Break away from carrying conventional lunches to work, and go for some healthy salads instead! A lunch salad is not only crunchy and tasty but also very satiating – to be a meal by itself.

You can carry the salad and dressing separately and toss them together just before eating your lunch. This Vegan Healthy Lunch Salad is one such scrumptious option that you can carry to work.

This salad is a melange of ingredients with varied textures and tastes, from veggies and mushroom to greens and soaked dal. It is full of antioxidants from capsicum, lettuce and tomatoes, and omega-3 fats from pumpkin seeds.

Take a step towards a healthier lifestyle, by replacing your rice or roti based lunch with this healthy salad!

The vibrant colours in this salad clearly drew me to it and tried it for my office. The objective was to just have this as a meal and nothing else. Worked perfect. Big plus it was healthy and really tasty. Made my lunch box to carry to work much lighter. Thanks.
