Would you believe it's almost the 8-year anniversary of this recipe on Weeknight Bite!? I originally posted it one week after Mitch and I got engaged and the original post was full of giddiness and gushing all about how my "fiancé" loves this recipe so much. It's so funny to go back to the early WNB posts because in some ways, it feels like the time has flown by, but then I watch the recipe video that was part of this original post (scroll down to the bottom to check it out — I'm way too sentimental to delete these videos, even if the time has come to update the post and the photos!), and I get a peek into our life at that exact moment, and it makes me so nostalgic and happy and also feels like it was a lifetime ago! I'll tell ya what hasn't changed though — how delicious this recipe is... and how much Mitch still loves it ha! He wolfed down about half the pan after I finished shooting the new photos, and I had to laugh that it is just as big of a hit now as it was 8 years ago.
When I lived in LA, California Chicken Cafe was one of my weekly spots to pick up a healthy dinner. It was like the healthy West LA cafeteria where I always run into someone we knew picking up their favorite salad, cabbage slaw, and a quart of broccoli soup (#IYKYK). Their salads are huge and loaded with so many delicious toppings, which always include a very generous portion of avocado and their juicy chicken straight off the rotisserie (no dried-out salad bar chicken allowed). I seriously miss my go-to California Chicken Salad so much. and rather than resist the craving until my next LA trip, I decided it was time to make my own version. I'm so excited to say that it turned out just as good as the original... dare I say, maybe even better than the CCC salad that inspired it!
We went to Cabo a couple months ago, and ever since coming back, I’ve been dreaming about the fresh ceviche that we ate there every day on repeat. I decided it was time to bring the Cabo vibes home with this Shrimp & Avocado Ceviche, made with 7 super simple ingredients and no cooking required!
I haven’t been this excited about a recipe in a long time, friends! Get ready for the most delicious & healthy One-Pan Paleo Orange Chicken & Broccoli, made with a bunch of simple & fresh ingredients, without any of the added sweeteners that you see in so many recipes, and simplified by using broccoli florets that are all chopped and ready to throw into the pan so it comes together super quickly! You’ll love this easy & healthy spin on everyone’s favorite take-out!
Nothing says Mother's Day like a delicious brunch to spoil the special mamas that we love so much! Here's a round-up of some of my favorite healthy brunch recipes that would come together to make the most perfect menu for your brunch festivities this weekend!
