Valuable tips that will save you time and money...

Eating healthy can be expensive and time consuming unless you know some valuable tips in meal preparation. Here are a few good tips:
1) plan ahead for next week's meals
2)think in terms of multiple meals using one protein source
3)creste a meal, starting with your protein source
4)use what's on hand, improvising
5)Include a protein and vegetable and perhaps starch, preferably a complex carbohydrate ( think brown rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes, parsnips, yams, peas)

With these tips in mind, Monday's baked chicken could be Wednesday's chicken salad. Here's my chicken salad recipe:

Apple Chicken Salad

De-bone and chop leftover baked chicken and place in a bowl. Add 2 stalks of chopped :celery, 1/3 onion and 1 Granny Smith Apple. Add 2 Tablespoons of mayonnaise of your choice and mix ingrediants together. Place on romaine or other lettuce leaves and enjoy!
