Chopped Cashew Salad
In a rush but still in need of a satisfying and delicious lunch option? Try this!
With a premade salad kit and healthy fats and protein, you will be eating happily in no time! If keeping bagged salad in your fridge makes it easier to eat vegetables, it is definitely worth the cost of convenience.
Try different varieties to switch up your salad base for a different flavor and crunch. If cashews are not a favorite, try another nut. But be sure your nuts aren’t overly salted or sweetened. This can make them less healthy and less diabetes-friendly!
