Sweet Basil Balsamic Chicken 2x and More Kaia Foods!

Sweet Basil Balsamic Chicken
I used to just eat balsamic vinegar and olive oil all over everything to make it good, but it's been so long! I wanted to step up my Chicken Balsamico, so this time did things slightly differently, and am glad I did. Wanted my chicken breast grilled, so first browned both sides of the chicken in a grill pan with olive oil on med-high, salt, pepper, and dried basil, then added garlic, onions, beets, and finally once cooked enough I added a Balsamic mixture to sizzle for a minute. #1 The addition of a little Agave sweetens it up nicely. Goes perfectly with brown rice, toasted Pine Nuts, and a Balsamic and Olive Oil Salad complete with fresh Basil and Heirloom Tomatoes. Balsamic is back!

Basil Balsamic Revisited
If only you knew how many meals I go into thinking, i'll just get some stuff together, I don't feel like making anything blog worthy, but end up with something pretty sweet. Like this! I just wanted to get fed with plenty of nutritious foods from the fridge but it ended up so tasty and colorful I had to post. Simply the same Chicken, but then combined with a salad, sweet potato, and awesome Romanesco Broccoli. #2 Romanesco Broccoli is epic! Steamed and enjoyed perfectly fine plain but also with Creamy Woodlands Deli Hummus, truly the best kind! Also on the chicken!

Received a sample pack to test out the other day after loving the Date Spice Buckwheat Granola. Today brings the Cherry Pie version. Holy Wow! When I popped open the bag I got an explosion of cherry pie flavor.  I was stoked to look inside and see tons of high quality delicious dried cherries forming epic clumps of granola just like the dates in the date-spice.  Did I mention it tastes just like cherry pie? It must be the lemon, ginger, and vanilla.  Here it was delicious with my yogurt and fresh fruit added, but of course I dove into the bag and ate some plain initially. So good by itself I would definitely consider it dangerous. Nutritionally this one is the least caloric for the same serving but also has less protein, so I paired it with ~6oz of my homemade blueberry yogurt.  A good option if you like cherries and are trying to eat less calories, or enjoy eating a larger quantity for the same calories! #3 But still a nutritious much better for you granola because it's raw sprouted buckwheat and not oil baked oats!
-70g Cherry Pie Buckwheat Granola
-6 oz Blueberry Yogurt (Homemade)
-Kiwi and Blueberries
