthier just looking at it!
Unfortunately there are things like Lucky Charms and marshmallow popcorn that distract my good intentions.
"You're still a big ole' pregnant lady and you only have a week to go! Enjoy us now!" they say.
So I do.
But this salad sure makes my plans for later more appealing.
