Best Chicken Salad Ever! Recipe picture showing dry and prepared salad in 4 oz canning jars.

Best Chicken Salad Ever! Meal in a Jar

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Thrive Chopped Chicken

1 T. Thrive Chopped Onions (FD) (not dehydrated version, they won’t refresh as fast)

1 T. Thrive Chopped Celery

1 T. Thrive Sweetened Cranberries or you can skip this or substitute Thrive Red Seedless Grapes (I like the sweet/tangy contrast!)

1 t. or 1 personal packet of mayonnaise (you can use any mayo, but Olive oil variety is good for Keto or Paleo diets!)

1 t. or 1 personal packet of Dijon Mustard (you can sub the mustard, but Dijon gives it the best flavor IMHO!)

Pinch of Thrive Chef’s Choice Seasoning

Pinch of Thrive Peppercorn Seasoning

 

Instructions:

Put the ingredients in 4 oz canning jar, shake gently to mix, then put the condiment packets down the side or on top.

When ready to eat, remove the packets, add their contents to the jar with 1/4 cup water, shake well, then let rest for 5-10 minutes in fridge or ice bucket. It may seem too watery at first, but that will thicken up during the rest time.

Voilà! Instant lunch!

It’s even better if you mix it first thing in the morning and let sit in fridge until lunch time!

Quinoa, Great for Diabetics!

Did you know Quinoa is said to be not only diabetic-friendly, but beneficial for diabetics?          Here is an article that explains how! 

Some excerpts  from the article:

“When compared to many other grains, quinoa has more:

  • protein
  • antioxidants
  • minerals
  • fiber

It’s also gluten-free. This makes it a healthy alternative for people who are sensitive to glutens found in wheat.”

“Because of its high fiber and protein content, quinoa makes you feel full for longer.”

“Healthy meal plans for people with diabetes often focus on choosing foods rated at medium to low on the glycemic index. Quinoa is on the low end, meaning it won’t cause a spike in blood sugar.”
