Getting tired of your regular lunch meal? How about trying something healthy yet filling? Grilled Chicken Salad is conceivably the best lunch meal that I had this week. Unlike other salad recipes that leaves me hungry after a few hours; this healthy salad recipe made me enjoy lunch while staying focus and satisfied almost until dinner time.
Hey, I know that I mentioned several times that I am a certified carnivore. I still am; however, sometimes there are occasions wherein I need to try a much healthier alternative (that also tastes good, coincidentally).
I am not forcing anyone to eat some grass; I’m simply saying that we should give our body some time to recuperate by eating healthy foods. Of course, Lechon Kawali and Bulalo are two of the all-time best Filipino food (in my opinion). I enjoy eating them and I won’t stop serving them in our dining table. But, what about skipping fatty foods for at least a day or two per week? I’m sure that you will feel better after doing that.
