No Carb Keto Chicken Salad

These have become my new all-time favorite mixing bowls.  So durable, handy, and affordable.  I can’t believe I’m so excited over bowls!

I’ve always counted macros and have always tried to avoid high-fat foods, but I have pretty much been eating the same exact food since 2009, and I think my body was just over it!I decided it was time to try something new and have several gym friends who rave about Keto, so I’m trying it out.

So far I love it, I feel amazing, but I’m only a week in so too soon to really tell. I love the new foods and recipes I’m able to add into my daily meal plan and figured I’d share one of my new favorite discoveries!

My own Keto Chicken Salad! Now me being me although I’m supposed to be eating fatty foods I refuse to overload on saturated fats, which is why I love Trader Joes Organic Mayo. It has 11g of fat a serving, but 8.5g of those are polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, healthy fats instead of saturated fat. All the ingredients are less processed and contain no added sweeteners, but it actually tastes like traditional real mayonnaise

 

Ingredients

Makes 7 servings (111g is one serving)

 

1.3 lbs of Chicken (about 3-4 chicken breasts)

7 Tablespoons of Trader Joes Organic Mayonnaise

2-3 Stalks Celery

2 -3 Table spoons Red Onion

Salt

Pepper

Garlic Powder

 

Directions

 

Bake chicken and cut into small pieces

Dice celery and onion

Combine chicken, mayo, celery and red onion

Add salt pepper and garlic to taste

 

You could easily add crumbled bacon, or cashews, or even mix in a little curry powder to the mayo. I love to roast chicken pieces ahead of time, but you can also easily purchase a rotisserie chicken from your local supermarket and use that instead.   Either way, this chicken salad is so tasty and can also be adjusted to fit your favorite tastes.
