Pineapple Salsa

It finally happened. I legitimately hurt myself at work.

When you’re a cook, there’s a general understanding that you are going to end up getting little nicks and burns here and there. For me, there has always been a nagging dread of the one day when occupational hazards and fate meet in one perfect pain storm… and that day was today.

I cut the tip of my thumb off. THE TIP OF MY THUMB! Gross? Definitely. Painful? For sure. Grateful that it wasn’t my entire finger? You bet. Sometimes, slicing a garlic clove isn’t as easy as it sounds. One slip of the knife and you will be dealing with a bum hand for a couple of weeks. It’s a bleak future (ok, that’s a bit short-sighted, but holy HECK my hand hurts). Let’s just say, showering is going to be awkward.

Well, enough of my complaining. And since you probably feel like eating now, here’s yet another NON-DESSERTย recipe that is delicious and Summery and PALEO!

*note: no body parts were harmed in the making of this salsa.

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!
