So, as a part of my fitness journey, I had challenged myself to eat more salads which I am somewhat used to now. In addition to that, my work lunch is usually just a salad because it is easy to make and pretty filling too.
My major ingredients for my basic salads ( which I probably have every other day ) are: Spinach, Sweet corn, avocado and grape tomatoes. (They usually take about 5-10 minutes to prepare, this is with an exception of the protein).
An interesting and healthy fact is that I barely need any dressing (occasionally I use a bit of olive oil when the salad is too dry) which I find very convenient and less fattening.
Steak Salad with the broth that served as the dressing.
Chicken salad (I boiled regular chicken breasts for this with some spices so I could enjoy the salad better, this salad also had lettuce added to it).
Boiled Egg salad
Fried egg and steak salad (Ok, the story behind this was that I was too hungry to wait for an egg to boil and so I fried the egg. I had a little leftover steak which I used for this salad. It was very tasty)
There it is, that is how I make my basic salads (I know, I need to get more creative). I hope you find this helpful and I look forward to hearing some other salad recommendations.
Till next time,
