This recipe is a great twist on the typical chicken salad wrap that you might have for lunch. I love the way fruit, which isn't traditionally found in a wrap, is incorporated.

Making your own pizza is fun. Instead of ordering pizza on a Friday night, I like to try different pizza recipes to keep things interesting. The asparagus pesto pizza is unique and doesn’t seem extremely unhealthy. The recipe even suggests wine pairings for those of you who are 21.

These frozen strawberries covered in yogurt are a delicious treat. We occasionally make these at work, and I admit that they are addicting. Luckily, they are nutritious too.
