High Carb Weekend – Low Carb Monday – Mango, Avocado, Chicken Salad YUM!

 

 

It’s hot here in southern California which mean NO ONE wants to turn on the stove!  This low carb recipe is also gluten free, dairy free, and AWESOME!     Use it as a great way to cut your carbs and drop that horrible water weight from those high carb days throughout the week and on the weekend.   Of course, I’ve altered this recipe a tad to make it more nutritious, but feel free to make your own version as well!

Ingredients In Low Carb Mango Avocado Chicken Salad

1 small head of lettuce, chopped  - I use power greens instead
1-2 cups shredded chicken – I uses boiled and shredded chicken
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 avocado, diced
1.2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions

1. Place power greens in a large bowl.

2. Place shredded chicken in a medium bowl and add a TINY bit of water to it (just to moisten it a bit). Microwave for 12-15 seconds. Mix in the chili powder and the cumin.

3. Add the chicken to the lettuce and top with diced mango and avocado.

4. Eat as-is, or top with a light dressing of choice!

 

This is SO SIMPLE !!!   Add it to your week and use it as a way to avoid the heat waves in your kitchen!   Feel free to add topping and change spices as you see fit!

    Didi,

    You need to eat non processed foods. Whole foods are the best option. I would stick to meats (that you cook yourself if possible), vegetables, fruits and whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, rolled oats, and beans.

    Remember that carbs should be under 150 grams a day. Fat I tell people to keep under 40 grams and calories will depend on your height. I would recommend using an app to log all your food so you can track your calories, carbs, fat and protein easily. I use “My Fitness Pal.”

    Hope this helps!
