Easy Nutritious Lunches- Salads

I’ve been on quite a salad roll for lunches lately! I used to think that salads alone were unsatisfying and would leave me hungry in a hour or so.  That is until I learned the right stuff to put in a salad! I love eating a big plate of veggies topped with other nutritious add ons! Very filling, satisfying, healthy and delicious!

Here is the salad I had today for lunch: Romaine lettuce, cucumber, radishes, spinach, carrots, seaweed tofu, and quinoa. I dressed it with my favourite homemade salad dressing, which I will post later with recipe!  I love salads! So simple, quick to throw together and so versatile….and scrumptious!

Salad in a jar… genius! A great way to take your salad on the go.

This salad consisted of: Black beans, sunflower seeds, broccoli, homemade lime coleslaw (cabbage, rasins, carrots, lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper), spinach, sweet onion sprouts, and hummus. I find that hummus provides a pretty good dressing! I also added a splash of apple cider vinegar. It is best to put dressing at the bottom along with beans and nuts. Keep the greens near the top to avoid becoming soggy.

Eat up!
