Warm Chicken Salad With Chili and Spinach

warm chicken spinach salad4It’s freezing cold outside here in Baltimore and, against all our wishes, we are all trapped in our homes for fear of losing digits if exposed to the elements.  One of the problems with being stuck inside is that boredom can lead to snacking and the snacks one eats when bored are not generally good for losing weight.  For that reason, it takes some thought and planning to find meals that will keep you warm and keep you healthy.  The key to staying in control is a small amount of forethought and a bit of determination.  To help you my wife found this gem of a recipe which is both nutritionally balanced in the right way (high protein, low carbs), easy to make, and a bit spicy to warm you up on the inside.  In fact, this recipe in my opinion has too few calories per serving as posted on their blog.  I would recommend having it serve one or two people and will calculate the nutrition facts as such.  The spicy part is optional for those of you who have tender taste buds.  This one comes from foodmanna.net so give them some love and check out their other recipes. Enjoy!
