Salad Meal Prep

Getting a delicious and healthy meal on a table with a bussy schedule is something most people are struggling with. This is why I love meal prepping my lunches for 2-3 days ahead, and it only takes 10 minutes twice a week. To keep me excited about each salad, I love to add different dressing and add ons – and trust me, this will make you crave salads every day.

How to keep your avocado nice and green for a days?

  1. Cut your avocado into smaller pieces
