Kale Chicken & Red Grape Salad

We all know it’s easy not to bother when it comes to cooking for one, but don’t fall into that trap, you deserve to be nourished! The beauty of this salad is it’s ease and of course, it’s taste :) To nail the easy party, there’s some prep involved. The best time to enjoy this salad is when you have some left over grilled chicken and some pre cooked quinoa in the fridge. Sometimes, if I’m making chicken for the kids, I’ll throw an extra fillet on knowing I have this salad to look forward to. As for the quinoa, it’s a handy option to have in the fridge to turn an otherwise ordinary salad into a heartier meal. The rest is simple, dressing takes two seconds, blanch some broccoli, toast some nuts and voila, you’ll be nourished with the perfect combination of good carbs, good fats and protein xx
