An easy way to ensure you eat plenty of vegetables is to keep pre-made salad in the fridge in an airtight container.
Forget the store-made salads because they’re so boring. You can certainly start with a lettuce mix, but add your own colorful pizzazz for a salad you’re sure to reach for over and over again.
Note: If you make premade salad, store juicy vegetables like diced tomatoes separately and just add them when you’re ready to eat.
Experiment with a wide variety of greens as you might be surprised at what you actually like. You can create different tastes and textures by mixing different types of lettuce. Try spinach, a spring mix or whatever you’d like. You can even add a bit of iceberg lettuce to create some extra crunch.
There is no right or wrong here. Simply pick what you like, as much as you’d like and in any combination. Of course, some of these are technically fruit, but they’re placed here because commonly think of them as vegetables.
