    • Italian seasoning
    • Get while supplies last as this is the LAST batch!
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch sea salt

Salad
  • 1/2 cup raw barley
    • cooked with 1.5 cups water or low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 medium avocados, diced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered (about 15)
  • 3 cups Romaine lettuce, finely chopped
  • 2 cups (red) cabbage, finely chopped
  • 1 cup cucumber, slices and/or pieces
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 4 small radish, chopped

Steps

Step 1

Add chicken pieces to a bowl and season.  Cover and set aside to marinate at room temperature while you fire up the grill (if using) and cook barley.

Step 2

Add barley to a pot of water or broth and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low, then cover and cook until the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from the heat, but keep it covered for at least another 10 – 15 minutes. Then, flake it with a fork and set aside to chill in the fridge.

Step 3

Assemble the skewers loading it up with chicken pieces.

Note: if you are NOT using a grill, set a large skillet on medium-high heat.  Once hot, spray with and add the chicken pieces.  Cook for 15 – 20 minutes or until the outside is seared and the chicken is cooked through. 

Once cooked through, cover and set aside for 10 minutes, then chop into small pieces for the salad.

Step 4

Add all ingredients for the salad in a large mixing bowl.  Toss together.

Note: If you are making this for meal prep, consider keeping the avocado, tomato, and cucumber separate until you are ready to eat in order to avoid wilting the salad.

Step 5

Enjoy the salad with your favorite dressing, such as this bangin vegan ranch dressing!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
