Harvest Cobb Chicken Salad with Beets and Figs

Bursting with fall flavors and colors, this harvest cobb salad with beets and figs is a healthy dinner option that suites any taste buds.

Truth be told, I often eat the same thing over and over for dinner. Hey I like what I like and as long as it’s healthy and flavorful, then I will stick to my ways. Because my husband is often gone, I typically will make one big meal every few days and portion it out for lunch and dinner. I pick the foods and flavors I love and that way, eating the same meal never gets boring for me.

Well this past month, this harvest cobb salad with sweet beets and figs was on repeat and seriously, it’s delicious! The market here in Spain has had the most marvelous fresh figs and although I do not eat fruit very often, due to having type 1 diabetes, I usually let myself splurge a big in the summertime, when fruit is fresh, local and seasonal. I have been loving slicing one fig up and wrapping it in manchego and prosciutto for an afternoon snack.

Harvest Cobb Chicken Salad with Beets and Figs

Anyways, back to this harvest cobb salad with a tangy cinnamon balsamic vinaigrette that I can’t stop eating! It is still very hot outside, so salad as a meal seems so refreshing at this time of year. I love making fulfilling, meal style salads, rather than a side salad as those are just boring. This is a great way to eat lots of veggies but still make a fulfilling scrumptious meal, that is even husband approved.

To make this meal simple, look for pre-cooked beets at the store and then prepare the other ingredients and place them in glass storage containers. That way all you have to do when you want to eat is toss and serve. Keep all the fun, flavorful toppings in glass containers in the refrigerator so you can add to lettuce and top with chicken for a simply dinner or lunch!

What are your favorite fall flavors?

4 Simple Daily Steps to a Healthier YOU

Back to Basics: 4 Simple Daily Steps to a Healthier YOU

Before life gets all pumpkin spiced, I wanted to take a minute to get back to the basics. I remember as a little girl, getting so excited for a new school year. New books, classes, and new opportunities to learn—yes, I have always been a bit of a nerd.

Sometimes however I feel like we live in an information overload period of history. Life can be overwhelming sometimes—faced with a million decisions and countless paths to take.

So today, I am keeping it simple. Living a healthy life requires intention, a willingness to change and experiment, and dedication to always keep the big picture in mind.

I wanted to share a few “back to basics” principles that I practice everyday, and ones that I have seen a HUGE difference in my health, my joy and my energy each day.

4 Simple Daily Steps to a Healthier YOU

4 simple daily steps to a healthier YOU

Intentionally Choose A Positive Mindset

So much happens each day that is out of our control—hurricanes, war, negativity, stress, deadlines, toxins, etc. But choosing our reaction and choosing our mindset to approach those situations is in fact very much IN our control.

Negative thoughts lower your energy and will take that much more energy, aka stress on your adrenal glands, to bring you back up. If your health is already in a weakened state or you are in a state of adrenal fatigue, negativity can REALLY bring you down.

Your goals, attitude, fear of failure or success and the community you choose to keep all influence your mindset. Ultimately it requires YOU intentionally choosing how you are going to react to each situation. Choosing joy in each situation and choosing to find the silver lining, no matter how bad things may seem at the time, is a choice only YOU can make.

I have the words “choose joy” tattooed on my wrist for a reason—to remind myself that when life seems to be crumbling and there seems to be no good way out, it is up to me to choose joy, to keep persevering, to stay positive despite everything in my body telling me the opposite.

It takes intention to stay positive, and trust me it is NOT always easy, but with time and purposeful dedication, each time you are faced with a choice, it becomes that much easier to choose the road of positivity and grace.

Just Eat Fresh Foods

I am often overwhelmed with the dogma, the restriction, the negativity associated with food and nutrition. How do we really know what to eat and what not to eat and more importantly how do we allow something like pursuing a healthy way of life not consume our every action?

Searching for healthy can quickly become a negative if we allow it. But in eating real food, the way God designed the food, and the foods that nourish our cells and bodies, there is freedom.

Now, each person is unique and finding what works for you, your underlying health issues and your lifestyle is the best form of nutrition. But there are a few basic principles that are in fact true!

Eating real, fresh, whole foods is the one principle that never wavers. If you recognize the ingredients—think butter should just be cream and salt or eggs should just be, well eggs—then you are going to be eating healthy foods. Think about it, we are obsessed with reading nutrition labels and ingredients, but the world’s healthiest foods do not come with labels—sweet potatoes, beef, cream, spinach, almonds are all just their own ingredients.

