Healthy Habit Hack: Fresh Salad for a Week+

This post may contain affiliate links. 

When it comes to making the whole 'vegan' and 'healthy' thing work, meal planning and prepping is a must.  I've mentioned before that I try to prep as much as possible on Sundays so that everything is set for the week, but the question that I get most often is about how I keep things fresh until the end of the week.  How am I eating for lunch on Friday what I prepped on Sunday?  I figured I could start by telling you about how I can make salad on Sunday and keep it fresh all week long.


As Told By John

John pulled his first 48 hour straight shift at the firehouse this past weekend.  I mean, on the plus side he had 3 days off in a row before and now has 3 days off after, but it was still a chunk of time to be away.  And I spent the whole weekend pet sitting my parents dogs, but even though wrangling 3 pups keeps you busy, we still found time in the days for a lot of texting.  I even found a 'boyfriend tag' on the internet so I decided to record his answers to some questions about me as a blog post, because why not on a Monday morning.  Wondering how well he knows me?  Read on:

Do I have any weird obsession(s)?  If so, what?
That's NOT weird, dude.  You're weird if you're not obsessed with her.  And for the record, he's just as obsessed so I don't know why he's calling me out!  As for what I think the answer would have been?  Nicolas Cage.  He definitely agreed when I told him that one.  He then also added "oh and that thing where you go in the makeup store and come out with your hand covered in colors but you don't buy anything."  It's Sephora, and it's called swatching, and it's not weird.
