Trim Healthy Mama - Chicken Salad "S"

Hello friends, as you know I have been talking lately about my new eating regime... I am extremely happy to say that even when I haven't lost much weight and have been fluctuating with a couple of pounds lately I am NEVER hungry and I am NOT gaining... In the past I used to gain weight if I ever went over 1200 calories... I would've never dreamed to be able to actually have a healthier relationship with food... In my THM journey I am learning to not hate food nor (love it excessively)  I love our Creator and I am trusting HIM with my eating... who would've thought? RIGHT? He was right FROM THE BEGINNING! And here I was trying everything and always feeling deprived in the past! I went from pills to shots, to extreme diets and everything worked for a period of time... but then I would gain it all back and more! ALWAYS! Now... don't be discouraged for the fact that I say I haven't lost much... I have had to admit that age and my crazy dieting have messed up with my system big time and now my metabolism is slow and I have thyroid issues... I have an appointment in April to get my hormone levels checked out and hopefully start to see more results with THM as I continue to improve my health but I am a big believer (now) on whole foods and letting God use them to restore my body that I have put through so much in the past!

I will probably be sharing more about my weight loss journey soon and about how "it all began" but for now I just want to share with you my delicious and healthy lunch I had today... I hope... if you are also struggling with weight and diets that you will give God a chance.... a chance to control every single area of your life including eating... and trust Him and what He made, the way He intended to nurture your body and to heal whatever could be going wrong with it...

Now... To my lunch

Simply Delicious Chicken Salad - S

This is an S Meal (S stands for satisfying in the THM plan... if you're not familiar with this but would like to know more visit )

Servings: About 4

  • 2 big chicken breasts cooked and shredded (careful if you buy rotisserie chicken from the store, check the label, they usually add sugar to it. No sugar is on plan)
  • 1/4 red onion (chopped)
  • 2 stalks of celery (peeled and diced)
  • 1/2 cup natural almonds (you can also use dry roasted, lightly salted almonds)
  • 1/4 cup real mayo (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika (this is the "secret" Ingredient, smoked paprika has an amazing smokey yes but also sweet flavor that makes it all extra special, I use the Kirkland Brand)
garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste

Mix it all and Enjoy!!!
Garnish: Up to half an avocado (sliced) per serving, 2 slices of tomato, large lettuce leaf.

I hope you enjoy this meal (as much as I did) you can also serve this salad with 1 Light Rye Wasa Cracker to stay on S mode.
