I love to eat salad but sometimes it can get pretty time-consuming to wash and dry the lettuce and get everything together to make a nice salad. Most of the time it’s just easier to grab something easy. Unfortunately though, those quick meals can be full of a lot of calories especially on the “go”.
Did you know that Fresh Express salads are already thoroughly washed, rinsed, gently dried and ready to eat? =) Their salads are then sealed in patented “Keep-Crisp®” breathable bags. I love that they are ready to eat and there’s no prep involved except whatever you want to add to it. They even sell salad kits that have everything you need, even the salad dressing for those that may want to bring a salad to work or don’t have much time to prepare a salad at home.
Fresh Express just recently introduced their 30 Day Salad Swap. What is a Salad Swap? When you feel like eating a Cheeseburger, BLT, or many other foods high in calories swap it for a salad that recreates that food’s flavor. That way it cuts down on the calories and a bonus; when you sign up for free at www.saladswap.com you can earn coupons for more salad! =) Upon signing up you will get instant access to their app that is completely compatible and ready for use with any computer, tablet or smart phone. There you can also find recipes, track your meals, calories and more..
The salads are tasty and taste fresh. They have many different kinds you can find in stores like Target, Shaws and other stores as well. The other day I decided to do a “Salad Swap”. You can find foods you may be craving and recipes that can help recreate that. I was a craving a BLT for lunch so I came up with my own recipe that was similar to some that was listed (with less ingredients).
BLT Salad Swap with Fresh Express Salad:
1 pkg Fresh Express 50/50 Mix
1/2 cup (2 oz) Turkey bacon, crisp & crumbled
3 small Tomatoes, chopped
1/2 Yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup your favorite Fat Free or Reduced Fat Ranch dressing
The Fresh Express Salad Swap is an awesome idea for anyone and the app is FREE! I’m currently trying to lose weight and eat healthier so this swap has been great!
