Greek Chicken Salad

Life gets so busy that most of the time I am not sure what day it is, much less know what I’m cooking for dinner. Anytime I am in a hurry and need a healthy and nutritious meal, I always whip up a Grilled Greek Chicken Salad that is not only satisfying but also Whole30, Paleo and Keto compliant.

Greek Chicken Salad

To make this meal even faster, during Sunday meal prep I will usually make 3 or 4 chicken breast to throw in the fridge to make for easy grab and go meals. If I know it’s going to be a crazy week I will make sure to prep a few different protein options at the beginning of the week to throw on top of a salad.

Greek Chicken Salad

For this easy salad I simply mix greens with artichokes, olives, red onions, tomatoes, banana peppers, seasoned chicken breast and tossed in an easy Greek olive oil dressing. I usually plan to make enough servings to use for the next day’s lunch for both me and my husband.

On those busy and exhausting nights when you are 5.2 seconds away from driving to Sonic and ordering a foot long chili dog, take a deep breath and whip together this savory and easy salad. This meal is always my backup plan when dinner plans fall through and I need to make something healthy in a flash!

Remember, you can choose to be healthy even on the nights you are tired and don’t feel like cooking a 5 star meal. Don’t fall into the habit of using fast food as a backup plan when you don’t “feel like” cooking. Stock your fridge with precooked meal prep options such as chicken and boiled eggs that will serve as easy grab and go meals.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

✨Pickle Boats✨
2 @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouches
2 tablespoons mayo
2 tablespoons red onion chopped
salt/pepper
2 large pickles, sliced lengthwise 

Using a spoon, scoop out the seeds to create boats. Mix the tuna together with the mayo and red onions. Fill each pickle with the tuna.

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
