Tonight's dinner was truly delicious! This low carb, healthy recipe is packed with nutrition and protein, but not calories or carbs: Turkey (or Chicken) Cobb Salad:
If you're like me and love Cobb Salad, you've ordered it in restaurants where it comes heaped with cheeses, bacon, eggs, avocado, and dressing to the tune of 1054 calories and 73 grams of fat (if you're at Red Robin and getting the grilled chicken version and 2 oz of Blue Cheese Dressing). Instead, you can have the filling and flavorful Cobb Salad above for less than 1/3 the calories and fat! Here's how:
Healthy Turkey (or Chicken) Cobb Salad
1 cup Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber
1/4 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup chopped tomatoes or halved cherry tomatoes
3 ounces of cold sliced turkey or chicken breast (I used low sodium deli turkey breast; turkey is our Superfood of the week)
1 hard boiled egg, quartered
3/4 ounce sliced avocado
0.8 ounces reduced fat shredded cheese (I used Kraft 2% Cheddar; 0.8 oz = just under 2 Tbsp shredded)
2 Tbsp reduced fat blue cheese crumbles
Layer everything on a plate and enjoy! This entire recipe contains:
If you want to get really decadent, you can add a slice of crisp crumbled bacon (40 calories) and a tablespoon of Marie's Lite Blue Cheese Dressing (35 calories) and still have a remarkable meal for only about 400 calories. Enjoy!
