Making healthy decisions late at night is tricky. When you haven’t eaten dinner yet and you don’t feel like cooking, it’s easier to grab something fast and unhealthy. Last night, I was motivated to keep it healthy. I ended up going to a movie before dinner and the movie was longer than expected. I went to see “Lets be Cops.” It was pretty good, but more of a Netflix/Redbox kind of movie. When I got home, I was about five minutes away from raiding the refrigerator for all things unhealthy. I decided to take the time to make a salad instead.

I used my indoor grill for the chicken. Remember when I went to the Pepper Palace to get marinades and sauces? Well, I picked up a honey chipotle rum bbq sauce too. It’s super tasty and it’s not as sweet as most bbq sauces.

While the chicken was cooking on the grill, I tossed the carrot strips and arugula in Trader Joe’s caesar vinaigrette. After tossing the arugula, I topped it with parmesan cheese, almonds, croutons, and pumpkin seeds.

When the chicken was done, I placed it over the salad!

It was so much better than raiding the fridge for late night grub or stopping somewhere else to eat. Sometimes eating healthy takes a little extra work, a good mind set, and will power, but it’s always worth it in the end!
