I’m back, and hopefully better. Lots of things have changed since you’ve last heard from me and I’m here to share, share, share!
But first, lettuce talk about something much more important – this salad I made after Pilates.
Best thing about it was the flavor. Second best thing was the time it took to make it because well, we all need as much of that as possible.
I’ve started using canned chicken and I canned believe I have just been passing this under-glorified gift from God in the grocery store. It was made for those quick salads when you need that added protein. Let’s just say I now buy these from Sam’s Club and am never turning back. To cook it, I just drain the water, throw it on the stove with some olive oil, add some salt+pepper, and wait until it browns. THAT’S IT. Makes life exponentially easier and salads more tasteful and impressive.
While my chicken was browning, I grabbed a bag of pre-made salad (told you, super lazy), cut up 2 roma tomatoes, purple onion, cucumber, celery, cilantro for the fresh Mediterranean zing, a boiled egg, mashed avocado, a handful of almonds, crushed pecans, and some raisins.
Salads truly can be fulfilling and don’t have to be complicated like your Starbucks orders. Every meal you make does not have to be fancy or expensive to be flavorful and healthy, so leave your excuses at the door and make it work! YOU GOT THIS!
