The Perfect Summer Salad



Hi guys, 

Now that summer is in full swing, we’ve been craving foods that are fresh and healthy to give our bodies that pretty summer “glow”.  At the top of that list are salads – they’re the perfect light meal and a great serving of healthy veggies and protein.  But not all salads are created equal! Dressings can add hundreds of calories, meat can be full of harmful antibiotics, and toppings can be stale and out of season. That’s why we love Panera Bread – their salads are interesting, delicious and most importantly, good for your body.

According to the Pew Health Initiatives, 80% of all antibiotics sold in the US go into the food people eat.  Panera works to provide as much antibiotic-free meat as possible, starting in 2004 when they decided that all of their salads should be served with antibiotic-free chicken.  The result? A salad that tastes better and is what we think better for your body.   One of our favorites from Panera Bread is their Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad. It’s only served during the summer months when berries are at their ripest, topped with antibiotic-free chicken for a healthy dose of protein and – the best part – is only 340 calories. Sounds like the perfect summer salad to us!

Make sure to keep up with the all the yummiest, freshest salads and more by following Panera on Twitter and Facebook.


Panera is also giving one reader a $25 gift card so you can try one of their summer salads for yourself!
