Salad Building 101

Just a reminder to let you know virtually ANY meal plan can be built into a healthy salad full of flavor! Below you will find the building blocks for your salads. You can see how your meal plan fits and hopefully this can give you some insight on what you would like to change a future meal plan to. This will give you versatility and more importantly the flexibility to change it up and have salads a couple times a week or as desired.



VEGETABLES:

Lettuce

Spinach

Bell Peppers

Green Beans

Asparagus

Onion

***Make sure these items are on the approved list


Lesley's Helpful Tip: I religiously keep fresh romaine lettuce with chopped red onion in the refrigerator. This is always my go to item and is always readily available in case I am pressed for time or if I have a salad for my main meal or a side salad as an option.


PROTEIN:

Beef

Chicken (cubed or shredded)

Ground Turkey

Salmon

Tuna

Edamame


FAT:

Cheese

Avocado

Almonds

Boiled Eggs


CARBOHYDRATES:

Corn Tortillas / Carb Chopper Tortilla (* see previous blog post for our amazing chip recipe)

Red Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

Quinoa


Helpful Tip: Lemons are always a great option for dressing, however my favorite homemade salad dressing is our honey mustard dressing that we have posted in a previous blog post.

Try it!!!!
