Avocado Chicken Salad From True Roots

Our family has had our fair share of clean-eating days. Three years ago my husband and I were eating a clean diet and felt great but because we are humans e fell off of the wagon a few times. Now we always eat healthy and try to workout. Sometimes are better than others and some months we eat a little too much ice cream. Instead of focusing on a "diet", losing weight etc. we decided to just make small changes to the way we prepare food. 

I've loved Kristin Cavallari for years but became so fond of her when she became a mom and adapted a healthier lifestyle. Last year I bought her cookbook when it came out and have tried a few recipes here and there. Honesty though, sometimes it's just easier to grab the pancake mix or packaged chicken salad from the store. Sometimes thinking about revising recipes can be overwhelming, or at least that's what I thought. That was until we started making small changes. I started making one wholesome recipes a day and now it's just become a habit. Being the healthiest is a must for my sweet babes. They deserve a mama who is on her A game! 

So I thought I would document this weeks recipes on the blog. Simple recipes all out of Kristen Cavallari's cookbook True Roots. I have always loved the idea of having many home cooked meals throughout the day. I grew up cooking in my grandmother's kitchen and I loved that. Although now the healthiest thing- my husband loves to tell the story of how my homemade lasagna won him over. 

It's so crazy to me that if you just take the time to fix healthy meals it seems to get easier and less complicated overtime.  I could have easily cooked an egg in the skillet and went on about my day for breakfast. Instead I made avocado toast with an egg, arugula and crushed red pepper flakes. Turns that boring egg into SUCH a good breakfast and really helps to get my day going (and coffee, of course) 

Today's lunch was Avocado Chicken Salad from True roots and let's just say, I'm pumped there are leftovers. Avocado and pink himalayan salt are a staple in our kitchen so I'm not mad about having both of those included and PHS. I forgot to snap a after picture before I devoured it but wanted to share the recipe with you guys if you don't have the book. If not I highly suggest it! 
Stay tuned for tomorrow's recipe. Butternut squash pancakes. YUM.
