Chicken Hazelnut Cranberry Salad

2011 January 21

Clean, clear, starch-free meals are pretty much the one thing that makes my gut swoon with happy.   Since I totally caved to the CarbMonster with my last post on Vegan Mac&Cheese, I figure’d I’d get back on the train and be a little nicer to my gizards :D

I’ve been experimenting with different nuts in salads lately and I really, really like this combination.  At the last minute I threw in some grapefruit sections but honestly, you don’t even need those.  The roasty, almost smokey sweet flavour of the hazelnuts is perked up by the cranberry and balanced by the radicchio.  In fact, I’m surprised at how well the flavours mix, because the normally bitter flavour of the radicchio is totally gone in this combination.   The chicken is fancied up with a bit of thyme, and everything is dressed simply with lemon juice and olive oil.  Super lunch.

    I’m a gluten-intolerant group fitness instructor, and I’m so proud of you for committing to a gym membership! Check out the group fitness schedule at your gym. An accountability partner is great for getting you to the gym. A room filled with women to work out with and an instructor that wants the best for YOU is even more motivating. Best wishes on your new endeavor, and I know you’ll be feeling better soon!
