First off where’s the mint? I’m not talking about the mint green colored pieces in the bar; I’m talking about the flavor! It’s not there at all!! I originally thought it would be sickening sweet, but it’s the opposite! It also has the same dryer consistency as the Smores bar. I don’t know if that’s their new formula? But it’s not working for the mint chunk! The Smores is awesome and tastes great!
Stay away from this bar it’s nasty!
Prep: 15 minutes
Serves: 6-8 (Depends how you serve it. It’ll go farther on sandwiches.)
6 organic chicken breasts, grilled (organic chicken breasts typically are quite a bit smaller than the huge, non-organic because of the lack of hormones. So keep that in mind)
5-6 green onions, diced
1 package bacon
2 avocados, cubed
2-3 tablespoons organic or homemade mayo
salt and pepper to taste
-Preheat oven to 400 and bake bacon on a cookie sheet until slightly crispy. When finished, transfer to a lined plate and blot excess grease. Finely chop.
-Grill the chicken (I used garlic, salt, pepper and onion. Pretty basic.) and let rest. Cube when cooled.
-Dice green onions and cube the avocado. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and add mayo. Start small and add more if you need to. I don’t put very much at all, as you can tell in the photo. Just enough to give it a little moisture. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sandwich buns or alone.
This is also really yummy leftovers, so it can be eaten at any temperature. Warm, cold or room temp.
As you know I like to take healthy Pinterest recipes and make them healthier!
I have a couple great tweaks!
1. bake the chicken you can add whatever spices to it to make you happy.
2. (Tweak) instead of bacon use turkey bacon. I used applewood farms
3. I diced up scallions and (tweak) I added fresh cilantro
4. Homemade Mayo or organic mayo is still mayo! You can dress up a turd it’s still a turd! (Tweak) I made a healthy dressing! Take a cup of plain greek yogurt add in powered ranch dressing.
5. Cube up 2 avocados.
Mix everything up in a big bowl and use a big slotted spoon it’s much easier to mix that way!
Then I am going to make a healthy salad/spinach salad, add some vegetables and fresh mozzarella then top with the avocado chicken bacon salad mix and drizzle it with fig balsamic glaze.
Viola you are done and ready to enjoy with no guilt!
Stay tuned for the practical application!
Remember; like always if you make one of my recipes send me an email with your practical application and pictures and I’ll post it! Feel free to comment also!
You know I can’t just copy a recipe on Pinterest! I have to alter it to make it more healthy and delicious!
Instead of bacon I will use Turkey Apple Sausage with Gouda. Instead of Queso Fresco I will use Ricotta Salata I got at whole foods. It crumbles nicely and the sheep’s milk is nice!
For bread I got a low carb, gluten free flatbread for me and a whole wheat pita for my wife.
I will probably add sweet red peppers and a dash cayenne pepper to hers and straight up hot sauce to mine. Probably Trinidad Scorpion Pepper sauce!
Stay tuned for the practical application

Half a lime is too much! I used a half a lime on all 4 pizzas. Also eating it like a pizza is hard! We ate it like a taco.
It was awesome however!
This was awesome! I soooo enjoyed it! I would continue to play around with the different crumbled cheeses, possibly Feta, Ricotta Salata or Queso Fresco.
Do you know any other cheese that crumbles and would be great on top? If so please tell us!
Play around with the toppings and create a new meal every time!
Play around with the meat: possibly bacon, turkey bacon, sausage, turkey sausage, lump crab meat, ground beef etc…
Next time I would add cilantro and lime juice. I love fresh cilantro!
Give these Tilapia Cakes a try, you wont regret it!
1/2 teaspoon Mustard
1 cup Egg White
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tbsp chopped Onions
2 tbsp Sweet Red Peppers
1 serving (serving = 4 oz) Wal-Mart Tilapia Fillets
Heat a non skillet pan and cook tilapia for 3 min each side until flaky. Then shred tilapia in a bowl and add in all other ingredients. Once mixed together form in balls and brown in the pan for 3 minutes on each side. Top with 1 tsp mustard!

I say screw only sweet peppers! Add Cayenne pepper and possibly Dave’s or Blair’s hot sauce for the ultra hot kick! In addition to the sweet peppers and other ingredients. Add the hot sauce to the tsp of mustard to make a spicy sauce!

In honor of Cevich here is a delicious Ceviche Recipe for Ceviche Tacos – for a healthy low carb meal substitute a small salad for the Tortillas!
They give the nutritional value but I think it’s for the whole recipe with the 12 tortillas so it is skewed! Eliminate the Tortillas and who would eat 12 tortillas in one sitting, even I wouldn’t do that on a cheat day!
I can’t wait to try this! Stay tuned!
