Do you remember when chicken caesar salad was on option on the menu at practically every restaurant you went to back in the day? Dry chicken, sad lettuce, too much cheese and dressing that was definitely not house made. This was considered the “diet” option and everyone went for it, including me but what were we thinking?
It’s a good thing that people more or less got over their love affair with the chicken caesar because I can tell you there are so many better options out there that deliver the same flavor except better and healthier.
Insert the glorious avocado! Did you know that this nutritious packed fruit makes an awesome replacement for eggs? It’s also full of the healthy fats, tons of vitamins and minerals, a good source of protein and it tastes good but I don’t really need to sell on avocados do I?
Yeah, I didn’t think I did but what I can do is sell you on taking a look at caesar salad again. You see this is the perfect meal to cook up on a busy weekday night. After a long day at work and then hitting the gym, you want to make those calories you burned off count but also a meal that tastes good and comes together quickly.
#WeekdaySupper is continuing our #ChooseDreams initiate with American Family Insurance and we have some great healthy recipes lined up for a fit lifestyle. There is no reason to give up taste for a healthful meal and this salad is chock full of good flavor.
Since I figured I was already going out of the caesar salad box anyway I couldn’t help but toss some perfectly ripe grape tomatoes into the mix. It is August and tomato season is here, I’ll find any excuse to eat them!
How do you keep a healthy fit lifestyle? Is it outdoor activities with your family like bike riding or daily walks? Do you go to the gym or take cardio classes?
