Lauren, one of our Diabetes influencers, recently took a trip to Costco and put together two full days’ worth of diabetes-friendly recipes, all with ingredients available at the warehouse. Recipes for breakfast Vegan Chocolate Strawberry Chia Pudding all the way to Salmon with Quinoa and Veggies for dinner were presented.
Here’s one the recipes she laid out, which, by the way, are all quick and easy to prepare:
Chicken and Kale Salad:
In a very large bowl add the greens from Costco’s Sweet Kale salad, chopped Sunset cucumbers, and halved grape, cherry or heirloom tomatoes. Toss with one packet of dressing from the kale salad. Add Kirkland diced rotisserie chicken or Nature Raised Farms heated grilled chicken strips. Sprinkle with add-ins from the salad package. (This will make several days worth of lunches!)
