I Want A Salad But They Take Too Long To Chop Up....
Members Were Sparked
I cut up 2 heads of lettuce at the beginning of the week and put them in a freezer bag. Then I chop up my bell peppers, carrots, cucumber, cabbage and celery in another bag. This way I have a salad mixed up and ready every time I have the urge to eat something quick- now there is no excuses for me to grab cookies or ice cream- salad is just as easy to prepare :) and it doesnt go bad if you use the freezer bags to lock in the freshness

I wanted a salad for dinner w/o the hassle. I was grateful that I had resealable bagged salad (iceberg w/carrots, red cabbage) handy. It's quick, sanitary, and healthy! To add a little, I chopped up a cucumber and an onion, added an egg and salad toppings, and voila! No rinsing and chopping lettuce :-)
Every 2-3 days have a "chop fest"! Fill a few tupperware boxes with lots of washed and chopped/sliced salad and veggies e.g. lettuce, carrots, cucumber, onions, mushrooms, peppers, baby tomatoes, corn, peas, beans, little broccoli florets, bean sprouts and so on.
Then anytime you want to prepare a quick salad, or stuff a pitta bread or add a few veggies to a stir fry - they all all ready for you! Like your own private salad bar!
