With busy days, the necessity for easy and healthy lunch recipes that will keep me fueled and going become quite the necessity. I want to begin to share more of my lifestyle on the blog, and with that comes some of my go-to recipes. This particular recipe has been a favorite of mine for quite awhile. It is gluten free, paleo, whole 30 -- you name it, and it is probably absolutely acceptable for the diet (unless you're vegan or vegetarian, which in that case, you'll rarely see a meatless recipe from this carnivore!).
My ingredients are so simple -- I mean really, who can't put together a 5 ingredient salad?
1) handful of blueberries
2) 1/2 small avocado
3) 4 oz rotisserie chicken (no skin)
4) 1 medium hard-boiled egg
5) 2 cups+ romaine lettuce (or spinach)
This meal (according to My Fitness Pal) is packed with 38 grams of protein, 17 grams of fat (most of which is good fats), and 15 grams of carbs with around 350 calories. I don't even use dressing because the blueberries and avocado add such great flavor that it isn't needed!
You could always add any veggies or berries to this salad that you like, and for a few added calories, bacon is a pretty great addition to this salad as well.
