LiveSTRONG with a Taste Of Yellow
I've run past Lance Armstrong in Austin. I've seen him in person at UT for a CNN Fit Nation tapping. I've heard the stories of his ego. My friends and I don't like him very much. But his foundation LiveSTRONG is huge.
You might not see a lot of yellow bracelets around anymore, but thousands come out for Armstong's Race event in Austin every fall. He is the man of cancer. He is the stand out. But if we look around, we'll see thousands others who have survived. They give hope to others fighting the battle currently.
I am lucky my mother has survived cancer. They caught it early and because it was in Stage 1, only surgery was needed. But she continues blood tests every 6 month to make sure it isn't back. Soon I will be doing the same as a precaution because doctors have told her I may have it one day, too. So I am a possible survivor.
So to celebrate the survivors, I have choosen to go away from the sweets like many others go to and make an entree. Rather a Lemon Chicken recipe I created last year. It consists of a few ingredients and its baked. An easy, healthy dinner. Perfect for one or many. Make it for the survivor in your life and let them know how much they mean to you.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place aluminum foil in baking dish. Pick fresh herbs or use dry. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper, top with herbs. Drizzle olive oil over and place lemon slices on top. Bake for about 45 minutes, let rest 5 minutes. Serve.
