In less than a month, unless I am really overdue, I will be having a baby! YAY…and YIKES! I am excited, but I am starting to get nervous. I know this is my second time around, I should be a pro, but you really can’t plan for your labor and delivery…and since I am a planner, this makes me nervous! I wish I knew exactly what day and time this baby was going to make an appearance. That would make me feel much better. I have my due date circled on the calendar, but we all know that date doesn’t mean anything.

Luckily, I am extremely busy and don’t have too much time to worry. My to do list is a mile long, but I always make time for good food. I am not one of those people who forget to eat when they are busy, especially when I am pregnant. Food always comes first! This week, I made a Chickpea, Pesto, Tomato, and Mozzarella Salad for lunch and it hit the spot.

When I am busy and short on time, I like to make salads for lunch. Tossing a salad together is easy and healthy. I also love getting creative with my salads. I never get bored with my lunch salads because I am always combining new ingredients.

Chickpeas are one of my favorite salad ingredients. I love me some chickpeas! For this salad, I mixed together chickpeas, pesto, tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella cheese. It seriously took me ten minutes max to make this salad. Thankfully, we had some Spinach Basil Pesto in the freezer. You can also use store bought pesto if you don’t want to make your own. I highly recommend our pesto recipe though:) Just make a big batch so you can put some in the freezer for next time! You will want to make this salad again and again:)

If you are busy and don’t think you have time for a healthy meal, think again. This Chickpea, Pesto, Tomato, and Mozzarella Salad is easy peasy! It is great for lunch, dinner, or summer potlucks!

I know this quick and easy salad will be a staple for me after the baby comes…whenever that may be! If any of you are good at guessing due dates, please let me know when our little guy will arrive. I really want to know:)
