  1. Carrie says:

    Yes, I think cooked chicken would be delicious in this salad to add some protein to it. You could use a rotisserie chicken and that would work great.

  2. Lora Miranda says:

    Can you add a protein to it, such as chicken?

  6. Carrie says:

    Thanks for your comment Jodi. We have a lot of great Keto meals on that are low in carbs and sugar. Just search Keto on the main page and it will pull them up.

    As far as cooking for one, I love freezing leftovers for a quick weeknight meal or lunch. I like to freeze leftovers in a silicone cupcake pan so I can freeze individual servings so you can easily defrost however you need for yourself or more if you are having company.

    We’re glad you’re here and please let us know if you need anything else. Thank you!
