LUNCH MEAL PREP: Spinach, Cashews & Blueberry Salad

I’m still struggling to stick to a structured diet. I want to blame my environment, but I know it’s my will power (or lack there of) that is the real problem. Living back at home, even though I’m now in the basement of their 3-story home, has been a challenge food wise. Someone is always either ordering food or cooking something delicious upstairs, but it’s not exactly healthy. There’s always enough for me and for some reason I’m having trouble saying no. I started a master cleanse yesterday and literally on my first day of the cleanse my mom ordered two large boxes of pizza. I love pizza. Like, I really love pizza. The smell of it just always gets to me, so I obviously had a slice or 3. Which I now totally regret. I’ll go into more detail about why I really regret this when I write a post about the cleanse that I am on.

Anyway, I’m trying to add more salad back into my diet. I’ve already written two other blog posts on salad which you can check out here: ACV Spinach Salad Recipe & My Favourite Salad Recipe. They are basically the same salad with a few variations. Today, I’m going to teach you how to meal prep my favourite salad recipe. This really is my go-to salad. This is the only salad that I’ve been making for quite some time now and I’m still not tired of it.

Meal prepping my breakfast has totally been a hit for me. It’s the breakfast that I was eating everyday anyway and when I meal prepped it, it just made my morning that much easier. You can check out that recipe here: BREAKFAST MEAL PREP: Fruit, Granola & Yogurt. My lunch meal prep on the other hand has been a little more difficult for me to keep up with. And that’s because by that time of day there are other temptations for food that I can’t seem to resist. That’s why I am on a cleanse right now. Trying to hope that I can detox myself of all the junk food that I have been eating, in order to curb my cravings and get back to the healthy diet I used to be on.

I’m also hoping that the more effort I put into meal prepping, the more likely I am going to stick to eating it. I know that once I am back into eating a healthy diet, my cravings for junk food will cease to exist. I am sure of this because this has already happened to me. I had been so motivated to change my diet that I had ended all cravings for junk food and began craving healthy food only. This is my goal once again. So, let’s get into this recipe:

Spinach, Cashews & Blueberry Salad Recipe

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Lay out the 4 meal prep containers and add a handful of baby spinach into each one.
  2. Follow with the spicy cashews, pumpkin seeds and blueberries.
  3. Put on the lid and place into the fridge.
  4. This recipe lasts 4-5 days.

I’ve also created a YouTube video for this meal prep that you can watch here:

Alright, so that was my easy salad meal prep recipe. I hope you guys enjoy this salad as much as I do. And I hope you have a better time sticking to your meal prepped lunches than I do lol! I’ve actually had a better time with breakfast and dinner meal preps. I don’t know why I’m having such trouble with the lunch one. Oh well, I will just keep trying and hopefully reaching for my meal prepped lunch will become second nature to me soon enough. The next meal prep recipe I will be sharing is an Egg Fried Rice Dinner Meal Prep. So, make sure to check that one out once it’s released!
