Salad Nutrition Info:
Chicken: Great lean protein source. Chicken breasts are also a very good source of selenium, phosphorus, vitamin B6, and niacin.
Egg: One egg has only 75 calories and 7 grams of high-quality protein, 5 grams of fat, and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, along with iron, vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids. The egg is a powerhouse of disease-fighting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin.
Avocado: heart healthy fat with tons of vitamins and minerals! Who doesn’t love all the avocado benefits? The creamy delicious texture changes up the salad too. However, go easy on the serving size since bacon and eggs also contain fat.
Red Wine Vinegar: Great dressing, marinade, flavoring option very low in calories. It also has antioxidants! I like my red wine vinegar dressing a but sweeter and added a touch of honey however, it’s good without it!
