The Clean Slate Day 10 with Coconut Green Curry Soup


2014/01/17 by nikkiledford

Have you liked my Facebook page yet?

Day 10 revealed yet another ridiculously beautiful day on the coast. It makes me a little worried actually. Its January, you know…WINTER. California has yet to see any real rain for the past few months. I can just feel the earth wanting some refreshment. Let’s hope the atmosphere gets it’s act together soon. Not that I really mind walks in the harbor and yoga in the park on days like these:

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 🥑🍋🌶🥒
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. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ 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!
