Happy Friday everyone!
I know it’s not really strawberry season anymore but I couldn’t resist because they were on sale at the grocery store.
Chia seeds, coconut milk, maple syrup syrup
Frozen bananas, frozen strawberries, frozen raspberries, coconut milk ...
We made it! Happy Friday🙌🏼 Today I am sharing one of my most-pinned recipes: CHICKEN BUTTERNUT PEAR & GOAT CHEESE SALAD🤩 It’s got all the fall goods... crunchy pepitas, dried cranberries❤️, hearty farro, roasted butternut squash, sweet pear🍐, grilled chicken, goat cheese... all topped with an amazing maple dijon dressing!😋 This will forever be one of my favorite salads.🙌🏼
Anyone have adventurous weekend plans???😜 I’m just recipe testing, cleaning house, squeezing a home workout in, then doing client check-ins probably followed by some wine🍷 and a movie!🍿 .
✳️Did you know? Salads can be very nutrient-dense, but also very calorie-dense! Restaurant salads average over 1,000kcal, being loaded with nuts, dried fruit, cheese, bacon, avocado, and high-fat dressings (all the good stuff). Making your own salad makes it easier to control portion size (while still enjoying all the flavors).

Mac n cheese pizza - Please & thank you 😍
I honestly just baked some pizza dough and threw a box of @daiyafoods Mac n cheese on top. It’s pretty perfect 😂
I topped it with some chives but you can totally throw on some hot sauce, or whatever you would like!

🙋🏻♀️Raise your hand if you love🍌!! ...But, what happens as they change colour? 💛 Bananas are a great source of many nutrients, particularly potassium, magnesium, and B6. But really, I eat them because they’re sooo delicious, convenient, and cheap!💛💛💛
Calories per banana: 70-140 depending on size⚖️
green —> yellow —> brown
✅ resistant starch content decreases
✅ tastes sweeter - resistant starch turns into sugar
✅ gets digested easier and quicker causing a spike in the blood sugar
✅ some of the micronutrient levels decrease - happens with all produce to some degree once harvested
✅ antioxidant levels increase
⏰ If you want to speed up the ripening process, place in a brown paper bag. If you want to slow it down then place in the refrigerator. The peel will turn brown but the inner flesh will be just fine.
🛒👉 Which colour bananas do you prefer?!
I purchase Yellow💛Bananas and like to eat them when the brown spots start to appear. I tend to use the brown ones for baking 👍
How about You?!! Thanks to @kidfriendly.meals for this illustration.
Hope you’re having a great day!💚
