Let’s be frank: how often do you eat salad because you’re craving it and how often is it because it’s what you think you should be having? You munch away on your leafy lunch day in, day out because you’re “being good” — amiright?
But we’re only human and no matter how hard we try, sometimes we just can’t stomach another piece of lettuce. Well, the good news is, you don’t have to. Believe it or not, you can make a healthy salad sans foliage. All you need is some nutrient-packed vegetables, a high-quality protein and a delicious dressing that won’t ruin your calorie count.
The proof is in the pudding with this broccoli and bacon “salad” from beach body trainers, the Buf Girls. Packed full of nutrients, protein and healthy fats, it’ll provide a slow-release of energy to keep you charging til dinnertime. Plus, it’s drizzled with an amazingly creamy, low-cal salad dressing made with natural yoghurt, tahini and apple cider vinegar (which we all know is double thumbs up for weight loss). Prep it ahead of time and pack it for lunch or whip it up in a matter of minutes. If you’re vegan, check out the swaps below.
