If you’re not following @rosalierouge go change that ASAP! Not only does Kelsey post tons of great recipe ideas, but she blogs about amazing beauty products and fashion items, too. We fell in love with her Crispy Chicken Ranch Salad recipe (copied for you below)! 

This spinach salad is SUPER easy to make, especially once you have the chicken and chickpeas prepped. You can heat it up throughout the week, or eat it cold, and regardless, it tastes amazing with the dressing. I like to add in some couscous to add in some healthy and filling carbs. This salad would also be amazing with tomatoes, but sadly I was out.

Coming at ya with a super quick and easy lunch or dinner recipe. This came about one day when I decided to whip up a super simple salad for lunch and top it with one of my chicken cutlets that I have been making for years! When I create a meal, I try my best to make sure that it has a healthy balance of fats, carbs, proteins, AND veggies. I find that this winning combo keeps me full and away from mindless snacking.
