Fridge Salad | EASY HEALTHY MEALS | Advice from a nutrition school drop out.

A few weeks ago I stumbled onto this recipe over at Eat Yourself Skinny. It's a detox salad that's super delicious and easy to throw together because you basically just toss everything into the food processor and it's done. Since then this salad has started a chain reaction of food processor salads in our house.

Food processor fridge salad. It's brilliant! Each time we run out of a salad - they last us about 3 days - I just process up another one. I've been using a lot of varied combinations (purple cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, peppers, black beans, chickpeas) but mostly all with dry-er ingredients.

Then when I'm ready to have a salad, I slice up half an avocado, maybe some cucumber, cut up some cilantro, and mix it into a bowl of my dry salad mix. Top with feta or goat cheese and drizzle on my favourite dressing of the week. It's seriously efficient.. and you can jazz the salads up so easily and tailor it to suit your tastes. Add some sliced chicken breast and you've got yourself an entree. I also love cranberries and fruit in my salads... and cheese.

Bonus use for the salad: Mix it into a smoothie and you have a serious health booster. Try adding some frozen berries, a banana, a scoop of protein powder, some water and/or almond/soy milk and about a cup of salad into a blender. My salad had chickpeas - added protein boost - very filling.

What's your favourite salad fixin's? How often do you squeeze a salad into your diet?...
