5 Spring Salads For The Busy Sporty Sister

ROTWsalad_bannerSpring is here, and you know what? We couldn’t be more chuffed. Spring is all about rising with the sun, watching our sprouts grow like wildfire and having a bounty of spring produce to nourish and fuel our bodies. Life really doesn’t get much better than that. Oh, we love the simple things…

So, with spring in mind we really want to focus in on setting some really healthy habits. And one thing that we seem to really struggle with (from time to time) is preparing lunch for work each day. Typically, the Sunday tradition consists of meal planning, produce pick-ups and a preparathon. Chopping, stir-frying, steaming, tossing – the works.

Though, sometimes, just sometimes, things come up and the good ol’ preparathon goes down the vegetable muncher. For these times, you gotta go with plan B.

So, we asked our LJ Active Chef to share some top tips for when plan A falls by the wayside. Spring and salads go together like Allie & Noah from the Notebook, or almond spread and apple – it just works. So with Rhi’s nourishing know-how we have created 5 spring salads for the busy sporty sister, one for each day of the working week. No mess, no fuss, just a whole lot of fresh, nourishing goodness.

    Hi, I’ve noticed that goats cheese seems to be a real favourite with MNB. Sorry for being a total noob, but is goats cheese the same as feta cheese? And if there were low fat alternatives of cheese or yoghurt, would you choose that or the full-fat version, seeing as they’re mostly good fats?
    Thanks for the delish recipes :)

      Hi Rachel,

      We do use goats cheese a lot don’t we? Haha. We probably use goats cheese because it can be easier to tolerate than other cheeses, as well as it has an exceptionally beautiful flavour especially for salads!
      However, you can definitely substitute with Fetta (or other cheese) if you prefer!

      And I would most definitely choose full fat dairy over low fat versions, because as you said, the fats are nourishing, the products are higher quality and they taste better!

      Thanks so much for reading and commenting,
      Rhi

    can’t stand the taste of coriander! any suggestions for an alternative in the kale/sweet potato/coriander/pear/sunflower sprouts? do you think parsley would go well?

    All the salads look great! Was just wondering about serving size/how many it serves and of there were any rules as to ratios of ingredients. Thanks! :)
