2 Healthy Broccoli & Chicken Salads

I love making cold salads so I can eat healthy on the go, without the need of a microwave. Since I’m trying to limit carbs and boost protein, I decided to add chicken to some traditional salads. Here are 2 broccoli salads I made this week.

Thai Chicken & Broccoli Salad

1/2 pound chopped broccoli

1/4 cup PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
1 cup chopped cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons freshly crushed ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce

Mix all the ingredients (except the chicken and broccoli) together in a pan over a stove until it is blended nicely. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and shredded chicken and toss until mixture is covered completely.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of

    tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
