For those of you that haven't heard the story of my wimpy ankle, I will give you the abbreviated version.
Six months after my surgery, some of my friends suggested that I try P90x. I started the program while I was still in a leg brace. It was challenging and exhausting but it gave me hope that I could overcome my wimpy ankle. I completed my 90 days and then I started it all over again - this time without a leg brace.
Now, I'm completely hooked on the Beachbody workouts. In 2010, I ordered One on One with Tony Horton and Insanity. Now I combine all 3 programs into a workout schedule that is perfect for me. I'm in better shape now than I was when my only exercise was running.
Included with the P90x and the Insanity programs are nutrition guides and recipes. The recipes are designed to provide you with the energy that you need to continue the workouts and still burn fat. There are several recipes from the P90x recipe book that have become family favorites, like the turkey burgers.
My friend Ben adapted this chicken salad recipe from the P90x recipe book and it's one of the best chicken salads I've ever eaten. Last week, I made a batch big enough to serve 30 people. (It was for a party - not for my family of 4.) If you like chicken salad - you need to give this recipe a try.
3 pounds chicken, roasted and shredded
3/4 cup light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dill
1/4 cup honey Dijon
3 cloves garlic
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup slivered almonds
salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients except almonds. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Top with almonds and serve.
