Chicken Fajita Salad Meal

OurPlate Score: 10/10          Follow Us On Facebook

It’s summer now in much of the world, and we wanted to start off the new season with a fun and slightly unusual salad meal post. This meal is tempting in its own right, but it also shows how traditional cuisines can be naturalized and made far healthier, when we eat the HumanaNatura way and follow HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines. In this case, our meal involves blending a traditional chicken fajita recipe with fresh veggies and seasonal greens to produce an extra-healthy meal that is delightful to prepare, behold, and eat.

Our HumanaNatura sample meal starts by marinating both sides of a thin or horizontally-halved chicken breast, refrigerated, for 1-8 hours in a covered glass or ceramic bowl. The marinade is made from a good squeeze of lime juice, a generous dash of olive oil, some chopped garlic and seeded jalapeno pepper, a good shake each of ground cumin and chilli powder, and a bit of chopped cilantro. When you are ready to cook the chicken, first thinly slice and set aside some yellow onion, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper.

Wipe most of the marinade from the chicken and sear the breast in a saute or frying pan on high heat for about 3 minutes on each side, using a bit of canola oil as needed and moving the chicken occasionally to prevent it from sticking. When the chicken is cooked, set it aside, covered. Next, saute the sliced onion and peppers in the same pan, on medium-high heat, for about four minutes or until tender, and then allow the veggie mix to cool slightly. As the cooked veggies cool, prepare and dress a generous salad of seasonal greens, halved grape tomatoes, and diced cucumber. Thinly slice the cooked chicken and place it to the side of the salad and then partially cover it with the cooked veggie mix. Finally, garnish the entire meal with chopped parsley and black pepper, and serve immediately. As the photo suggests, muy delicioso!

Greetings from HumanaNatura at the solstice! In the natural year, we are now at the extreme points in the ever-changing light of the natural year. Today is the shortest day of the year and winter solstice in the southern hemisphere, and the summer solstice and longest day in the north – each milestone part of an ongoing rhythm of life on earth that touches and can aid us all.

A Moment in the Everchanging Light and Rhythm of the Natural Year

In the HumanaNatura natural health system, and as explained in our Mastering The Natural Year graphic and post, we encourage spending this and every solstice with family, friends, and community. With the special light and often intense feeling that comes with the solstices, it’s a natural opportunity to mark the passage of time, celebrate progress in our lives and Natural Life Plans, and encourage new health and progressivity in others.

If you have not yet created a Natural Life Plan to guide your use and expression of the third HumanaNatura technique, Natural Living, our links will take you to our planning worksheets and seven-step planning process. Together, these resources will help you to begin more intentionally health-centered and naturally progressive life in the days and weeks ahead.

Our newest member newsletter was released today as well, which is published eight times yearly in harmony with the natural year, providing updates on HumanaNatura’s resources, programs, and worldwide health campaigns.
