The word “salad” can be enough to initiate my gag reflex. I always get ahead of myself, pack a salad for lunch, and then sit with it on my desk for hours as I try to choke down a bowl full of food that only rabbits should be eating.
It turns out a salad doesn’t need to just be dry, leafy greens. By loading them with good-for-you foods that aren’t your typical vegetables, you can forget that the contents of your meal actually add up to a salad.
You don’t need to spend $12 a day to get a seriously filling salad that will keep you satisfied all day long. Try one of these to meal prep this week — they may lead to even the most salad-hating among us to change their mind and come to the green side.
