Meal prepping salads can be super easy if you are in the habit of meal planning already. Just grab your favourite greens, a hard-boiled and slice an avocado then stuff them into a bowl. Chuck canned legumes like nourishing chickpeas on top and you've just made a high-protein bowl made of an excellent variety of nutrients.

Seriously, you cannot deny the health benefits of making this salad bowl. The high fibre content is super gut-friendly, feeding gut microbes and helping to naturally rebalance the digestive tract. With quinoa, this non-grain is high in fibre and super filling. It can help you reduce those pesky sugar food cravings by keeping you fully satiated for some time after eating. A great way to help balance your food intake and kick start lasting weight loss.

Chickpea Protein Salad & Avocado


  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves, organic

  • 1 /2 Hass avocado, sliced

  • 1 hard-boiled egg, halved

  • 1/4 cup chickpeas, rinsed

  • 1/2 lemon, cut into wedges

  • cracked pepper and pink rock salt to season

This preparation is so easy and quick. Add the green to a serving bowl or plate. Top with the avocado, eggs and chickpeas. Season and squeeze the lemon's juice over top.

This salad is very high-protein which will naturally help to balance your blood sugar levels. You can use spinach, kale or mixed greens which also create a high-fibre meal which helps you feel fuller from eating less. Fibre is also super gut-friendly.

Batch Cook Recipe

Planning ahead, even if you are not sure yet what you want to cook, is such an absolute time saver. Things like having a few pre-cooked eggs on hand, can make quick work of creating easy healthy meals last minute. Other meal prep items that are very helpful to always have on hand are:

  • pre-cooked brown rice, quinoa, or couscous; add fibre to meals

  • seasoned and pre-cooked chicken, tofu, veggie patties; warm and add to salads

  • pre-chopped veggies either fresh or frozen in baggies; add to stir-fries or salads

  • canned beans, lentils, salmon, tuna, and basic soup ingredients

I'd love to hear how you went making this salad and perhaps your own tips that help you with meal planning. Share your feedback and ideas in the comments.
