And now that we’re finally about settled in our new home, I’m back to cooking healthy meals and sharing recipes and health tips with you. First up, this super delicious Lemony Chickpea and Chicken Salad. It is so quick and easy for a weeknight dinner (which I now need because my commute has doubled with our move!) and the leftovers are perfect to take to work for lunch. It packs protein, fiber, and antioxidants to keep you energized, full, and provide protection for your cells. Enjoy!

  • 3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
