Easy Healthy Lunch Ideas: Kale Caesar Salad +Strawberry Mango Smoothie
The weather has been so gorgeous these past couple of weeks! I’m daring to believe it is actually, for real, truly shorts and flip-flop season. Hmm. That would also mean it is also actually, for real, truly time to shed just a few pesky pounds: it’s salad and smoothie season.
I love eating healthy salad any time, but with all of our moving busyness I just haven’t taken time to create as many as usual. Right now at Walmart (until 5/17), elevAte Organic Salad is on roll back—what perfect timing!
elevAte salads are portable super foods. They’re non-GMO verified, gluten free and (except power grains) less than 300 calories. And besting that: they are convenient! Clean eating, simplified. You can buy enough salads for the whole week. How’s that for easy menu planning? Now there’s no excuse for not eating well!
There’s no other salad on the market that offers everything elevAte does. Since there are eight flavor combos, you won’t get bored eating a plain, old lettuce salad. There are ancient grains, plant-based proteins, nutrient-dense greens, nuts, legumes, and seeds. That means all kinds of vitamins, antioxidants and omegas. Don’t you feel virtuous just thinking about all that delicious salad?
I especially liked the Kale Caesar Salad I just tried. Chicken, lentils, pepitas, cranberries and a few other pieces of yum are very tasty with the Caesar vinaigrette. And they never use antibiotics in their chicken so that’s a plus, too.
As for smoothies, this strawberry-mango-banana version totally satisfies.
Find elevAte salads in the Walmart produce department, right next to the bagged salads and lettuce.
