Meal Plan Monday {Salad Challenge}

Hey y'all,

I love hearing other's meal plans for inspiration for my own meals. I love looking through cookbooks and Pinterest but often I stick to a list of favorite meals. It can also be hard to cook for one so let me know if you want to see more recipes on here.

A few weeks ago, Brittany from Eating Bird Food hosted a salad challenge. I was out of town and decided I would start the challenge this week now that I am back to the swing of things (and ate poorly this weekend with a birthday lunch, potluck, and book club snacks). If you want to join you can sign up here for an e-book that includes a grocery list and recipes.

The premise of the challenge is to eat one meal sized salad each day for five days. I am focusing on salads for lunches this week as I love feeling energized and that I filled up on veggies in the afternoon. Last year, Brittany hosted a ten day salad challenge and you can find the grocery list and recipes on this post. Brittany even has a whole section of salads on her recipes page here.

Here are some of my favorite salad recipes when I don't want to make another Cobb, Caesar, or Greek salad:

Today's salad is a simple mix of spring mix, tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, carrots, a turkey burger, sunflower seeds, and Dairy Free Ranch from Tessemae's (I have found it at Whole Foods and Harris Teeter).

What is your go-to salad recipe?
Favorite dressing recipe?

  1. Hey, Jessica. Your salad challenge is simply awesome. Is it possible to participate in the challenge with paleo salads?


Thank you for your sweet message!
