Here’s a great meal prep staple for on the go lunches this week! I know so many people are in the rush of exam season, busy work schedules & prepping for the holidays & it can be overwhelming to have to think of making lunch everyday, right?!

This salad is fresh, crispy, crunchy, satisfying, full of protein, fibre, healthy fats & good carbs, flavourful AF & a great meal to hold you over for those long days!
