My husband and I made a trip over to the mall to visit our newest obsession Teavana. I will be telling you all about that in a future entry. We happened to run across Wildflower Bread Company on our way home from Teavana. I had never been, and my starving husband said come on lets give it a try. I figured I would play it safe and get a salad. One that will hopefully work with my diet. My eye was drawn to the Chicken Pistachio Pomegranate. It looked like it had all the right ingredients, low fat, low sugar, etc. so I went with my first instinct and ordered it.
|My version of Wildflowers Chicken Pomegranate Salad less than 300 calories|
This salad was so good I went back for it everyday the next few days. I finally decide to check the stats and didnt like it as much anymore. See for yourself here nutrition info I found 360 calories of the total 665 total calories that were unnecessary. I was able to save 190 calories just by omitting the dressing and I had never heard of Vienna before so I called one of the local Wildflower store managers and asked about the ingredients specifically the Vienna for 160 calories....what is that? He said he didn't know anything about it and hadn't even heard of it before. He ran down the ingredients and listed everything but the Vienna.
Regardless of what Vienna is I don't need the extra calories and I figured I could save myself a ton of money and calories making this myself so I gave it a try and YUM! I wont be back to Wildflower very soon not that they aren't any good but you know what I mean.
Wildflower Bread Companies Chicken Pistachio Pomegranate salad was very easy to lighten up without losing any taste
|adds lots of flavor without calories|
- 1/4 c shredded red cabbage
- 1/4 c shredded green cabbage
- 1/4 c diced red onion
- 1/4 c diced red bell pepper
- 1/2 ounce fat free feta
- 2 big handfuls of arugula
- 4 ounces grilled chicken breast
- Pomegranate infused red wine vinegar to taste
- diced oranges
- and if you are a rebel a couple teaspoons of crushed up Pistachio nut meat and a couple Kalamata olives (if not rebel save it for P3 because it really makes the salad taste amazing)
Measurements above are approximate. Add more or less depending on your tastes. Just don't be afraid to try it. I have never eaten raw red or green cabbage before this salad in fact I have never voluntarily eaten a raw red pepper before this either. When I ordered the salad I had no idea it had all this funny stuff in it. I have never been into any of these veggies before but this is amazing and you must put down the Mc Nuggets and try it!
