Long gone are the days of iceberg lettuce salads that don’t taste good, contain very little nutrients, are typically high in saturated fat and only leave you hungry again in an hour.

Here’s how you can build the perfect nutrient-dense, high protein, high fiber salad. Your possibilities are endless!

Start with dark mixed greens:
spinach
kale and/or
sprouts

Fiber:
Quinoa
Artichokes
Chickpeas

Vegetables:
Tomatoes
Carrots
Broccoli/Cauliflower
Peppers

Protein:
Boiled Eggs
Turkey Bacon
Roasted Chicken
Lean Hamburger
Shrimp or Fish

Healthy Fats:
Avocado
Walnuts
Sliced Almonds
Pine Nuts

Fruit for more flavor and fiber:
Sliced Strawberries
Peaches
Sliced Red Seedless Grapes

🍋Drizzle with a homemade salad dressing like this Honey Lemon Vinaigrette🍋

Creating these salads in a jar is also a perfect way to always have a complete and convenient meal on hand too! Here’s mine this week-I created two salads in quart jars that would be enough for a full meal, and one salad in pint sized jar for a side salad. 🙂

Let me know if you try it!
