Salad Love

My love for salads has gotten crazy since my Whole30.  I take them in a gallon ziplock bag to school for lunch with my big bowl.  I’ve gotten so used to making my own salad dressing, bottled dressing doesn’t really appeal to me anymore.  Here’s what I’ve been putting in my salads to keep things quick and easy!

  • Mixed Springs
  • Broccoli Slaw Mix (in the salad area, chopped carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, etc)
  • Shredded Carrots
  • Crushed Walnuts
  • Blueberries
  • Hard Boiled Egg
  • Chicken (I try to bake a big batch on Sunday, so it is ready to go for the week)
  • Avocado (If I have one… sometimes 1/2 sometimes the whole thing!)
  • Dressing (balsamic vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, salt in a very small mason jar)

When I have these items in my fridge, ready to go – I stick with it.  I enjoy eating a huge salad at lunch because it fills me up.  Some of my friends think it is funny how big of a salad I can eat. Keep it simple and enjoy!
