Avocado Chicken Salad

Okay, now most "salads" have some type of cream whether it be mayo or greek yogurt, what have you, but I made this completely no cream as I am not allowed any dairy and I simply don't like mayo :) As usual, everything mentioned is from Trader Joe's-
2 Bonless Skinless Chicken Breasts (found in the cold section, usually the wall, in vacuum sealed bags. There are 4 breasts total, each in their own bag.)
1 large avocado
1/4 onion
Sea salt
Half of a lime

You can easily add more if you are feeding more than one person but I made this for myself and there is enough for two meals.
I put the avo, salt, and onion in a bowl and mashed it up then added the chicken and lime and stirred it all together. Delicious and addicting.

Mushroom Turkey Meatballs

I recently went Paleo and kind of experimented with these meatballs. I figured instead of bread crumbs I'd use mushrooms and it worked!
I don't really have exact measurments I just kind of threw things in and hoped for the best but here is what I used (everything mentioned is from Trader Joe's)-
Ground turkey
Half bag of mushrooms
1/4 onion
2 cloves garlic
Olive oil
1 egg
Italian seasoning
Sea salt

I rolled them into balls and placed them on a cookie sheet on tin foil. Oven set at 375 for 35 minutes. I made 10 meatballs but they were pretty big so you may be able to get 15-20 out of this recipe if you make them smaller. I put them in the fridge for tomorrow's lunch and I plan on using an organic mushroom marinara with them. I hope you try this recipe out and like it :) Let me know if you do!
