A Healthy Lunch: Salad with Grilled Chicken

One of the best things a submissive homemaker can do is to encourage his significant other’s healthy habits by making it easy for her to eat healthy. It often feels like a chore to make a healthy meal or even learn what options are healthy in the first place. Luckily that’s what submissive men are for!

Do some research. You probably know what she likes- if not, ask- search for recipes you think she would enjoy and give her some options. Save yourself the money and effort and check with her before going out on a limb and expecting her to eat something she’s not in the mood for.

One of my wife’s favorite quick and healthy lunches is grilled chicken, sliced and added to a garden salad. It’s a healthy option for several reasons: it includes lean protein, has a low fat content, it is nutrient-rich, high in fiber, and low in empty calories. Here is a basic outline of the recipe I follow:



  1. Start the grill on medium heat.
  2. While the grill heats up, rinse any vegetables and place the raw chicken on a dish.
  3. Season both sides of the chicken.
  4. When the grill is above 350, start cooking the chicken. Keep an eye on it; As the thin sliced breasts turn white on the top, flip each filet.
  5. While the chicken is cooking, slice any vegetables and prepare a salad bowl.
  6. Mix in the croutons, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
  7. When the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165, pull it from the stove and allow it to rest for a few minutes to seal in the moisture. It should have nice grill marks and a decent crip to the thin edges.
  8. Slice the chicken and top the salad.
  9. Salad dressing can be served on the side, or if you know how she likes it, mixed into the salad.

I make this salad for my wife two or three times a week, switching up the vegetables and dressing, and adding other ingredients such as blueberries, walnuts, or goat cheese. By developing a few “go-to” recipes like this, you can make it easy for the head of your home to eat healthy. She will appreciate your efforts and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re doing everything you can to maintain her well-being.
