New Superfood Side from Chick-fil-A

January 22, 2016 • Notes from a Working Mom, Restaurant Reviews, Salads, Superfoods, Uncategorized


If you’re like me, you struggle with finding meal choices that look remotely healthy when you’re out and about. Especially when you’re on the go with the kids, it’s beyond challenging to order something that won’t ruin all of the good food and exercise choices you’ve made all week.  Finally, Chick-fil-A has created a New Superfood Side that is satisfying and declicious! 

My family and friends can attest to this…I am one of those people who frequently get “hangry,” i.e. hungry and angry when I haven’t eaten.  I am also one of those people that requires many small meals throughout the day to stay energized and happy.


At least one or two days a week, I find myself on the road with all four of my kids in tow.  Inevitably, one if not all of them are thirsty, hungry, or both at some point of our adventure.  If I’m on my own with them and need to grab lunch or a snack, I’m limited by drive through or carside to-go restaurants.   Both options leave me frustrated with few healthy options for all of us…until now.

There is finally a healthy option that tastes fantastic!! Chick-fil-A just launched a Superfood Side this week! It’s a blend of hand-chopped kale and Broccolini, tossed in a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with flavorful dried sour cherries. It is served with a blend of roasted nuts (walnuts, almonds, and pecans) that enhances the flavor and adds fantastic crunch. (FYI…The nuts are completely sealed and separate from the rest of the salad so you can opt out of them if you have a nut allergy in your crew.)


I had the chance to sample the Superfood Side last week at the Washington, PA Chick-fil-A before it was released this week. In fact, a small group of local mommy bloggers were in attendance and the restaurant operator prepared the fresh Superfood Side for us right in the dining area.  It truly is simple and fresh and was developed in collaboration with James Beard Nominee and Atlanta-based chef, Ford Fry of Ford Fry Restaurants.


I really can’t say enough about this Superfood Side.   I loved it that much.  In fact, I made a special trip a bit out of our way this week to pick one up at our nearby Chick-fil-A in Monroeville.  The flavor and quality was the same as the salad prepared especially for us the week before.  I opted to boost the size of my salad from 5 oz. to 8 oz.  I also added their slightly smokey gilled nuggets, for only 310 total calories!!! If you opt for the 5 oz. salad portion with the grilled nuggets, it’s only 280 total calories! (That would include a zero calorie drink or water, of course.)


My kiddos each had kids’ meals with the grilled nuggets, a fresh fruit cup, and Chick-fil-A’s first organic option, Honest Kids’ Appley Every After juice.  (In full disclosure, we had to get one order of waffle fries, too!  Everything in moderation, right?) Win, win, win, for the whole family.


Thank you Chick-fil-A!!! Thank you raising the bar and offering your customers exactly what we’ve been looking for and need.

Whether you’re on the go and need a healthy meal option or are just tired of all of the at-home meal prep, make Chick-fil-A your next stop.  You will not be disappointed.  In fact, I bet you’ll be craving and planning to pick up your next Superfood Side soon after you try it.

    KristenI love this blog entry! I couldn’t agree with you more every (other) year my hnsabud and I don’t even consider starting a health regimen until after the holidays. Well this year is definitely different! We started making changes at the beginning of Sept and I’m happy to report our healthy focus is now a way of life. How we think about holiday eating will be completely different then years past. And the best part we will be starting out 2013 at our health goals instead of just starting to work towards them!Thank you for all the ideas and motivation! You’re a big component of the changes we’re seeing in ourselves

        Adrenalina ramane in sistem de fiecare data cand apare o situatie de stres. Daca se tot repeta situatiile astea frecvent vei incepe sa ai probleme de inima de exemplu. Bieenitnles ca aici depinde de organismul fiecaruia, nu e o regula generala. Tehnica de relaxare practicata constant actioneaza ca un antidot la situatii de genul asta. Ideea e ca e nevoie sa facem metoda de relaxare de mai multe ori decat am avut situatii de stres. Adica cel mai bine e sa o facem zilnic.

      The EU is intent on becoming the united states of europe as a world power dominated by germany! Its huge 5th column of islamofascists is bringing back the Nazi mind-set. This is a very dangerous prospect for world peace.
