This Low Calorie Weight Loss Salad is the perfect lunch or dinner to boost your weight loss! Using only ingredients that naturally boost metabolism, and an Apple Cider Vinegar dressing. I packed this detox salad with fat burning ingredients!. I love to make it as a meal prep lunch, and have supplied directions on how to do so in the recipe card below.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • ½ cup sliced red cabbage
  • ½ red bell pepper (chopped)
  • ¼ cucumber (sliced)
  • 1 carrot (shredded or sliced thin with a vegetable peeler)
  • 3 radishes (sliced)
  • ½ avocado
  • 2 tablespoons almonds
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
  • ¼ cup chickpeas or try these roasted chickpeas

Healthy Weight Loss Salad Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep: To meal prep a salad, add all the ingredients to individual meal prep containers, or family sized containers. Add the dressing to a separate container and do not add it until you are ready to serve.
Storage: Will hold in the fridge for 4-5 days, does not hold well in the freezer.
Serving: If you added the dressing and the salad gets soggy, add it to a sandwich wrap or large tortilla. It’s a great way to salvage leftover soggy salad.

This weight loss salad is the perfect detox salad. Packed with fat burning and metabolism boosting ingredients you're sure to boost weight loss with this yummy salad!
I like to make this with roasted chickpeas, but often when I don't have time to do it, I just drain and rinse a can of chickpeas and use them un-roatsed. This saves time and sodium, but I have included the recipe for the roasted chickpeas below.
Special Tip: I recommend using the weight loss dressing I have supplied. It's made with fat burning and detoxifying apple cider vinegar, and also tastes amazing! It's wonderful for weight loss!!
