“Not Your Mama’s Chicken Salad”

You know what I’m talking about, the kind of chicken salad that your kid trades with his buddies to get another type of sandwich, a go-gurt, or anything that Mom didn’t make. This sandwich will have the other kids trading in their lunch money to get a taste of its chunky goodness and not-to-be-expected delights (Yummy). The subtle taste combinations with the sweetness of the craisins coupled with the savory baked chicken will totally have you asking for seconds. This is chicken salad elevated. Enjoy!

“Why Can’t I Meditate!!!!? Translation-Stuff I Wish I Did Well”

 

Yoga From A Natural- Jeanie Sallah

First let’s get one thing perfectly clear, I WANT TO MEDITATE!!!!!! Okay, now that that’s out the way I feel I’m ready to continue (Breathe). These days the buzzword “Mindful Meditation” is to the yoga and meditation community what the words “Open Concept” is to home sales (can you tell I watch a lot of HG TV). OK Here’s a fun fact, let’s say there’s this swanky dinner party being held at the Top of the Mark’s rooftop bar in San Francisco and the attendees are Ellen DeGeneres, George Stephanopoulus (Good Morning America), Tina Turner, Russell Simmons, Kobe Bryant, Russell Brand, Katy Perry (I know her and Russell are no longer together but Girl Power wins), Democratic Congressman Tim Ryan (Ohio), Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post, and Soledad O’Brien.

 Brandied Apple Raisin Bread Pudding

If you’re looking for a low calorie dessert option be advised “This is Not It”! This rich luscious combination of brandy, apples, and raisins combined in a rich custard is absolutely sinful; but oh so tasty. Serve it warm with a dollop a whip cream, delightful rum or caramel sauce, or a cool scoop of vanilla ice cream. We use non-fat frozen vanilla yogurt at my home, it’s just as yummy. Any way you serve it I guarantee your guests will be coming back for more!

YOGA FROM A NATURAL:  By Jeanie Sallah

unnamed

The other day some guy I thought was really fine said I was thick, what does that mean? Is “thick” good or bad? Couple that with my constant questioning of my butt being too big, or is my butt too small? Secretly wishing I looked more like that thin girl in my class. Wondering whether I do need liposuction on my stomach; I’ve got a gut you know. It’s a constant merry-go-round of doubtful questions taking up residence in my head. Am I too dark (yeah we still have that olden-day insecurity)? Is my forehead a bit too large, is my hair is too thin, too thick, do you think I need a nose, boob; you fill in the _________ job? I know you get the picture. What do you see when you look in the mirror and do you like her/him?
