Decadent. Delightful. Delicious.

No, I’m not talking about Brad Pitt in his starring role as Achilles in the EPIC chick-flick eye-candy film Troy

I’m talking about my recently created and devoured banana cream tart. It was amazing. Like, I literally took a bite and said “this is amazing.”

It’s also incredibly simple to make and requires no fancy ingredients. It does, however, require a bit of patience for the layers to set. But I know you can handle the wait. I just know you can!

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
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. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 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!
