The first month of 2013 is virtually gone, New Orleans is hosting another Superbowl and Mardi Gras is building up steam for its February 12th finale. Hmm, sounds like we all have a lot out there to embrace and enjoy, right?
But, trying to do even half of all this activity is bound to take its toll on anyone. So, skip the Popeye's and countless other junk food options out there( Hey, I know they're quick and handy. But, we're talking about staying healthy to party harder for another year!! Jeez! ) and opt for a healthy & yummy, energy-packed meal!
So be you natives or visitors and whether you're in a house or hotel room, this strawberry/peach & chicken salad is easy to make and will give you the energy to face all this insanity going on around us. But, Angela ain't here to amen my claims, so I'll let Tasty25.com editor and boss, David Jones take this one. David??
