Finally! It’s over! I can breathe again. December was B-U-S-Y! With the anniversary, birthdays, Christmas, family gatherings, office parties, New Years celebration and a lot of packing and unpacking behind, I can now go back to creating salads. I was happy to learn from all the holiday events and cooking, I didn’t gain a pound! Most of us will make a new year resolution that involves our weight or health, which it’s always easy to keep. If you made a new years resolution, read in my recent post here how to achieve it.

This next recipe was an inspiration from a trip my husband and I took recently to Hawaii. Butterhead lettuce is a great choice for sandwiches and wraps. It is available at a low cost all year round. The dark green leaves provide more beta carotene and vitamin C than paler leaves. Combining it with protein like chicken is always a great idea. Sesame seeds will provide you with heart health and hormone balance.
