Try This Sonoma Style Chicken Salad Recipe to Boost Your Protein

Try This Sonoma Style Chicken Salad Recipe to Boost Your Protein

This is a new twist on my old curry chicken salad recipe and it's a favorite of mine and several of my clients. It's easy to prep for the entire week and is a great way to get in protein and healthy fat. I used walnuts and grapes in this version but you can also use almonds and apples. It's great on its own, as a topper to a salad or in a wrap as shown here. At 300 calories it packs 40g of protein and only 7 carbs per serving. Give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

Sarah's Roasted Veggies and Greek Yogurt Salad

Sarah's Roasted Veggies and Greek Yogurt Salad

My amazing client Sarah is a vegetarian meal prep all star! And she gets extra credit for this roasted eggplant, beet and cauliflower salad with spinach, almonds and Greek yogurt. The veggies can be roasted in a big batch and kept for the week and the salad can easily be tossed together at the office. This is a great way to get in your fibrous veggies and also a great way for vegetarians (and carnivores!) to get in ample protein (thanks to the Greek yogurt) and healthy fats (thanks to the almonds and olive oil). This recipe yields enough for 5-7 servings. Om nom nom!

Mom's Meatloaf Remixed

Mom's Meatloaf Remixed

Meatloaf has a bad reputation. Granted, the name "meatloaf" is kind of funky. But in my house, meatloaf is a weekly favorite. It's high in lean protein, low in saturated fat and very easy to make. It's perfect for dinners at home or lunches on the go. It lasts for several days in the fridge and can also be frozen. And it's f*cking delicious. Heat this up at work and your coworkers will drool over your shoulder while asking what smells so good. You'll be like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, But with meat. Settle down there, vegetarians. Sub the meat for tofu and the recipe still totally works.

Try This Instead of That... "Homemade" Burrito Bowl vs. Chipotle

Try This Instead of That... "Homemade" Burrito Bowl vs. Chipotle

I didn't set out to dis Chipotle with this post. I have tons of family, friends and clients who love Chipotle. And yes, I agree, it's a "better" option than a lot of fast food places. But the calories, carbs, saturated fat and sodium can quickly add up at Chipotle even when you customize your own burrito bowl there. So I offer you this "homemade" alternative which takes less than five minutes from start to finish to throw together (including the two minutes it takes to microwave) and has fewer calories, less fat, fewer carbs, WAY less sodium and more protein than Chipotle.
