we often neglect another type of water in our diet, nutritious water
found in food. Only
certain foods are high in water, be sure to eat plenty of them. Here
is a list of common foods and their respective water content.

Grilled Chicken and Pasta Salad
By: Ann Marie Lockwood
"This salad is very filling and is used as a meal in my home. Everyone
always loves it! It is also quick and easy. Note: I have also added
olives, hard boiled eggs, and red bell pepper to this salad. Enjoy with
your favorite dressing!" Original recipe yield: 4 servings.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
steak seasoning to taste
8 ounces rotini pasta
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, cubed
1 red onion, chopped
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
6 cherry tomatoes, chopped
Preheat the grill for high heat. Season both sides of chicken breast
halves with steak seasoning. Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill chicken
6 to 8 minutes per side, or until juices run clear. Remove from heat,
cool, and cut into strips. Meanwhile, place the rotini pasta in a large
pot of lightly salted boiling water. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al
dente. Drain, and rinse with cold water to cool. In a large bowl, mix
together the cheese, onion, lettuce, and tomatoes. Toss with the cooled
chicken and pasta to serve.
