What a fun-filled weekend I had!

Mike, his family, and I headed to Toronto on Saturday for Mike’s cousin’s wedding. I had never been to Toronto before and I had a great time meeting new people, exploring the city, and getting to know the Canadian lifestyle.

A definite highlight of my weekend trip was getting to meet my girl Davida from over at The Healthy Maven.

If you haven’t been over to her blog yet, I suggest you head over there; I love her blog and absolutely love her! And a small world it is! It turns out Mike and Davida went camp together when they were kids.

 

We met, we talked, and it felt just like a bunch of old friends hanging out. I can’t wait for our next Toronto trip (over the Summer) when we can spend more time together!

Now that we are home and are getting settled for the work week, I wanted a lunch that was quick, easy, and light (since our weekend was anything but) and this was just what I needed.

10 minutes to toss together, one-bowl for minimal cleanup, and loaded with delicious Fall flavors = the perfect lunch for busy work weeks!

  1. Hi there! This looks really yummy!
    Do you think Greek yogurt would work here? I’m following a plan that keeps fats low when eating healthy carbs like fruit and grains.

  2. This chicken salad is absolutely delicious! I’ve made it several times, it’s become my new favorite meal prep for lunch!
