Lately I’ve found myself getting caught up in what I refer to as the “keto trap”. For me the “keto trap” was set up the day I went against every bit of conventional dieting wisdom I’d ever heard and accepted I could eat fat, to burn fat.
Then a few weeks later (who am I kidding… a few days later) I got lazy with planning ahead and ended up eating a lot of convenience keto foods (and by a lot I mean my diet almost exclusively consisted of meats and cheese). I go through cycles of getting caught in the “keto trap”, especially when life gets a little hectic. Sure, it’s extremely low carb to just eat salami and provolone and that may work for some people, but not for me.
I’ve got to have a ton of fresh veggies to feel my best, and this keto balsamic chicken salad is the perfect way to get in a large dose of veggies while still satisfying my love of meat and cheese.
The chicken is clearly the star of the salad, but it is surrounded by delicious vegetables and keto fan favorites feta and avocado. So I’m going to go out on a limb and compare this salad to The Avengers: Infinity War. The two have more in common than you think… They both have a star studded line-up, they both feature something green and awesome (avocado and the Hulk), and **spoiler alert** just like some of our beloved avengers this salad will be gone in a snap… Too soon?
Anyway back in this universe, vegetables are my super heroes – that may be the corniest sounding thing I’ve ever written, but in all seriousness I sometimes struggle with eating enough vegetables and if you’re in the same boat I hope this has given you a least a little inspiration on how to incorporate more leafy greens into your diet.
