Eating a big salad at least once a day is a great way to maintain a healthy lifestyle! Throughout the workweek, we often don’t have a lot of time to cut up and prepare a salad every single night! Preparing salads on Sunday night that are ready to go throughout the week helps to prepare you for a healthy week! And it reduces the likelihood of making unhealthy choices on a whim during the workday. Follow these simple salad- making rules below and your meal will taste just as fresh on Friday as it does on Monday. Pair your healthy lunch with an organic, cold-pressed Living Juice for a well-rounded meal!
1. Start with your greens -To save time, pick up a package of prewashed organic fresh salad greens! Fill your glass mason jar container about three- quarters full of greens (about two to three cups)
2. Add the organic vegetables, beans and fruit – It is important to add carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, chickpeas, kidneys beans, corn, peas or even grapes or blueberries! Dry off each ingredient with a paper to keep them fresh.
3. Add your protein – For protein, we suggest vegan options like tofu, tempeh, or nuts! Add these on top of the first three salads. Do the same with avocado or nuts and seeds.
4. Keep your dressing separate until the moment you eat your salad - Purchase a few small-sized glass containers and keep your dressings a part from your salad until you are ready to eat!
Shake up these freshly prepared salads throughout your work week and add them to a nice bowl to enjoy your salad! Mix in salad dressing and enjoy with an organic, cold-pressed Living Juice!
