After almost 5 months I am still having trouble losing that baby weight. I have started eating more salads, not just with dinner, but for lunch too. After something like a million salads they are getting kind of boring. Today I decided to take the initiative and make a really tasty, colorful salad. It was easy to make, incorporated leftovers, was quick to make and filling too. Since I am doing Weight Watchers I have to watch my points. All told this salad was 7 points before adding dressing. If I used chicken breast instead of thighs it would’ve been less, but I used what was already in the house.
A Big Lunch Salad (7 weight watchers points)
3 C. chopped Romaine lettuce
1/4 Orange bell pepper
1/4 C. cucumber chopped
1/8 C. grape tomatoes cut in to quarters
1/2 oz. French feta (any feta will do it’s just my favorite)
1/2 oz. dried cranberries
2 1/2 oz chicken thighs sliced
Cover a plate with chopped lettuce. Layer veggies over lettuce. Topped the salad off with the feta, cranberries and chicken. Measure out dressing of choice if you’re on Weight Watchers.
Weight Watchers tip: Measure dressing and put in side dish, then dip the fork tines in to the dressing before the salad.
