Scripture to help us remember why we need to take care of our bodies!

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. NLT

Chicken Shawarma Salad

Recipe from Eating Well that I tweaked a little;)

Stir together 1 cup cucumber (shredded), 1/4 cup low fat plain yogurt or non dairy veganaise, 3 TBSP Tahini, 2 Tbsp lemon juice and 1/4tsp salt.  Set aside.  This is the sauce you see on the top.

I took shredded chicken that I made in the crockpot earlier and put it in a fry pan and added 1Tbsp garlic powder, 1tsp curry powder, 1/2tsp pepper, 1/4tsp salt and a little olive oil and mixed it all up to coat the chicken. 

Option 2:  uncooked chicken:  Combine garlic powder, curry powder, pepper and tsp salt in a small bowl.  Slice chicken breast crosswise into 1/4 inch strips; toss with the spice mixture to coat.  Add oil and toss to combine.  Grill chicken turning once, until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.

Option 1:  Cut up romaine lettus and top off with chicken.  Add cucumber/yogurt sauce and some fresh tomatoes.

Option 2:  Take a pita and add the cucumber sauce to the bottom, add chicken, and top with lettus and tomato for a true Chicken Schwarma;)
