You’ve just killed that workout! You ran, swam, cycled or lifted. Then here comes the “Rungries”. You need food – NOW! If you are anything like me, sometimes you need to grab lunch or dinner on the fly, but you still want it to be healthy and eat fresh. I feel good about my workouts and my healthy lifestyle and want to feel good about the food choices I make as well.
I am loving how good the fruit is this summer and recently starting making salads with fruit mixed in. I still love my veggies, but fruit has just been calling my name this summer.
After my run the other day, I was thinking about what I was going to eat. I remembered that I had tried a great Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad at Panera a few weeks ago with the girls and realized it was just down the street.
This salad is packed with romaine, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, oranges, pecans and chicken raised without antibiotics, which is just what I was looking for. I choose the fat-free poppyseed dressing on the side, which is free of artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and sweeteners. I like that I can get the salad without the chicken as well.
Satisfying and filling for under 350 calories and low in sodium as well! #PaneraGoodness
Next time I am going to try the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad with Gorgonzola, pecans & tomatoes and chicken raised without antibiotics with an apple balsamic dressing. I love the apple and cheese combo! (I will also be getting it without chicken.)
Do you like fruit in your salads? Have you checked out the salads at Panera lately?
