Make healthy lunches a SNAP with this simple nutrient-packed salad that will feed you ALL week! This go-to nutritious salad contains heaps of raw veggies that load you up with nutrients to boost your immunity and keep you healthy. Did you also know that eating healthy food loaded with nutrients will make you feel more satiated? Yep – it’s true and I dare you to try it — it works! I will blog about why this is another day but for now… trust me on this one.
This super simple technique involves only 20 minutes of prep at the beginning of the week and you are good-to-go! Start by finding a LARGE (and by that I mean…GIGANTIC) salad container (PBA free if you can). Then cut up any type of vegetable you want such as greens, cucumbers, peppers, onions, tomatoes, or whatever else trips your trigger. I especially look for the veggies in my frig that may be starting to look a little tired to make sure they don’t go to waste. Be careful — don’t cut your finger like I usually do. Oh and did I mention I am a messy cook — yep, truth is out — I am a slob in the kitchen, however, I am working on this!
THIS NUTRIENT-PACKED SALAD HAS SO MANY OPTIONS!
I often top the salad with nuts, seeds, avocados, or other goodness that would rot or get soggy if I added it to the salad at the beginning of the week. NOTE: I don’t eat eggs or any animal protein for that matter — but you could add them in just prior to eating if you so desire! OH, and remember to choose healthy dressings that don’t add empty calories or sugar. Stay-tuned for healthy delicious dressing recipes!
KEEPING IT REAL…
There is really nothing to this nutrient-packed salad and it makes lunch a snap. It seems so simple I debated even blogging about this tip! But truth-be-told, I never thought of this myself until I ran across a YouTube video that suggested this clever way to ensure you have a nutrient-packed salad at your fingertips all week. (If I ever find the video again I will link it here.) I am looking forward to seeing how this goes for you! Comment below and let me know what creations you came up with!
