Goodbye Boring Salads—These Are the Tasty Ones We’re Packing for Lunch


Salads haven’t been that exciting since we’d stick to the pasta salad, cheese, and orange slices at the salad bar when we were kids (oh, was that just me?). But since salads are easy (simple to meal prep and pack), and also a great way to get more plants onto your plate, we’re reinventing our salads to make them exciting again.

These salads not only include a huge dose of good-for-you nutrients (brain food for the rest of the workday!), but they’ll also taste so good you’ll actually look forward to them. Say goodbye to wraps and Lean Cuisines–you’re going to be craving these salads every day.
