When I started flexible dieting you wouldn’t catch me DEAD eating a salad.
Because you can TRULY eat foods you love with flexible dieting. Salads are NOT required if you’re trying to “get healthy” or lose weight.
The combo of hot chicken & hot air fried squash with sweet apple & cranberry cinnamon goat cheese is DIVINE.
You absolutely have to give it a try.
The dressing is also super easy & macro friendly!
It’s just 15g of balsamic vinegar (2-3 carbs aka 8-12 calories), 5g of dijon mustard, & a touch of calorie free pancake syrup.
Normally dressings like ranch or blue cheese can set you back hundreds of calories & make a “healthy” salad higher calorie than the hamburger you actually WANTED to eat!
In this recipe I air fried some delicata squash. I’ve only ever found it at Trader Joes, but I *hear* you can find it at some HEBs in Texas.
If you can’t find delicata squash then grab some pre-chopped butternut squash & sauté it in a pan with some garlic, salt, & rosemary for 10-15 minutes.
You’ll want to use a BIG bowl for this too! One serving of lettuce is actually giant 🙂 Volume win!
