I started living a healthy lifestyle about two years ago and I have never felt better. My biggest struggle is making healthy choices when I am in a hurry and don’t have time to grill up some chicken. Last week I came across this salad idea on pinterest so I decided to give it a try. So far I have loved it! These pre-made salads saved me over the weekend! Supposedly they will last about 6-7 days refrigerated. However, I like my salads super fresh so I would say it’s more like 4-5 days.
Step 1. Shopping!
Step 2. Cleaning and cutting. I also boiled some quinoa and whole wheat pasta.TIPS: 1. Dressing on the bottom, lettuce on the top. If the two are touching the lettuce will turn to slime. 2. Dressing always goes in first. On top of your dressing, use a rather “hearty” vegetable, such as shredded cabbage, pea pods, or julienne carrot matchsticks. They can withstand the acidity of the dressing, and actually get better! 3. Pack it in. Use a nice variety of colorful vegetables!
The great thing about these salads is that you don’t have to follow any specific recipes. Whatever you like, throw it in their! For those of you that would rather some recipes, here are some I found on my not-so-simple life blog.
