mango salsa sandwich

This chicken, bacon and mango salsa sandwich screams summer and I’m dying for summer to arrive but spring hasn’t really sprung around here so summer feels like it’s a ways away.

It’s tough to think healthy especially when it’s cold and dreary outside but we have to make the effort. This is healthy comfort food (it does exist), which is exactly what I need at this time of year. This is my take on a healthy Bolognese sauce (a.k.a. as meat sauce at my house). It’s not a quick recipe but it is easy and it can be a total lifesaver because this is freezer friendly. Continue reading
