Panera Bread is a great place if you're not into the low-carb lifestyle; there are so many yummy cookies, bagels, muffins, and other delicious carby treats. But, your friendly and intrepid Low-Carb Alabama editor has discovered that Panera can also be a place of refuge for us.
We've visited this chain before, if you recall - we featured the Breakfast Power Bowl last year. Now we've returned at lunch and found a great salad; it's received a thumbs up from us.
Behold, the Chicken Cobb with Avocado salad!
From their website:
All-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, applewood-smoked bacon, Gorgonzola and hard-boiled egg are all tossed with herb vinaigrette then topped with fresh avocado. Available in whole and half.
It's listed at 16g of carbs, but if you delete the tomatoes you'll come out a little better.
The Chicken Cobb with Avocado is a great lunch choice at a place where you could definitely do much worse.
