Stay on Track with Your Fresh Start meals that make your taste buds happy!

We are one month into the new year and it has been proven that this is the time that we lose motivation to complete the goals we set at the start of the year! I know I have already fallen off the wagon with some of the resolutions I made. But now is  actually the perfect time to make a Fresh Start. The hubbub of the holidays is over, the routine is back and the sun is coming out again. So making an effort to re-Freshen up those annual goals just makes sense! A fresh goal I am trying to stock to is making better choices as to what I choose to eat! Because we eat out a lot, I have struggled with finding restaurants that my kids love that also has a better choice menu for me. Luckily Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen satisfies both of those requirements! My kids LOVE the food and I love that I can order a Fresh Start meal that helps me keep my promise to myself to make better choices all year long!

Stay on Track with Your Fresh Start Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad

I stopped by Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen the other day after a very, very long meeting with my tax guy. Writing big checks to the IRS is never a fun thing to do so I decided I wanted a refreshing adult beverage with my meal. However, part of making better choices includes drinks as well. I was thrilled to see the Skinny Margarita on the menu!

Made with Sauza Gold Tequila and Cheddar’s Skinny Agave Sour, it hit the spot without hitting my hips!

I checked out the menu, which is always tempting and delicious, and made a mental note to revisit the Blackened Redfish with Crab Sauce next time I was in. For this visit, though, I wanted to make that Fresh eating promise was kept!

I ordered a few things because, well, it all looked so good. But I also can not recommend something to someone without first testing it myself! Now I can say with certainty that the Lemon Pepper Chicken and the Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad and DE-vine!

Stay on Track with Your Fresh Start with the Lemon Pepper Chicken

The Lemon Pepper Chicken comes over rice with two sides. I chose broccoli and mac and cheese.  The chicken was tender and flavorful, which can be hard to accomplish with a chicken breast and the sides were a perfect compliment to the chicken. The rice was perfectly cooked and I, literally, devoured it all!

The Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad was amazing as well. The honey roasted pecans added a buttery, sweet crunch to the perfectly grilled chicken that lay on a bed of mixed greens and veggies. It is an easy salad to eat! It is so flavorful that dressing is really not even needed!

Cheddar’s has a variety of Fresh eating meals that anyone would love. My next lunch will include the Grilled Baja Chicken which is topped with a savory kick of salsa to get those taste buds moving!
