Chicken Avocado Chickpea Salad

I’ve been trying to cut out as many carbs as possible these past few weeks, because swimsuit season is right around the corner and I have to keep up with my buff partner.

He’s been hitting the gym a lot these past few month and since I pretty much just walk the dogs to stay in shape. I knew I had to do a bit more now that I’m no longer in my 20’s anymore and the weight just seems to keep creeping up onto me now much faster.

Chicken Avocado Chickpea Salad

So I created this salad and have been eating it every other day for lunch and even making a few meal preps. It’s one of those guilt free yet so oh so satisfying salads that is sure to help anyone stay on track towards obtaining or maintaining those summer fitness goals.

Also I’m sure that if you brought this over to some kind of summer gathering this year, it would be gone in no time. And of course it’s up to you if you want to share the recipe 🙂 Chicken Avocado Chickpea Salad

So if your looking to slim down a bit as well this summer then you are going to want to eat this salad as often as possible too. Plus it’s super healthy for you so go ahead and make a few meal preps while your at it. Chicken Avocado Chickpea Salad

Packed with just enough protein and healthy fats to make it a meal or great as a side dish too. I hope you enjoy!

Note: If you can’t get your hands on “Szeged chicken rub” you can replace it with Garlic Powder, Basil, Paprika, Oregano and some salt.
