It’s hard to find the inspiration to pack a healthy lunch to bring to work, but scrolling through Instagram salads can help.
Healthy food bloggers just have a knack for making kale covetable and turning cauliflower into…well… anything. It’s why they do what they do (or at least why you follow them).
And following their lead really is worth it, since research shows making your own meals means you’ll ingest fewer calories. You’ll also be less tempted to grab cholesterol-raising deep-fried falafel from that local food truck. Not to mention how much easier it will be to get through the afternoon slump if you’re powered by fresh veggies and clean protein.
You don’t have to recreate their exact recipes, but check out these five gorgeous, healthy Instagram salads for inspiration, and then start spinning and chopping ahead.
