The Whatever-I-Had-Left-in-My-Fridge Cobb Salad

I’m going home for five days over Thanksgiving, and that means the last few days I’ve been trying to eat as much produce as possible so that it doesn’t all go bad while I’m gone. It also means I’ve had to go with some unconventional combinations as I’ve been trying to use up some ingredients while running out of others.

Today’s lunch was a great example of that, where I decided that I needed to make a salad to use up my kale, and then saw my hard boiled eggs and bacon and settled on a cobb salad. Except that I was missing a whole bunch of the things that cobb salads generally have, including dressing. So I got a little creative, pulled together a bunch of random things I had in my fridge that seemed appropriate, and then Googled cobb salad dressings and combined¬†a few recipes to make my own. The good news is it was yummy, and only 343 calories! So now I share my unconventional cobb salad with you:

Open-Faced Apple Chicken Omelette

I had another busy weekend full of cooking!¬†This time, though, the results were substantially healthier. Which is good. Cause now that my week of exercise and nutrition break is over (I kicked off the beginning of my return to healthiness with a 6.3 mile run Saturday morning), it’s time to get serious again.

So speaking of getting serious, omelets are a really great healthy breakfast because they’re filling, adjustable in size, easily modified for lots of variations, relatively easy to make, and (depending on what you put in them) very nutritious! I actually almost feel silly giving a recipe because omelets are so easy that really all I probably need to do is say “hey, make an omelette and put this stuff on it.” But alas, I will provide the entire recipe anyway. Here’s mine:

Healthy, Easy, and Delicious Chicken Avocado Melt

I originally intended to write a post about nutrition today, but then I made this amazing creation for dinner last night and it was so delicious that I felt it would be a crime against humanity not to share it, so here it is. Nutrition will have to wait until Friday.

This was honestly one of those most amazing things I have ever cooked. I ate everything you see in that picture above and as soon as I finished it I was both stuffed and disappointed that I couldn’t eat more. If I’d had another avocado I probably would have made more. AND it only took like twenty minutes to make, start to finish. PLUS for one of the chicken breasts you see in that picture it’s only about 300 calories. Amazing.

But enough talking. Here’s the recipe:
