Eating a salad doesn’t have to mean sitting down to a big bowl of lettuce. It’s all about the balance between veggies, proteins, and good fats.
For this relatively healthy take on the classic Cobb salad, focus on the fact that you’re getting 60g of protein and only 17g of fat. It’s all in the proper ratio.
