Being a mom of three and working two jobs, means lunch is almost always on-the-go. Qualities that are must-haves in my lunches are convenience, portability, and clean/healthy/organic ingredients. When I recently found out about elevĀte salads I was super excited, because they go above and beyond all of these qualities while also being super delicious!

Eating clean at mealtimes is easy with elevĀte as their salads are packed with flavorful antioxidant-rich and superfood ingredients like ancient grains, plant-based proteins, nutrient-dense greens, nuts, legumes, and seeds. Nutritious and satisfying meals are now ready to go and filled with ingredients that will fuel your activities for the rest of the day. With 8 varieties to choose from, including vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, organic options there is something for everyone to enjoy!

I recently tried the nutty cranberry and southwest superfood salads and they tasted unbelievably fresh and savory! The way the salads are packaged greatly contributes to the crisp greens and fresh tasting ingredients. Each ingredient (i.e: nuts, seeds, vegetables, cheese, dressing) is in its own sealed compartment gently resting above the greens. This is also helpful if you are looking to avoid any specific ingredients in the salad, as you can easily just put aside anything included in the extra toppings. The serving size of these salads is generous and will definitely keep you full and satisfied until your next meal. Both salads were loaded with flavor and are an excellent protein-packed, omega 3- and 6- rich, vegetarian option for lunch or dinner!

More things to love about elevĀte salads is their convenience and price point. They are available at Wegmans in the produce section (with other pre-packed salad products). They also were just $4.49 which is a great price for the quantity and quality of natural ingredients you receive! Something else that you will notice when you pick up elevĀte salads on your next shopping trip is their packaging. Their bright and bold FSC certified packaging is printed with soy-based inks and is fully recyclable.

Aside from eating balanced lunches, I have included my top 3 tips for maintaining a clean and healthy diet.

Meal Plan Each Week: This is huge! Each week I plan out every meal so that not only can I keep my grocery shopping organized and efficient but when it comes to mealtimes their is no guesswork involved or temptations to get unhealthy takeout. elevĀte salads are definitely going to become a regular part of my mealtime planning!

Drink Plenty of Water: This is an obvious one, but sometimes it’s easy to forget to drink so I always keep a reusable water bottle closeby so that I can refill it as many times as I need throughout the day. It’s also easy to mistake thirst for hunger, so I always drink a glass of water before snacking to be sure I am not just thirsty.

Plan and Pack Daily Snacks: Hunger can hit hard — especially in mid-morning or late-afternoon. Be prepared with protein rich snacks so that you are ready to refuel your body with nutritious foods and not quick, carbo loaded options. Below are a few of my favorites to keep on hand throughout the day: DIY trail mix (with all my favorite nuts), a handful of almonds, almond butter and apples, hummus and veggies, medjool dates (for those sweet cravings).
