When you see the word, skinny, come running because you know it has got to be something that will help keep you slim and trim. So try this Skinny Chicken and Avocado Caesar Salad and see what you think.

Too often when we salad made with a creamy dressing or containing bacon we can be afraid to eat it, thinking that it is over loaded with calorie and fats. The trick, though, is in the balance. It is perfectly okay to eat some bacon, just not six pieces of it. And plenty of salad dressings are choc-a-bloc with good fats that you should consume to keep you healthy. This recipe contains avocadoes, good fats, Greek yogurt and Parmesan cheese. Each of these ingredients offers plenty of reasons to eat them.

Avocadoes are considered a super food because they contain so many valuable ingredients that contribute to our good health. One of the big things that avocadoes do for us in boost our ability to absorb other nutrients. They also contribute about 20 vitamins to our diet by themselves including vitamins C and E, minerals such as iron and potassium, and phytonutrients. This food is action packed and should form part of everyones regular diet. They are relatively cheap, can be put together in all kinds of ways, keep fairly well right on your kitchen counter, and make a great snack for your kids. What could be better?

Greek yogurt contains more protein than other yogurts. Yogurt, generally, is a great food loaded with calcium, magnesium and other vitamins and minerals. Read labels carefully for yogurts since there are so many varieties and choices and some may be overloaded with sugars and poor ingredients. On its own, though, a good yogurt is loaded with pro-biotics that contribute to good digestive health and plenty of other components that make it a great choice for quick breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Keep plenty in the fridge for your family.

These are just two of the ingredients that make up this super salad. It also contains chicken, a great source of protein and one that is lean in fat. Parmesan cheese is also a dairy product, one that is lower in fat than some cheeses, packs a real flavor punch, and doesnt take much to really bump up the flavor in a meal.
