Grilled Chicken with Zucchini, Corn & Tomato Salad

Grilled Chicken with Zucchini, Corn & Tomato Salad:

It’s time to rise up, stand up and take control! That’s my new theme and I’m loving it! The kids are ending school this week and they’re so ready (as well as I am) to relax and kick back a little. It’s been a grind year but I feel good to be able to grind it out. Life is about growth and we can only grow with new experiences so I strive to experiment with all types of foods as well as being open to all the new experiences that come my way. Let’s appreciate the good things and take the not so good things with stride.

Since I’m hardcore working out, I’ve been cooking my Grilled Chicken with Zucchini, Corn and Tomato Salad recipe at least twice a week. I grill everything on my indoor grill or if it’s this time of year on our outside grill and top it all off with a homemade ranch dressing. Yummy & delicious….

Rise Up and Stand Up…
