Greek Couscous Salad with Chicken!

Pasta is a carb that is universally a favorite. It’s filling, yummy, and it has you craving for more. However, sometimes it’s hard to control portion sizes and eat pasta day-in and day-out because it can often lack healthy fats and solid amounts of protein. 

But we have a solution to that: Greek Coucous Salad with Chicken! Couscous is a type of pasta, but is much smaller in size. Dressing this cousin of your typical pasta-noodle with olives (a healthy fat), some veggies, and some chicken is a perfect way to keep eating your favorite foods.
