Ginger Chicken and Sweet Pea Salad

Ginger Chicken and Sweet Pea Salad | www.thepeachkitchen.comI  declare September as my vegetable month.

You know, that month when I promise that most of the food that I’ll be cooking has vegetables in them.

I had a mental health check these past few days.. and I know most of what I’ve been eating are very unhealthy.

I need to change that.

But don’t get me wrong, I won’t give up my chocolates, cookies, cakes and deep fried pork bellies.

It’s just that I guess I need to eat less of them now..

I think Zucchini Chocolate Cake sprung from this kind of state of mind, hee.

Have your cake, your chocolate and your vegetable in one dish… LOL!

I’ll probably try making one  a few days from now…

what if peanutbutter♥ calls me sweet pea, instead of mahal {love}?

This recipe is a great recipe for South Beach Diet phase 1 because it’s low fat and it has no carbs.  It’s also nice to make even if you’re not on SBD because it tastes great. The original recipe called for snow peas and scallions but I saw some good-looking sweet peas and I want to check out what’s the difference.

..and you know what? THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!
