$33 keto challenge - day 2

For lunch today, I'm going super simple chicken salad.  Chopped romaine lettuce, half of a sliced cucumber, a little bit of the italian seasoning, and 5 ounces of thigh/leg meat.  I pulled all of the meat that I roasted yesterday and put it into a glass lock in the refrigerator.  It makes putting together a salad really easy.  Tonight, I'll chop up the romaine, and another cucumber the same way so everything is ready to go for tomorrow.  I'll bring some mayo along and use that as dressing at lunch time.


For dinner, I had more chicken.  Yay.  This time, I simply rubbed a tiny bit of oil so the seasoning would stick, and sprinkled on some of the new cajun spice I got from the dollar store.  While the chicken was cooking, I chopped up a couple stalks of celery and a green bell pepper to eat as a little salad.  I'm rationing my lettuce and cucumber for lunches at work.

After baking in a 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes, the chicken came out looking and tasting fantastic.  With a little mayo, a couple hard boiled eggs, and a dusting of cajun spice, dinner was served.  

I know I just wrote this recently, but it bears repeating: baking/roasting chicken with a simple spice mixture is unbelievably simple and tastes fantastic.  There is no reason the collective 'we' can't be eating healthy even while on a tight budget as long as we're able to buy these foods so cheap.  I have no excuses.  "We" have no excuses.
