It's getting warmer and the days are getting longer, yay!  It's time to start getting more healthy, working out and eating lighter foods.  I don't about you, but when it's super warm outside, I don't want to have to do a lot of cooking.  I don't want to spend an hour over the hot stove or have the oven going.  I also don't love having really big and heavy meals.  I love having a nice and light meal.  And of course I like nice and easy meals that don't take much time to cook.  Here is a great, healthy meal.  chicken pasta salad
The chicken that I used in the pasta is Tyson Grilled and Ready chicken.  This stuff is awesome.  It's comes in several different flavors, refrigerated or frozen.  All of them looked so yummy, I decided to get the regular, southwestern and chicken fajitas.  For my whole Walmart shopping experience, go here.

I love pasta salad, it's so yummy, fresh and easy to make.  These are the ingredients that I used:
Regular Tyson Grilled And Ready chicken
 Pasta.  I used Rotini.  I mixed the garden and whole wheat.  I used about a full box
Grape tomatoes
1 cup Italian dressing.  I used fat free to make it more healthy.
1 cucumber, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1 can olives

The chicken is so easy to cook.  Just throw it in a skillet and heat it up for 3 to 5 minutes.  I love that it's #GrilledandReady.

I cut up all of the veggies and then mixed all the ingredients in a large bowl.  Chill for an hour before serving.

I put a little Parmesan cheese on it.

It was so great!  It was great to leave the dinner table full but not feeling like I ate too much.  I love eating well and healthy!
