BLT salad

blt salad

I will admit it's not just bacon, lettuce and tomato, so it's more like BLTEA adding the egg and avocado, but this salad is a super satisfying lunch, especially if you are on a diet. As part of the JP Fitness 2012 fat loss challenge, I have slightly decreased my intake and I am constantly coming up with high volume, nutrient dense and satisfying meals. This has been one of my go-to meals, especially since leftover bacon is something we often have in the fridge. I hope you do too!

For 2 servings, you need:
1 medium head lettuce (we had iceberg, but anything works, including spinach and arugula)
2 tomatoes
1/2 avocado
2 hard boiled eggs
4 slices cooked crispy bacon (ideally left over from breakfast)
black pepper to taste
1 tbsp sour cream and 1 tbsp mustard for dressing (optional)

Cut up the lettuce, toss with the tomatoes, cut in large pieces, and the cubed avocado. Arrange in a deep bowl and cover with the cut up eggs and bacon strips. Add a dash of black pepper and if you wish, finish with a dressing made by combining sour cream and mustard. Enjoy this salad as lunch or a late day snack, it's barely 270 calories per serving including the dressing.

  2. I thought you'd like it. I bet it would be much better with spinach, too!