That is what I mean by real, fresh, whole foods—foods as they are properly found in nature, without additives, sugars, toxins or pumped with hormones. Cows are designed to eat grass, so grass-fed beef should be “normal” (sadly it isn’t, but grass-fed beef would be a fresh, whole food).

Look for foods that will only last a few days or even a week. Eat foods without packaging or labels. Eat foods in their original form and you will be on the road to health!

Purposefully Slow Down

Slowing down isn’t about going on vacation or sleeping in on the weekends, it is about allowing rest and grace, not hustle, to permeate every aspect of your life. It is about making rest apart of your everyday practice, not just something you do in yoga class on Saturday mornings.

It is about intentionally choosing how you spend your time, what lights you up and carefully curating your top priorities.

You see, our adrenal glands control our stress response, but this issue is we have constant stressors and stimulation today. Even just being on your phone can sometimes be perceived by the body as a stress. We need to give our bodies room to breathe, to tap into our inner creativity, to detox naturally and to rest.

Just like your iPhone will eventually run out of battery, your body will eventually say enough and collapse unless you plug it into the charger daily. How can you purposefully plan your day and priorities to allow for times of rest?

Trust me, I believe in the hustle and believe in working hard and chasing our dreams, but we can’t do all that unless our bodies are fully functioning. Sometimes that means choosing rest over hustle.

Sadly, we live in a toxic world, which is the good and bad result of this modern era. We can’t freakout and go hid on the top of a mountain, but we can choose to eliminate toxins where we can. Choosing glass storage containers over plastics, safe laundry soap, deodorant and makeup will make a profound difference in our daily functioning.

Why? Because toxins interrupt our endocrine, neurological, reproductive and immune systems all of which are very important to every day functioning. These toxins can wreck havoc on our bodies, stimulating allergies, learning disabilities, thyroid dysfunction, PMS symptoms and adrenal fatigue.

What may seem like a simple step in choosing organic sheets, all natural deodorant, or heavy metal free lip stick, matters to you but also to your future!

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Chop Salad

A blissful summer meal, this healthy Mediterranean chicken chop salad comes together in minutes—simply grill, chop and toss for the perfect combination of flavor with each bite!

Do you ever just have one of those days? Days when you want to crawl in a hole and escape everything that is current reality? Well, I had one of those days a few weeks back and thankfully my sweet husband stepped in and somehow just made it all ok! He let me take a much needed nap, go for a long run in the sunshine with Libby the golden retriever and then kept me out of the kitchen for a few hours, saying dinner would be served at 8. Seriously? How cute is that!

I had no clue what he was making and honestly did not expect this amazing Mediterranean grilled chicken chop salad with sun-dried tomatoes, olives, feta and so much more. All I knew is that dinner was at 8 and that I was not allowed to do a thing, not even clean up!

And I will admit, I even got to eat in my bathrobe after a hot shower. Yes, dinner cooked completely by the husband, eaten on the patio in your bathrobe might just be my new favorite thing!

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Chop Salad

Since living in Spain we have sort of become olive obsessed, well more obsessed that we were before! Most every meal here in Spain starts with olives and when we are home we have taken up on that habit too. We may or may not even have a whole shelf dedicated just to olives. Yeah we are obsessed!

Olives are rich in healthy fats, Vitamin E (which is fabulous for your skin) and antioxidants, so I am totally down with eating them by the bowlful. Since olives are high in healthy fats and low in carbohydrates, I think they make the perfect afternoon snack or dinner appetizer because just a few leaves you satisfied and can help balance your hunger hormones!

We have been loving this Mediterranean grilled chicken chop salad and I love that it comes together so simply with minimal clean up. I like to make extras and store the toppings and grilled chicken in glass containers to eat for lunch or dinner throughout the week.

Mediterranean Chicken Chop Salad

serves 6

Grilled Chicken

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper

Sun-Dried Tomato Vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 sun-dried tomatoes, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian herbs

To Assemble

  • Mixture of baby lettuce, arugula and spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup olives
  • 8 oz feta cheese, crumbled (omit for Paleo/dairy-free)
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped


  • Add the chicken to a large bowl and pour in the marinade ingredients. Use a spatula to mix together, making sure all of the chicken is thoroughly coated.
  • Warm your grill or smoker to about 350 ° F. Grill your chicken for about 30 minutes, rotating about every 8 minutes, or until the internal temperature registers 165° F (I recommend using this internal temperature reader so you do not end up with dry chicken).
  • While the chicken cooks, whisk together your vinaigrette ingredients. Chop the lettuce and other salad ingredients and add to a large bowl. Right as the chicken is finished, toss the salad with the vinaigrette. Top with warm grilled chicken slices and serve.
