Chickpea Mango Fusion Salad

I hope you had a weekend full of fun!

The highlight of our weekend–along with t-ball for Khaled, tennis class for me, and a bike race for my hubby–is moving to my new office. It’s in Herndon, VA, very close to Reston Town Center and Reston Hospital. The address is:

424 Herndon Pkwy, ste 116

Herndon, VA 20171

What I’ve enjoyed the most in the process is my family’s excitement and involvement in this move. My kids were moving stuff back and forth from the car to the office. Khaled (4), was so excited about being able to carry stuff (light in weight of course), because he’s ‘strong and eats healthy foods’ per his words. Both kids were happy to be in mama’s office!

Khaled even dressed up for the day!

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.

  1. Hello Nour,

    I just found your site – It looks lovely! the Mango Fusion Salad looks delicious! I’m looking forward to more of your posts. I adore Persian/Mid Eastern food; I hope you incorporate food from Jordan in your blogs and recipes. 🙂


  2. Wow!! What a great website. I accidently came upon it and am glad that I did. I will be back. Thank you for your healthy input.

  3. Mango and chickpeas? Sounds like a great combination. The picture already gives me a craving. I really like the ingredients you use because I’m really a big fan of Indian food, and this is very similar to what I usually love to eat.
