Stuck for new salad recipes? Check out these 7 tasty salads!

Updated: Jan 3



Did you know that there is literally hundreds of different salad ideas out there in the world and yet many of us make the same salad(s) each and every week.


Not only that... we tell ourselves:


"it's just easier to make the same salad each week"

"it's too hard to find salad recipes that I like"

"I don't know where to find new salad recipes"


The same goes for our other recipes like breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks.


We as humans are designed to move towards what's easier vs what we perceive is hard as it ultimately helps us conserve energy or avoid danger.


However, this doesn't serve us well, it may have served us if we were still hunter gathers, but we live in the 21's century now.
