I’ve never been a huge fan of salads. I’m trying to include them in my daily meals, so I can get all the nutrients and fiber my body needs. Eating super low-carb/ ketogenic style is a part of my life now. I would never go back to stuffing my face in carbs and feeling so heavy and miserable.
I wanted to share with you one of my favorite salads. It brings me a summerish fresh feeling. It’s really easy and fast to make. Homemade salad it’s a lot healthier and cheaper than the restaurants versions. I mean, you know exactly what ingredients you are putting in, but what’s more important is the quantity.
So remember, in keto, to be healthy, the quality and quantity of the food matters the most. So, grab the ingredients and make my low carb chicken salad. It’s delicious, super healthy and filling.
You don’t have to be a master chef to cook healthy. You just have to care about your health. Make this change. One day you will see the difference. Try to eat salads as often as possible!!
Stay away from the salad dressing you buy from the store. It might have a lot of ingredients that you can’t even pronounce, lot of sugar and plenty health harming chemicals. Go simple and homemade.
