Chicken, Pear and Avocado Salad
Since summer, my husband and I have been really working hard at eating well and losing weight (using a Fitbit and tracking in My Fitness Pal). I can’t tell you how much easier and more motivating it is to accomplish this when you have a partner. Especially when your partner lives in your house and is your husband.
It’s one thing for me to make healthy choices just for myself…but when I know that my cooking and meal prep also helps my husband achieve his healthy living goals, well for some reason that pushes me a little more. I know he appreciates it too.
This salad. This salad is a product of our healthy living partnership.
I have been in a major salad rut lately. It happens. Two trips to the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival, my baby’s first birthday celebration (will be sharing about it in my next post!), and a few too many pizza nights have happened lately too. Both my husband and I can say we have been feeling the effects of all those good times on our bodies. Just not feeling our best – a little sluggish and few extra pounds on the scale. I knew I had to get my salad makin’ self back to makin’ salads. For both of us!
We had this Chicken, Pear and Avocado Salad for dinner the other night. If I am going to present my husband with a salad for dinner then it better be a good one, I’ve learned. It better have meat in it, for one, and it better taste so good he doesn’t realize he just ate a salad for dinner. You know what I mean?
A couple of shortcuts like rotisserie chicken and store bought salad dressing (I’m picky about my dressing, so it had to be a good one – I used this one that I have been liking a lot lately) made this Chicken, Pear and Avocado Salad a great weeknight dinner salad. It restarted our healthy eating for the week and got us back on track. My daughter was a huge fan of this salad too, and my boys enjoyed it in a little more deconstructed/sandwich form.
I’m pretty much addicted to this salad and with pears and avocado on sale this past week, I think it’s safe to assume I will be making it again this week.
Have a great week!
