Keto Paleo Lunch Salad For Home Or Work
One of my most popular posts is a roundup of keto lunches to bring to work! I realize that some of you might work at home, but most do not, and when you are out the options for a healthy lunch are scarce at best!
So I am trying to come up with more options for quick and easy, make ahead lunches that you can take to work so you can be successful with your keto paleo lifestyle!
Here I combined some pretty amazing powerhouses of nutrition: A small tasty and healthy fish, some lactofermented pickles, some delicious nutritious seeds, a great source of fat and a touch of leafy greens!
All this deliciousness can be quickly assembled the night before and be waiting for you in the fridge when you are ready to run out of the house in the morning. Or it can be eaten in your home office, as you scramble to get all the day’s work done before the kids come home!
Whichever way it will feed your brain and your muscles, and satiate your appetite so you are happy and free of cravings all day!
You can either chop the lettuce and mix it all together or you can serve the sardine and pickle mix on lettuce boats as an appetizer.
For the pickle I used this recipe, which is by far my favorite one! If you can make them yourself, I recommend getting some in the fridge section of your health food store.
The hemp hearts I use are Manitoba, they are the tastiest ones AND organic!
The sudried tomatoes are very important for flavor!!
Oh and the secret ingredient??? A couple of tablespoons of pickle juice!
