Dr Jockers Comments

This colorful chicken vegetable salad is a great ketogenic, anti-inflammatory, fat burning lunch or dinner salad that is easy to make and full of great nutrients that support healthy brain function and optimal energy.  I will have something like this a few times per week for lunch.

This recipe is full of healthy protein and powerful antioxidant phytonutrients that destroy cancer stem cells and detoxify bad estrogen metabolites.  It is always wise to get these ingredients organic in order to avoid any toxic pesticides and herbicides.

My wife and I get a lot of pre-cooked and diced organic chicken from Whole Foods as it is a healthy, quick and easy protein source.  We buy them buy the case (12 at a time) and get a 10% discount and stock them in the fridge.  So when we are busy and need to make a very quick lunch or dinner meal, they are available.  Between the two of us, we probably go through 4-5 boxes each week.

I love bell peppers for the flavor and color.  Most people do very well with these, however, if you have challenges with nightshade vegetables than you would want to avoid these.  If you are following an autoimmune nutrition plan or a leaky gut plan, it may be wise to avoid bell peppers for a period of time before reintroducing it.

Cruciferous sprouts such as broccoli, kale and arugula are the most nutritious.  Look for the ones that are available to you at your local health food store or farmer’s market.  Top this with aromatic herbs like oregano, thyme and basil and it makes it smell AMAZING!  You will love it!

  1. Easy-peasy-quick-and-breezy! The pickles were a great addition that I never add to a salad. They really boosted the yum factor! I used oil & acv. 👍😋👍
