I’m a pretty good cook, if I do say so myself. I’ll be honest with you guys though, I’m very much self taught. I do not come from a long line of chefs. However, before Liam was born, I decided I needed to stop eating out and shed some extra weight. At that point, I really poured myself into cookbooks, cooking shows, Pinterest recipes, etc. I’m currently in another season of being ready to lose some weight. I think I’m about 30 pounds away from my weight loss goals (which means I’m down 10 lbs!) so I thought you guys might enjoy having me share some of my favorite recipes for weight loss and simplicity. I really like to focus on efficient meals, meal ideas that are easy to do with two small children fighting in the next room.
This recipe I used my Kitchen-aid mixer for, but I’m sure an electric mixer would have the same effect.
I baked 5 chicken tenderloins in the oven at 425 for 30 minutes.
Threw the cooked tenderloins in the mixing bowl.
Turned it on a 2 speed and let the mixer shred the tenderloins up for me
I added about a cup of olive oil mayo
a bunch of grapes
a handful of sunflower seeds
a handful of nuts
a handful of shredded carrots
mixed it again on that 2 speed to combine everything.
I served mine on a cucumber, but would be delicious on a French baguette as well.
This is a very easy meal to create, and really allows you to use up any ingredients you’re on the verge of wasting. I highly recommend!
