This healthy chicken salad and brown rice bowl is easy and a great well balanced meal you can prep ahead of time!
I am so excited to bring this recipe to you today! Earlier this week I went to T. Loft and I ordered their Chicken Salad and Brown Rice Bowl and I’ve literally thought about it all week. All. Week. It was SO good.
So, while this recipe was inspired by T. Loft, I knew I could make it at home and customize it to the perfect recipe to share for anyone looking for Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points recipes, or really, anyone wanting a well-balanced meal that is quite simply, delicious!
My favorite thing about this salad is that it is completely customizable.
You can add as much or as little as you want of every ingredient based on your dietary wants/needs. I am sharing what I prepared for myself, but feel free to play around with it a bit! Regardless, I think you are going to love it. It is fresh, easy to prepare and satisfying!
Meal planning is something I’m working on becoming better at, and this meal is the perfect meal to prep ahead of time! Here are a few reasons why…
- It’s delicious cold! Grab it out of the fridge and GO! No need for a microwave when it’s time for lunch! (These are my favorite glass containers to store leftovers in)
- It includes protein, carbs, fruit, vegetable and fat… so you are going to be fueled with a healthy meal!
- You can make it in under 20 minutes!
- Since it’s customizable you can make as much as you need for however many meals you want to prepare.
- Did I say it’s delicious, yet?!?
Having a meal ready to go in the fridge is always helpful for me to stay on track and makes healthier choices easier to make. Since I am home with my kids, I like when I can make a meal and have leftovers, or have something quick and easy for me to make for lunch.
I don’t enjoy cooking 3 meals every single day, so anytime I can maximize my time by preparing larger batches for leftovers I consider it a win!
