Meal prepping is better for your wallet and your health! When you take the extra step, and prepare yourself for success you will reap the benefits both physically and financially. Salads are one of those tricky meals that you might think is a healthy option when eating out, but often hide lots of hidden sugar/carbs/sodium and FAT! It’s all about what goes into the salad and that includes the dressing. Watch my breakdown of these 3 to-go salads VS my homemade chicken salad.
