The craving was totally worth it!

It's Friday.

& I am so very happy about that!

Since yesterday afternoon, I have been craving a new Thai Chicken salad at Panera that this lovely lady posted about. I've had a really bad craving. Like I woke up twice thinking about it, craving.

So, because my husband is wonderful, we had a lovely lunch date earlier so I could try this salad.

I've got two words:

Holy Yum!

I love Panera, period. But this salad shot up to the top of my fav list.

What's great is the entire salad has less fat, calories and carbs than any salad I have found, other than Panera's Strawberry Fields salad, eating out. Half the salad is less than 200 calories! Even if you attempt the whole salad, your calories for a meal are still under 400. And to make it even more awesome, this includes the dressing!

So words of advice from yours truly, go out and try one this weekend!


  1. YUM! I might have to go check this out, I love their soups, ESPECIALLY the broccoli and cheddar one. Thanks for the review. :)

  2. Wow! That looks amazing. I might have to stop by Panera very soon.

  3. We don't live near a Panera but any kinda thai salad I like! I just had 1.5 pieces of pizza with no crust and I have been craving that the same way you have been craving the salad. I am totally satisfied. I'd have inhaled three pieces without even thinking before!
    Why I choked on a string cheese but could eat pizza today no idea!

  4. That looks so good, I love salad!!! But...I live in Canada and we don't have Panera...I am going to the States on Sunday though for a bit of shopping, wonder if I can find one...thanks for the details!

  5. Ohdang! That looks good....we don't have one nearby but the next time I am near Las Vegas....mmmmm

  6. I haven't been big on Thai and Asian flavors (maybe it is the nuts), but my tastes are changing so much these days. Those stats are worth a try for sure!

  7. I've been craving it too! Gotta get it soon.


Your lovely comments make my day so much sweeter! ♥ Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!
