Salads are People, too

Have you ever been dissed for eating a salad? Sure, a few leaves of lettuce and some veggies could hardly pass a meal, especially for hangry fueling athletes, but who says you can’t create a full-sized meal on a bed of lettuce? We’re here to help.

Super salads rock our world. What’s a super salad? It has everything on it, from veggies, to protein & carbs (cue prepped chicken & rice) and finally to healthy fats. Think about salads this way: it’s basically everything you would eat as a meal but put on a bed of lettuce for a little extra volume & crunch.

It’s easy to put together & you have a super-sized meal in 5 minutes (competition, anyone?)
