Marinated chicken salad with roasted pumpkin, sweet potato & a honey mustard dressing!

If you’re looking for a delicious healthy chicken salad, then this recipe is perfect for you!

It’s been approx 21 weeks since i have given birth to my lovely number 3. I’ve decided its time to get back into shape. 

This time round i was super lucky with hardly gaining any weight with my little boy. The whole pregnancy was different! whereas, with both my daughters i gained 20Kg+ each leaving me looking like a complete beach whale.

I give a HUGE thanks to my mummas genes though. I was able to lose the weight real easily which is something my siblings and I share all thanks to mum! She had 9 children and you wouldn’t even guess when looking at her. I only pray my little girls also become lucky like i did.

I have also filmed a ‘Video Recipe’ for this which can be found on my YouTube channel ‘Amira’s Lifestyle Guide’ (click here –Amira’s Lifestyle Guide )

Method:
