Salad is one of my go-to favourites.  I especially like when you can premake them on Sunday and grab a  jar and go through the week.  I’ve always maintained that part of healthy eating is having a plan, and this is a good plan.  You can change the size of the jar if the portion isn’t big enough and you can also include additional protein like chicken if desired.
