If you ever want to know whether Shawn or I did the load of laundry, just count how many dryer sheets there are.

When I do the laundry, I’ll use 1 dryer sheet. Maybe 2 if it’s our sheets or towels and I want them extra soft and fluffy.

If Shawn does the laundry, he uses basically the entire box of dryer sheets.

Or at least it feels like that. He just reaches in and grabs a big ‘ole stack. I’ve counted 8 dryer sheets in a load before. He’s so funny. That guy loves using dryer sheets.

I shouldn’t be complaining. He helps with the laundry, which makes him the greatest husband ever.

And I make Shawn this delicious and pretty paleo strawberry mango salad for dinner, and he certainly isn’t complaining.

Which is a BIG deal, because whenever Shawn asks “What’s for dinner?”, and I answer “salad” he usually says, “Hmmm…what else could you make for dinner.” He’s a meat and potatoes guy.

When I put this paleo strawberry mango salad out for dinner he seemed a little unenthusiastic, until he took his first bite. He ate it up, and went back for seconds. It is so good! Sweet strawberries and mango, creamy avocado, crunchy almonds, juicy chicken, and topped with my paleo strawberry poppyseed dressing.

Not only is this strawberry mango salad pretty and delicious, but it’s so healthy! Paleo, gluten free, dairy free and low calorie. If you leave the chicken off, it’s vegan too! A great lunch or dinner.

  1. In a large salad bowl, combine all the ingredients. Top with desired amount of dressing, and toss. Serve immediately.

Notes

-I like roasting my chicken breasts in the oven when making them for salads. Roasting them keeps them juicy and full of flavor! Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper, roast at 425 until the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees, usually around 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
