Lunch is the best time to fill your daily protein requirements, along by a variety complex carbs. I love salad for lunch and try to make in variety with it. Salad doesn’t have to boring and plain. Play around with what you have in your pantry and make your salad more fun , easy and quick.
When I need some extra carbohydrate for more sustained energy and tired with bread or pasta, I serve my salad with baked potatoes or any kind of light potato dish. I usually made baked fries because it is easy and very fulfilling.It can be enjoyed as is for snacking too in replace for deep fried french fries or any kind of unhealthy stuff that make you sick.
