Snack Tray & Chicken Salad, Oh My!

Hello everyone! Today I have a couple of awesome things to share with you! It's not a lunch! Ha ha ha! Summer is approaching fast and I just bet you are wondering how to keep the kids happy and healthy while they graze the day away. If your kids are anything like mine on summer break you will hear the all to familiar sound of your kids in the kitchen! So let's keep them out of the not so good for snacks and help them make better choices throughout the day. Now I'm not saying there is anything wrong with chips but let's face it they CAN NOT survive on chips alone! So here is an idea on how to keep the healthy options available.

Apples and carrots are an easy and affordable option!

Here it is all ready to go in the fridge for easy access. Grapes, apples, cucumbers, celery, and carrots. I also pitted a pound of cherries.

Here is a quick lunch option for the kids or mom and dad. I made the chicken salad for my mom. She loves it and it's something she can grab to put together a quick lunch for work.                                     

Chicken Salad Recipe

1 cup halved grapes
1/2 cup diced apples
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 to 1/2 cup mayo
1 can of chicken breast


Drain chicken and break apart. Add grapes, apples, almonds, and mayo. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Viola! Enjoy!

 Now that's a pretty easy lunch! You can use leftover rotisserie chicken also. Change it up a bit also. Use pecans or walnuts instead of almonds. Add cranberries instead of grapes. The possibilities are endless!
