Avocado Egg Salad
The best part about this avocado salad is that it can be prepared quickly and enjoyed as is or as part of a wrap or sandwich. Avocados and eggs are high in protein and healthy fats, so this salad is also beneficial.
Mexican Kale Salad
Swapping out iceberg lettuce for kale turns this into a superfood bowl packed with vitamins A, K, and C, calcium, potassium, and manganese. The Mayo Clinic Health System calls kale a weight-friendly green, making this salad a great light and nutritious way to wrap up a day.
Chickpea Salad
Garbanzo beans or chickpeas are one of the key ingredients for hummus, but they can also be consumed independently, like in this Moroccan chickpea salad. Chickpeas are an excellent nutrition powerhouse as they contain amino acids, vitamins A, E, and C, and can help with weight control.
Moroccan Couscous
Made with semolina and water, couscous is probably more related to pasta than grain or seed, per Food Network. As such, it would make a light yet flavorful main dish — and a healthy one with the addition of chickpeas or garbanzos.
Roasted Butternut Squash
This salad offers a range of flavors, colors, and textures that will liven up any dining table with its mixture of greens, seeds, fruit, and cheese that can serve as a hearty meal on its own. And if carbs are not an issue, this dish is perfect with a warm dinner roll or a chunk of a baguette.
