{Chicken salad sandwich w. almonds}

Thought I'd share the yummy lunch I had today.

Chicken salad sandwich with almonds
What you'll need:
1 can shredded chicken
1 tbsp fat free mayo
approx. 10 raw almonds
1 whole wheat bagel thin or 1 slice whole wheat bread

1. Put one serving of the chicken into a small bowl & add 1 tbsp of FF (fat free) mayo.
*The cans of chicken I get at Costco have about 3 servings
2. Chop up almonds
*I buy the huge bags of raw unsalted whole almonds from Costco, they are a great healthy item to have around.
3. Spoon chicken salad onto bread & top with almonds
*The reason I recommend eating them open faced is because you want to keep a good balance of protein & carbs. So (1) slice of WW (whole wheat) bread -OR- (1) whole WW bagel thin
Sprinkle the top with some ground pepper

Side with a handful of baby carrots & a tall class of H2O & you've got yourself one healthy, balanced, delicious lunch! Enjoy!

  1. Hi Rachael, I just found your blog through a friend on facebook. I can say that I've shared a lot of the same story as you. I am pregnant with my third child and with each one I've gotten bigger and bigger. I'm hoping to keep that from happening this time. I'm really interested in your blog, thanks for starting it. I'm definitely going to check out those cookbooks :))
