The warmer weather is upon us (I hope, you never know in Upstate New York). I do not know about you but warmer weather for me means A LOT more SALADS!! Recently I made this concoction of a salad that is fresh to the taste and super easy to make. Whole foods with rich flavors and lots of healing components...
>>.Avocado . Lime . Chicken Rice Bowl Salad.<<
There are not many ingredients needed for this and you can do a bunch of different alterations. The best thing to do is on your meal prepping days (Sunday) have some of the items below already cut up and prepared (ie: grilled chicken, have some rice set)
1/2 Avocado, organic
1 Grilled Chicken Breast, free range
1/2 cup - 3/4 cup California Jasmine Rice, organic (I usually have 1-2 cups prepared and keep in the fridge for the week)
Jackson's Honest Sweet Potato Chips
Black Pepper & Sea Salt
If you do not have the rice already cooked, cook rice according to directions and let cool. Myself, I have some in the fridge for the week - its one of the only "grains" I eat occasionally. So in my case I heat mine up a bit, I do like to keep the rice somewhat cool since it is going in a "salad".
After my rice is ready, I chop up raw baby spinach and toss in along with pieces of grilled chicken. At this time i like to sprinkle my lime juice over, however you can do this step anytime you would like. I then add chopped cucumber, tomatoes, olives and any other vegetables you would like to throw in! I slice my 1/2 of avocado and place on top with a little sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper. I take a small handful of the Jackson's Honest sweet potato chips and crumble on top and you are ready to go!
This salad is a simple go to and super filling with >>.HEALTHY BENEFITS.<<
- Avocado's are an amazing healthy fat that is good for your brain and also gives you a little protein too!
- Jackson's Honest sweet potato chips is responsible company I stand by. They offer a chip that offers simple ingredients "non-GMO sweet potatoes, coconut oil, and sea salt" I take these chips with me when I am on the go and need a quick snack!
- Anything that has "baby spinach" is a good place to start ;) - do I need to say more?
- Jasmine Rice - there is a lot of info out there that brown rice is better than white rice. So why am I choosing white rice? Brown rice although has much more nutrients than white rice, thru its process has stripped its _____________ which is what helps you digest the nutrients it has. Therefore yes, it does have more nutrients however you do not have the capacity to digest them.
