Mexican Pulled Chicken Tacos

I hope everyone had a great first week back at school. I know our home was a little sad that summer vacay was over but we are all loving the routine that back to school brings. I am not going to lie over the summer meal prepping and cooking wasn’t always on point. This week a huge focus for me was to get back into prepping lots of healthy meals - specifically family dinners, lunches and lots of snacks.

I got the kids to help with snack prep, they whipped up cookies and energy balls from the cookbook and made some with sunbutter so they would pack them in their lunches for school. I planned and prep a weeks worth of delicious dinners.

I was recently on a cooking video sharing easy dinners to whip up for moms, and this is one of my new recipes that I shared with the viewers. So obviously my next move was to share it here with all of you. The reason I love this dish is because it is so versatile, it can be made for dinner or as a freezer meal and it’s a hit with the whole fam. Honestly these types of meals are my fav because they are easy to make, flavourful, healthy and just really really good!

Cashew Chickpea or Cashew Chicken

I do a lot of cooking classes and I recently did a few Keto workshops and the reason I

did them was because I wanted people to do it the “right” or most healthy way if

they were going to follow this trend. One of the dishes we created is my Cashew

chicken and it was such a huge hit with everyone. It also happens to be one of my

faves so of course I had to share it with all of you.

I know I initially I started my company as a plant-based meal prep company but we

have grown and evolved over time. With our training goals we found that adding in

a few meat meals each week really worked for us. My big message with nutrition is

you do what works best for you. Only you know your body, what makes it feel good

and what doesn’t. That’s why I gave two options for this week’s

blog post.

Apple & Almond Crunch Salad

As most of you know I am working on a detox program so I have been creating so many new recipes to include for this real food reset. I have worked hard to use ingredients that are fresh, and support the bodies natural detoxification process.

Almonds, apples, cruciferous veggies, lemon and ginger are all super food when it comes to detoxing the body from the inside out. That is how this salad was created. We tend to be creatures of habit and end up eating the same ol’ boring salad or bowl each week. My goal is to keep switching things up so you have SO many options of fresh spring and summer salads.

So far on the blog we have over 10 homemade dressing recipes and I am happy to include another one this week and it’s one of my new favs. Keep reading to grab this salad recipe as well as my new Lemon Ginger Dressing.

Chicken Detox Stew

Spring is in the air and that vibe always brings about a good Spring cleaning in our home. Along with cleaning out the house I do love a good real food reset to help facilitate a detox within our bodies.

People often think a detox means picking up a detox pill package or a special tea. A healthy detox is all about resetting, resting and nourishing the body from the inside out. At the same time eliminating any toxins or foods that can hinder the body’s natural detoxification process.

It’s about adding in foods that nourish our body and our cells. In this recipe, broccoli works to help detoxify the body it has a high amount of fiber, which allows you to feel full and it also works to keep your blood sugar low and balance between meals. This super veg also contains antioxidants and phytonutrients, which improves the detox process in your body and helps to eliminate other toxins.

I am working on putting together a 7-21 day real food reset detox program that will be coming out at the end of the month so if you feel like you could use a reset keep an eye out for it.

This is one of the recipes that will be in the program, it’s quick and easy to make and feels like comfort food warming you from the inside out. A perfect dish to add into your Sunday meal prep, we like to individually portion in containers for a delish grab and go lunch.
