This meal is created from a delicious seasoning packet I bought this year at the Houston Nutcracker Market. It is from P.D.Q. Meals. Pretty Darn Quick is what I’m going with. I do not get commission from PDQ, just giving you link to find the product.
With the FASTer Way To Fat Loss I carb cycle, so on low carb days I omit the carbohydrates and go for the low carb – spaghetti squash. We also work on eliminating processed food – croissants. This salad would be divine on a croissant. I will have to plan this chicken salad on leg day – Saturdays to enjoy the croissant. We do not deprive ourselves from the food we love, we manage it and place it on days we work those large muscles groups.
