New Year’s feels like a lifetime ago. But it wasn’t that long ago when we were all promising to eat well, make it to the gym every week, and stay organized. Let’s face it: we could all use a refresher on these resolutions.
When it comes to healthy eating goals, we don’t have to tell you that salad is a healthy lunch choice. But salad doesn’t have to be boring or routine. The variations are endless, so odds are good that you’ll find at least one that strikes your fancy.
To help you spot your perfect match, here’s a salad matchmaking guide for the different personalities in your office. Do you see yourself in any of these recipes?
The Tech Innovator Salad
What It Is: This Tuscan salad is the perfect combination of protein and greens. A bed of arugula is topped with roasted portobello mushrooms, green beans, feta, red onions, and steak.
Why It’s Perfect for Tech Innovators: It’s so full of flavor: the juicy steak can even pull your tech team away from their projects!
The Project Manager with an Excel Addiction
What It Is: This Southwest salad starts with a bed of mixed greens, piled with bell peppers, mangoes, corn, and grilled chicken. Top it all off with a sprinkling of cilantro and a splash of cilantro lime dressing, and it’s ready for your project manager.
Why It’s Perfect for Project Managers: This salad couldn’t be more perfect for the Excel addict in your life! Its vibrant colors will remind them of their perfectly color-coordinated spreadsheets. And there is no shortage of different ingredients to sort, filter, or count in pivot tables.
The Sales Person on the Run
What It Is: This beautiful salad has a not-so-secret ingredient: it’s topped with mint! But this salad has more to it than mint. Layered atop a bed of spinach, you’ll find cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, shredded falafel, couscous, and a juicy lemon wedge.
Why It’s Perfect for Sales People: You may have noticed your sales team eating lunch quickly. It’s so they can hop back on the phones or run out to do walk-ins. That minty and lemony freshness will keep them feeling their best when delivering their pitch post-lunch.
What It Is: The boss’ salad starts with a bed of baby spinach and is loaded with avocado, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, and grilled chicken. Then, top it off with some shredded basil and honey balsamic vinaigrette.
Why It’s Perfect for CEOs: The CEO is always busy. She is constantly hopping in and out of complicated meetings and negotiating new things for the company. That’s why when it comes to his food, he wants it as uncomplicated as possible. This loaded caprese is the perfect salad to keep your CEO energized and focused – for whatever’s next on the agenda.
