Well, we’re definitely back to work over here. Full-time. Busy, busy, busy.
One way I try to keep my sanity and ensure that I always have a healthy, delicious lunch is to prep everything ahead of time. So, on Sunday, when I’m making my lunch anyways, I go ahead and pack lunches for the entire week.
Or at least the “base” of my lunches. Salad!
I use whatever produce I happen to have, and then layer the salad so the heavier items are at the bottom. The final component at the top is spinach or mixed greens.
This arrangement has never let me down–Friday’s lunch is just as good as Monday’s!
I prepare 5 salads in grab-n-go containers. All that needs to be added is the protein and healthy fat.
For the healthy fat, I use my homemade salad dressing (that I keep at work), avocado, and/or nuts of some sort.
If you are away from your home at lunchtime, do you pack something?
Does anyone have a great salad dressing recipe? I’m looking to change it up a little . . .
