Packing a salad for lunch is a great way to stick to a healthy diet, but not everyone makes the effort. The Lunchbox Salads recipe book is great for inspiration and it can help you stick to your healthy eating goals. Of course, a salad is a better choice than frozen junk food that you pop in the microwave.
The recipe book is filled with great ideas, so there is something for everyone. Even if you make salads regularly, like I do, you will still find new, tasty combinations. They are made with fresh ingredients and each one can be customized for your own preferences, dietary restrictions or allergies.
It is easy to find the recipes that will work for you, since the chapters are organized by ingredient. Hence, I can quickly go to the carrot chapter to find lots of salads that feature carrots.
Here are a few of the recipes that I like and I hope you like them, too.
- Kale Pasta Salad with Coconut Lime Dressing
- Orange and Beet Salad with Orange Dressing
- Carrot Chickpea Salad with Honey Dressing
- Squash, Cashew and Spinach Salad with Tahini Dressing
The recipes are clearly written and the photos are beautiful. Packing tips are included, so you can take your beautiful lunch with you to work, school or on a picnic. I’m ready for a salad now and I hope you are, too!
