Salad is an easy, healthy, and delicious dish. This savoury dish takes less than an hour to make but keeps you full for hours. There are many types of salads originating from different parts of the world. Each salad is made unique with its dressing, which can be a mixture of sweet, savoury or sour! Not only is it easy to prepare, but the ingredients are also easy to get and can be seen on any grocery store. Instead of grabbing cups of instant noodles, grab some leafy greens and salad dressings. Keep the vegetables in airtight containers to ensure longer shelf life. You will have no problem with the dressings as they last much longer. Or, make your own dressing; olive oil mix with vinegar is one of the most classic dressings to make, easy and tasty at once.
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods in the world. It is rich in vitamins A, B12, B2 and B5, as well as nutrients like iron and phosphorus. A single egg can make you full for hours. They are inexpensive and can be found in any supermarket. Eggs can last a long time in the refrigerator, making it one of the best options to stock up on. Eggs can be cooked in various methods, depending on your preference, and accompanied with everything from toasts to soups. Eggs are a good choice but remember not to overeat them!
Yoghurt is a fermented dairy product that is an excellent option for breakfast or snacks. It comes in different flavours like strawberry or mixed berries and is usually accompanied with fresh fruits or granolas (they do just as well without them). It is a tasty and simple option that must be considered. You can stock up on these as they last for quite a long time. And if you prefer plant-based yoghurts, there are non-dairy yoghurts made of coconuts, almonds, oats, and so on.
Oats or oatmeal is a perfect option for breakfast. They are gluten-free and are a great source of nutrition. It can be found in most stores and take little time to cook; they are easily stored and have a long shelf-life.
