Cranberry and Sunflower Salad with Chicken

I love salad. Not garden salad but creative salads. Different seasonal vegetables, nuts, cheese, whatever floats your boat but annnything different from lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers ahah.

I came up with this quick the other day when we needed a quick meal that also gave leftovers for the next day!

Ingredients:
Chicken breasts (depending on how many people you’re cooking for)
Spinach
Green onion
Cranberries (dried or not)
Sunflower seeds
Blue cheese
Multigrain rustic baguette
EVOO
Balsamic glaze

Methods:
Preheat the oven to 375 and put chicken breasts in parchment paper and season with your favourite seasoning. I used a simple garlic powder, salt, pepper, and rosemary.

Cook through.

Individually make salads. Combine spinach, green onion, cranberries, sunflower seeds, blue cheese crumbled.

Drizzle with EVOO and balsamic glaze

Serve with chicken and toasted multigrain bread

Dairy-Free Maple Latte

I don’t know if I’m stereotypical or just a total product of my environment but I LOVE MAPLE SYRUP. In the spring there’s the Maple Syrup Festival and in the fall there is the chilly weather which calls for maple syrup in our lattes and on our breakfast. To make it just a little healthy, I made it dairy-free; you can’t even tell the difference. Try it and I promise, you’ll enjoy it.

Ingredients:
1/3 cup of coffee
1/2 cup of almond milk, or regular
1 tbsp of maple syrup

Methods:
Put your milk a pot and heat, stop before it is boil. Use a hand blender and blend the milk until it froths.
While you do this, make your coffee.
Put your coffee in a mug, add in your maple syrup, and top with your milk. Allowing the froth to be the last thing that goes in your mug.
You can add in some cinnamon or nutmeg as well if you’d like!

Done! Enjoy!
