Salad Meal Prep Four Ways

Spice up your lunch with these four delicious and healthy salads!

I recently started working out a lot again. I’ve always been a pretty active person, but usually just some light cardio 4-5 days a week. I found a new love for lifting weights recently, as well as my Peleton which we just got. With all this extra working out, I am EXTRA hungry! I don’t want to go for junk when I’m starving after a work-out so meal-prepping has been a life saver. Robbie also always wants a protein packed meal after his work-outs.

I usually prep for us on Mondays, and it makes the rest of the week so much easier. I’m usually always developing other meals for the rest of the week, but typically just dinners or baking/snacks. I aim to prep us lunches, salad dressings, cut up veggies, roasted veggies – just to make my week a little easier.

These salads are a fun way to make your lunch healthy and yummy! You can add chicken to any of them (or protein of choice) or just leave them plant-based! The dressings to go along with them are so easy to throw together and made with the cleanest ingredients!
