Chicken Salad Cups

by | Jul 19, 2019 | Food & Wine

I’m coming up on my 10-year wedding anniversary in September, just in time for this Bridal issue! When I think of my wedding planning season, I remember wanting to look my absolute best but simultaneously being under more stress and overall busyness than any other season of my life. After all, a bride is trying to fit all of their wishes, style, and love into one day that reflects her and her soon to be partner-no pressure, right?! Your workouts and nutrition need to be more efficient than ever. Smart nutrition means you reach your goals and feel your best; think more energy, vitality, immunity, and that ever-sought-after bridal glow! When I customize Nutrition Programs for my client’s (brides included) I teach them that deprivation and counting macros and calories has no place in a life-long plan. Instead I educate on what each food group does and then personalize a specific plan with balanced nutrients for each client. As for the big day, take a breath and remember to pause and take it all in girls…all those people are cheering for you!
This Lettuce Cup recipe is a staple for anyone looking to improve the way they look and feel! It’s an easy way to fit a lot of nutrients and protein into a busy day while omitting all the food that may cause bloating, inflammation, or breakouts. Make your nutrition work for you friends!
