Mango Blueberry Salsa

I was fortunate enough to spend this past Sunday having a picnic with my family. My Dad has a connection to a winery somewhat near his home in Ventura and we always seem to congregate there for any family gatherings. It’s a really beautiful and low-key place. You can bring all your own food and just hang out, eat, wine taste, and absorb some sun. Check out Old Creek Ranch Winery

Of course I brought some paleo fare to the cracker and cheese-fest. Beginning with some smoked salmon from my favorite fish market in Dana Point. Jon’s is the best! Followed by this delicious and refreshing Mango Blueberry Salsa. Finished off with some Peppermint Paleo Fudge (recipe to come) and some Chewy Paleo Brownies. My dad made the suggestion to spread the fudge on top of the brownies for a “frosting” like effect. I think I’ve mentioned 1 or 2 (or 12) times that my dad loves chocolate. That guy never misses an opportunity to amp up the cocoa intensity. Gotta love him.

Here’s a glimpse of the big guy… no really, he’s 6’8″. Undoubtedly fishing for chocolate fish.

Anyways… this post is not about chocolate. It’s about amazing summer fruit! This salsa is great on its own or with your favorite paleo “chip” (sweet potato, plantain, cucumbers, endive leaves… just to name a few). Or you could use it as a topping for some tacos. You could even eat it alongside your breakfast eggs. I don’t care HOW you eat it, the point is that you need to eat it. A super tasty experience awaits.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week ๐ŸŒถ Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฅ’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅ—โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅ—โ˜€๏ธ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me ๐Ÿ˜ Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
