Here's another great recipe from Juli! Are you trying these out? If so, hopefully you're starting the realize that eating for performance and health can also taste really good. Post to comments how these meals are working for you!

Chick cash avo

Cashew Avocado Chicken Salad with Sweet Potato Fries


  • 4 cooked, boneless chicken breast halves, shredded
  • Avacado mayo**
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 avocado – peeled, pitted and diced
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a large bowl, mix the cooked chicken, avocado mayo, dill, cashews, and avocado. Season with salt and pepper. Cover, and chill in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.

**Avocado Mayo

  • 1/2 c avocado oil (find at whole foods)
  • 1 egg yolk (if you use local, pasture raised chicken eggs, you don’t have to worry about bacteria)
  • 1 t Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 t vinegar


Put the egg yolk, mustard and vinegar in the smallest bowl of your food processor. Start the blade running and slowly add the avocado oil. Slowly means–take spoonful of oil and add a single drop into the bowl of the food processor. Once that has combined, add another drop. You should start to see an emulsion forming. At this point, you can add the oil as a slow drizzle. Continue until all the oil is gone. The mayo is finished when it’s creamy and a little thick. All in all, it’ll take about 6 minutes.

Sweet Potatoes Fries (for your side dish)

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 egg white
  • any spices of your choice whether that be cinnamon, paprika, garlic salt, etc.


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees

2. Peel sweet potato(es)

3. Cut sweet potatoes into your favorite length and shape

4. Whisk together egg white(s) and spices until its frothy

5. Put cut sweet potatoes in  sealable bag with egg white mixtures and completely cover the sweet potatoes  with the mixture.

6. Lay sweet potatoes on a cooking tray lined with parchment paper. Spread them out evenly then spray some cooking spray on top.

7. Let them cook for 15 min., then pull them out and shuffle them around so they can cook for 15 more min. on the other side.

Wahhhlaaa! Delicious crispy fries

  1. I was talking to some folks about strategies for this upcoming challenge. One of the things I’ve gotten good at is making huge batches of things like this and I’ll eat it for multiple meals and snacks for several days in a row. You’re ready to be done with it after 3 or 4 days so when it’s gone you just make a batch of something else.

  2. Hey guys!! Thanks for posting my recipe 🙂 cashews are always delicious! And sweet potato fries, woooooo weeee they are yummy haha. But beware when making this meal, since it has avocado in it, its really only good for another day after you make it because they avocado gets super brown and the flavor changes a bit. This recipe wasn’t too big if you have a couple people eating it. Hope you guys like it! Miss you all

  3. Those sweet potato fries sound really good! I made a huge batch of Juli’s pork carnitas a couple weeks back and ate that almost every day for a week. Just added salsa and avocado, yummy!

  4. Made Juli’s Sweet Potato fries last night and they were a hit at our house! Thanks for the posts and its so helpful when I am running of ideas to look on here. They will be making lots of reappearances during our Paleo Challenge I’m sure!
