3 Easy Power Salad Bowl Meal Prep Recipes

If there is one thing we love around here, it’s salads. No, we don’t mean boring salads with lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and balsamic vinegar. Nope, it’s a flavorful, hearty, protein-packed, bowl with a good combination of mix-ins! 

The possibilities for salad combos are endless, just endless! But, it doesn’t matter how you create your salad, if it’s getting soggy before you’re eating it during the week, it’s going to be straight-up terrible.

That’s why we were so excited to see GoodCook® launch their new salad meal prep containers that are bowl-shaped! Not only are they the perfect shape and size for these three nutrient-dense power salad bowl recipes, but they also come with a 2-ounce condiment cup on top to ensure that your main salad ingredients don’t get soggy between Sunday meal prep and when you enjoy them during the week. We want to shake hands with the genius who came up with that! No more soggy salads around here! 

Plus, they have a domed shape lid that makes shaking all of those tasty salad ingredients, with your dressing, together extra easy! You won’t have to worry about trying to mix your salads and having them fall out of the bowl or not be evenly coated.

Size Matters! 

And if you’re wondering, which we know you macro counters are, the main compartment is 4 cups in size, which makes it just right for getting a balance of protein, carbs, veggies, and healthy fats. Try to stick with about 2 cups greens/veggies, 1/2 cup protein, 1/2 cup starch, 1/4 cup healthy fats, and 1/4 cup fun toppings like dried fruit. 

We have even found the dressing container (see that fun little 2-ounce dressing holder on the side!) to work great for salsa, olives, cheese, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, etc! Heck, it even works if you want to take a bit of salt and pepper with you for a meal. We all know how salt will wilt your greens real quick! 

Let’s take a look at these 3 easy power salad bowl meal prep recipes that we are currently eating on repeat!
