This is a super easy salad to whip up using leftover chicken (turkey works too). I love to eat this salad for lunch! Avocado is full of tons of healthy fats and is highly satiating, which gives you the energy to work through the rest of your day. Eating this salad for lunch will help you avoid that post-lunch energy crash because it is high in protein and fat, while low in carbohydrates (a likely culprit of the crash). Romaine lettuce is also high in chromium, a natural blood sugar stabilizer!
