Lemony White Bean & Arugula Chicken Salad

I don’t think of myself as someone who would order just a salad at a restaurant or look for salad recipes as meals, but once in awhile I come across some really amazing ones that just hit the spot. Giada’s lemony white bean and arugula salad is one of my favorites. It’s so bright and fresh, and with my addition of shredded rotisserie chicken breast, it made for a satisfying and substantial dinner. I’ve been traveling quite a lot for work and eating many wonderful dinners out with my co-workers, so I was excited to get back into my healthy eating! Just a few more months until the summer!

Slow Cooker White Bean, Chicken & Poblano Chili

I was inspired by the wonderful Rachael Ray for this delicious recipe. It’s a nice light change to the traditional tomato-based beef chilis, instead using white beans, chicken and poblano peppers for some kick. I cook it in the slow-cooker so I can set it and forget it, and then enjoy it on a cold night. So simple and comforting!
