So eating healthy does not need to be a drag.  Throwing this healthy salad together for lunch will take you less than twenty minutes and will prevent the late afternoon slump from getting hold of you.  Both my teenagers seemed to be impressed with this tasty ensamble as a post-exam filler.



1 Tbsp garlic infused avocado oil

one chicken breast butterflied

salt and pepper

one pear

1/2 an avocado pear

1 cup of torn lettuce

1/2 cup of dried cranberries

1/2 cup of walnuts

1/2 a cup of olive oil

1/2 a cup of balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp honey

  1. Heat the avocado oil in a heavy based frying pan.
  2. Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper.
