"It's NOT just about the food....it's personal!"

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Is a super delicious, nutritious, filling and slightly decadent lunch (or dinner) option.

What takes it over the top from being a healthy choice are the anchovies and the mayo in the dressing.  So, we’ve eliminated them here, but the awesome taste remains.  Oh yeah, the croutons have been eliminated too, sorry!

You could however, add in cucumber, carrot and some red onion if you’re looking to amp up the flavor just a little.  Plus, hey more veggies is a good thing!

This recipe is the day six (6) lunch main dish recipe of my 7-Day Meal Plan program. I created the program because after researching the meal plan program provided by a recognized authority on diabetes, I was appalled at the ingredients and nutrition values.
