I knew it would happen one of these days and it finally did!

While at the She Streams conference this past weekend, I was able to spend some time talking to my friend, Stephanie (whom I met two years ago) and her boss, Lisa Druxman of Stroller Strides. I was well aware of who Lisa Druxman was as I actually looked into starting a Stroller Strides franchise when my daughter was an infant.

I also knew Lisa Druxman was into fitness and health but I tell ya, after we spent an hour talking Saturday night, I felt invigorated. To talk food philosophy, feeding kids AND have someone understand, agree and want to listen is so inspiring and encouraging. Plus, my sweet dance partner (long funny story) Stephanie also has this same food philosophy. Boo-Yah!

To them, I dedicate this salad. I can envision us sitting around a table with a Starbucks coffee and nibbling on this salad. Cheer Ladies!

This sounds delicious! I really like chickpeas and feta together, and adding pepitas for more crunch is a great idea.

Oooh this looks good! It will go on to my long list of lunches/dinners I simply must make! :)

Jennifer, this looks fabulous. I’m totally making it for the break-the-fast dinner after Yom kippur next weekend. It’s perfectly packed with everything you need and not too heavy. Plus it’s so easy to throw together quickly when you are starving! I’m going to put all the ingredients together beforehand so it’ll be super quick. Thank you!
