This colorful chicken salad is perfect for lunch. I have been on the struggle bus with eating lunch lately. I’m not sure why, but either I get too busy and forget or I snack at the wrong time and then skip lunch and end up eating crap later in the day. Not so good.

I love chicken salad. It’s one of the reasons I started eating low carb. Chicken salad and cheese. Not together though, but maybe with the right cheese. If you’ve read most of my blog posts, I’m huge veggie person. I know many people think veggies have too many carbs. They do have some, and if you are on a zero carb diet or very low carb diet then most veggies are out. But I love veggies, especially bell peppers, and will continue to eat them, and be healthy.

So using the word fajita is a stretch. Fajitas are delicious and hot and come out steaming to your table at the Mexican restaurant. This is chicken salad with fajita seasoning. And I’m totally ok with that. It makes a tasty, low carb lunch. 

I always have shredded chicken breast in the fridge. It’s perfect to add to salads on the go. See how I make it HERE.
