Cold Food Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I am getting a little tired of hot and heavy meals. Does anyone have recipes for light cold food, other than salads? FYI - 

I am not fond of avocados

 

Any suggestions?

This has been discussed a tonne. Google "Whole30 brown bag", "Whole30 picnic", "Whole30 road trip" and "Whole30 cooler" for lots of ideas.

There's some ideas here.  One thing I like to do when it's a zillion degrees outside is grill chicken and maybe some kind of beef (steaks, skirt steak/fajita meat), and make some hard boiled eggs, and then make several different salads, but not like your typical lettuce-y salads. Things like this broccoli salad, this Turkish salad, these cucumber noodles -- make a couple that will last several days, and then midweek you may need to make some others, just so you don't end up with any getting soggy before you eat them. I usually include some kind of potato salad or even just boiled potatoes that I toss with some olive oil and herbs and eat cold.  Then I can just grab some protein and two or three scoops of whichever vegetables sound good for lunch or supper without having to cook a lot throughout the week. I know you said no salads, but to me, these aren't really salads, they're just vegetables that happen to be cold.
