If you love pasta and chicken, here’s an easy way to enjoy both at the same time. Best yet, when you maintain an appropriate portion size, you will have a meal that’s right around 400 calories. Remember to drink water with your meal so you don’t add unnecessary calories to the total.
As a healthy leftover idea, aside from packing a portion of the same chicken alfredo meal to enjoy the following day, a simple way to create something different is making a tossed chicken salad.
If you do opt to make a salad, just be leery of the dressing you choose since this is the one aspect many people forget to take into account. Stay away from Caesar and Ranch dressings since they pack way too many calories and fat that can ruin a healthy salad. Fat free Italian or light oil and vinegar is the way to go when it comes to salad dressings.
