Choose Your Base

Start with a variety of fresh greens such as spinach, kale, arugula, or mixed greens. This will keep your salads interesting throughout the week.

Protein Power

Incorporate proteins like grilled chicken, tofu, hard-boiled eggs, or chickpeas. Preparing these in advance ensures you have ready-to-go salads.

Roast Your Veggies

Roast a batch of your favorite vegetables like sweet potatoes, bell peppers, or Brussels sprouts. Roasted veggies add flavor and texture.

Chop Your Veggies

Prep raw veggies such as cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes. Keep them in airtight containers for freshness.

Add Crunch

Keep a stash of crunchy toppings like nuts, seeds, or croutons. These can be added just before eating to keep them crisp.

Fruit for Sweetness

Incorporate fruits like berries, apples, or oranges. These add a sweet contrast to savory ingredients.

Cheese Choices

Add cheeses like feta, goat cheese, or shredded cheddar. Cheese enhances flavor and adds creaminess.

Use Jars for Layering

Layer your salads in mason jars with the dressing at the bottom and heavier ingredients first. This keeps everything fresh and crisp.

Mix It Up

Vary your combinations each day to avoid salad fatigue. Change up your proteins, dressings, and toppings for variety.

Stay Fresh

Keep all ingredients stored properly in the fridge and only mix the salad when you're ready to eat. This helps maintain freshness all week long.
