Vegan Meal Prep - Tex-Mex Salad Bowl

So, I've been a little busy lately and my UberEats habit is getting outta control! Last week was a busy one and I knew that ahead of time so I decided to help myself out by meal prepping for the days I knew that I wasn't about to make dinner!


It's HOT here in Texas so I've been juicing like crazy and craving salads, especially tangy, sweet and savory ones like this Tex-Mex Salad Bowl that I made. I was able to get four servings from this recipe and it tasted fresh and delicious every single day.


Check out the video below for how I make it!
