This Grilled Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese is one of my favorite go to lunches.
As I set out on my “healthy lifestyle” I quickly began to realize that I needed to be able to have foods on hand that was quick for me to prepare and eat. I would find myself making the kiddos lunch and I would have what they were eating. While the majority of the time they eat a muffin, fruit salad or jelly sandwiches, that’s not what I needed to fuel my body. So I found myself just not eating. Which wasn’t good.
I would get the shakes, get bad headaches and just felt like crap after having worked out in the morning. I needed to come up with a way that fit into my SAHM lifestyle and allowed me to quickly make my own lunch while I was either preparing the kiddos lunch or while they ate their lunch. This Grilled Chicken Salad with Goat Cheese has become my go-to. Seriously it’s so easy and comes together quickly so that I can sit at the table with the littles while they eat their lunch.
Now this is kinda where Meal Planning comes into play! When I am grilling I’ll throw an extra piece or two of chicken on the grill and set aside in the refrigerator. Whether it’s marinated or has a seasoning on the chicken breast it makes for a great add on to any salad. Then when I need a quick and easy lunch I’ll pull out a handful of cherry tomatoes that I halved using two smalls salad plates, a few cucumbers, two handfuls of a Spring Salad Mix and goat cheese! I’ll drizzle on Garlic Expressions and a few croutons and I’m on my way to joining the little kids at the table for lunch!
