When in doubt, take your favorite comfort food and make it into a salad! I’ve done this with pizza before, and there’s a plethora of recipes that employ this concept to make a big Mac or cheeseburger salad, but I can’t believe I never thought to try this one before!
All inspiration to this hot/cold salad (aka #MacroMicroBowl) credit goes to @Food_Lover_Linds! I saw her post something like this in her Instagram stories last week and tweaked a bit to make it my own! Give her a follow on Instagram for some other phenomenal and easy healthy recipes!
🌭 6oz spinach
🌭 2oz diced onion
🌭 2 hotdogs, cooked and sliced into coins (I used Hebrew National 97% fat free beef)
🌭 2 slices Velveeta
🌭 1 serving (8oz) turkey chili (I used Dashing Dish Copycat Wendy’s chili)
🌭 6oz yellow squash, diced and cooked
🌭 Pinch garlic salt
🥗 Toss spinach in a giant mixing bowl and sprinkle with garlic salt; toss to coat evenly.
🥗 Heat chili in the microwave (if starting with leftovers) and top with cheese. Stir some so cheese melts; spoon over spinach
🥗 Add hotdog coins.
🥗 Add cooked squash (I used a pinch of garlic salt when cooking it too).
🥗 Sprinkle with onion and enjoy!
❗️You can adjust ingredients to fit macros.
❗️I meal prepped this so I cooked the chili and squash in a big batch, then divided each day. I wait to cook the hotdogs each day when ready to serve the salad.
📌 Save for later and share with a friend who might want to try it!
PSA: My #MacroFriendly posts can be used as as ideas for those who use a #MindfulMacros approach (AKA not tracking, but structuring meals based on how their body responds best to protein, carbs, and fat) as well. This is the goal place for some to reach after they learn the ropes by tracking for a period of time. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to find your forever way to eat!
