It’s important to have a go-to meal that meets your nutritional needs — but also tastes great. That’s why I love this chicken salad recipe: it’s so easy to make, refreshing and allows you to hit all your macros. Plus, the spinach and almonds help satisfy your cravings for crunch, while the grapes and cranberries give you a little hint of sweetness. When you’re meal prepping, just be sure to keep the chicken salad separate from the bread until you’re ready to eat — I love toasting my bread too. Feel free to experiment with different seasonings, such as adding a tablespoon of dill to your yogurt mixture.
