"Fav Food Gone Healthy, Healthy Recipes: Part 5

Last I check it was still summer and the humidity is reminding me of the every single day. When I left Florida I thought I left the humidity behind, nope it followed me. It’s raining yet it’s still hot. My Floridians know how it is when you get out the shower and yet you’re still sweating. This should not apply when you’re sitting down trying to enjoy your meal.

During the summer it’s nice to have light tasteful meals that will satisfy your appetite and yet it still fits into your diet plan. This week’s recipe has two on my favorite foods; Chicken and Strawberries. The recipe is great for lunch or dinner. I prefer having this for lunch as I hang out by the poolside with friends.
