-1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
-1 portobello mushroom, chopped

-fresh herbs (optional) (fresh parsley and basil)

Directions:

-Drain the chicken and add to a large bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients, stir to combine, transfer salad to a bowl and serve.

Fig & Watermelon Salad with Honey Vanilla Cashews

Hey Tribe! Looking for a delicious salad to try? Try this amazing #Chewsday recipe! For more healthy options, check out our online recipe guide —> https://fit-tribe.com/recipe-guide/

**Fig & Watermelon Salad with Honey Vanilla Cashews**

For the Honey Vanilla Cashews (makes 2 cups):
2 cups raw cashews (sprouted and dehydrated if you have the patience and time)
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 tablespoon melted ghee
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Fig & Watermelon Salad with Honey Vanilla Cashews (serves 4):
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
8 cups mixed lettuce greens
8 black mission figs, halved
¼ small watermelon, deseeded, rind removed, and thinly sliced
2 servings Porkitos (start with 6 ounces prosciutto)
½ cup Honey Vanilla Cashews

Directions:
-First things first: Preheat the oven to 350°F so you can bake your sweet-and-savory nuts.
-Dump the cashews in a large bowl…
…and add in the honey, ghee, vanilla, and salt.
-Mix until well coated. If available, employ child labor.
-Spread the sticky nuts in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
-Pop the tray in the oven for 6 minutes…
…and then stir the nuts around…
…before toasting them for another 6 minutes or until golden brown.
-Remove them from the oven to cool on the counter.
-In the meantime, bake the Porkitos if you haven’t already.
-The zesty lime salad dressing is a breeze to make: In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, and mustard with a pinch of salt and some pepper.
-Dump the greens in a large bowl and toss with the vinaigrette.
-Divide half of the greens onto four plates and cut up the figs and watermelon.
-Place half of the fruit on top of the greens, before adding the rest of the greens. Top with the rest of the fruit, crunchy Porkitos, and Honey Vanilla Cashews.
-When I plate my salads, I like to layer dressed greens with the other components. That way, you get a taste of all the ingredients with each bite. The one exception? Crunchy ingredients (e.g. Porkitos, bacon bits, nuts, etc.), which go on top. I add ‘em last so they stay crispity-crunchity.

The 6 Worst Items In Your Kitchen…

Many of us like to think of ourselves as people who eat healthy, but we still keep quite a few things in our kitchen that won’t do us any favors in our search for fitness and fat loss.

 

We all have to be honest with ourselves and understand if we’re surrounded by poor food choices, it’s only a matter of time until those foods find their way into our bellies.

You’d be surprised how many fattening foods you’re still buying and eating. Keep reading to learn the 7 Worst Items inside your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator.

1. Breakfast Cereal

It’s delicious, it’s easy to prepare, has fun names and sometimes it even comes with a prize! It’s food and entertainment!

Unfortunately, breakfast cereal is often jam-packed with extra sugars that will do more to drag you down than build you up for your day. Prefer the flavorless kinds? Even those supposedly “good” carbs will still spike your blood sugar, causing a corresponding spike in insulin and put you into fat gain mode. Don’t let the bland taste fool you into believing it’s health food, they’re one of the most processed foods on the market.

2. Flavored Yogurt

Yes, flavored yogurt tastes much better than its plain peers, but going with a pre-flavored yogurt will instantly double the amount of sugar you consume. Our clients have seen the best results avoiding dairy altogether, but if cutting out yogurt all together is a deal breaker for you, switching to plain greek yogurt and fresh fruit is a much better choice.

3. Microwave dinners

It’s hard to believe how many people rely on frozen TV dinners on a regular basis. If you’re a frozen believer, it’s time to put your health before convenience. On top of frequently lacking all the vitamins and minerals you need for optimal health, frozen dinners often ooze with trans-fats and sodium.

Even the so called healthy frozen dinners are anything but. If you need convenience buy frozen chicken breast and vegetables separately and have some “go to” seasonings to make it interesting. A chicken breast, mixed vegetables and some ethiopian spices sounds a lot more interesting than a meal prepared months ago in a factory who knows where.

4. Packaged Snacks

A wise man once told me “real food grows mold and dies” and if you really think about it, the healthiest foods we can eat, would never survive in your pantry for a month. Chips, Pretzels and every other bag of carb bombs in your kitchen should go right in the trash. Trade your grains for greens and you’ll be amazed at the changes you see in your health and body.

5. “Skinny” Desserts

The word “skinny” is alluring. It’s what many of us want to achieve, and marketers know that. Unfortunately, marketers are not tied to some code of ethics that prevents them from using words that are not factual. What they are tied to is doing whatever it takes to sell more of their product. A great way to do that is to toss the word “skinny” on your favorite dessert item. You’ll buy it, thinking you’ve saved yourself valuable calories, but all you’ve probably done is buy a smaller portion of the same stuff junk!

6. Granola Bars

Enjoyed by healthy hikers around the world, granola bars are the final unexpected bad choice in your kitchen. This one may have you scratching your head when you consider that your favorite kind is crammed with every fruit and nut you can imagine. But read the ingredient label and you’ll quickly see that there is probably more sugar—make that high-fructose corn syrup—than your body can use.

If you’re stuck in a cycle of eating processed crap like this, commit a week to the Fit Tribe cleanse. We updated it this summer and it’s the perfect way to jump start your results and get back on track! This isn’t a crazy juice cleanse where you’ll have to starve yourself, but you will be eating TONS of veggies.

There are two things all healthy people do:

1. Exercise

2. Eat lots of non starchy veggies
