Low Carb Lunch Idea: Rainbow Grilled Chicken Salad

Today I’m going to share with you my most favorite salad recipe- the Rainbow Salad.

It’s a low-carb recipe full of nutrition and protein loaded. I make it all the time as my lunch at work through the week.

Here’s the recipe:


– 2 cups of Spinach

– ½ cup of sliced cucumbers

– ½ cup of chopped small bell peppers (I like to mix with red, yellow and orange color)

– 1/4 cup of blueberries

– 1/4 cup of raspberries

– 1/4 cup of blackberries

– 1/2 cup of diced grilled chicken

– ½ tbsp of balsamic vinaigrette (check out this organic paleo approved balsamic vinaigrette)

Total calories: 276

Total protein: 21g

Total carbs: 9g

You can always add in more chicken and reduce the amount of berries. It’s totally up to you.

I don’t care about adding cheese into my salad. If you are looking for more protein, definitely add cheese into it. 😊

Give it a try and let me know what you think of it.

Let’s keep eating healthy and live healthy!
