Summer time is my favorite for variations of chicken, tuna, shrimp and salmon salads. Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve patients should keep a stash of good recipes on hand for these types of meals.
Whether it’s a Classic Chicken Salad, a Greek Chicken Salad or a Balsamic Chicken Salad.…I love making a big batch of chicken and chopping it up for several types of no-cook meals. I’m HOT for all of July and August and heating up the kitchen or standing in front of the grill does not sound too appealing. I often make a big batch of cooked chicken in my slow-cooker, let it cool, chop it all up and keep it in the refrigerator for meals like this!
Chicken salad recipes (or tuna, shrimp, salmon) are wonderful options for bariatric patients. You can keep variety and flavor in your diet while focusing on good protein sources. It also makes plenty and requires no heat up! Make a recipe like this and have lunch ready to go for a few days.
