I pack my lunch for work four days per week. Sometimes, it is super easy to get ideas for what to pack in my lunch and there are other days when I stare at the open fridge and have no ideas of what to pack.

Especially when I was pregnant, I found that if I packed something that I was not that interested in eating, I just wouldn't eat it. Instead, I turned to something less healthy from the kitchen at work and didn't feel my best.

I created this super delicious fruit, seed and spinach salad with a homemade strawberry vinaigrette because I knew that it would be very delicious and healthy. It is something that I would not get sick of eating and could make ahead of time and store in the fridge for a couple of days to enjoy through the week.

It is nutritious and quite filling. Top with your choice of chicken, feta or blue cheese or even quinoa or other whole-grains for a complete meal.

You can use whatever fruit you have on hand for it. Any kind of berries will work and so will pears, apples, stone fruits and dried fruits. I chose what looked best at my local grocery store and next time I make it, I will probably switch the fruit up again! I used seeds because I am all about the healthy fats. This recipe is vegan the way that it is made right now. That can change depending on if you add meat or cheese.

For this recipe, I used Enjoy Life Foods Beach Bash Seed and Fruit Mix which is super tasty! It contains sunflower kernels, pumpkin seeds, dried pineapple, apricots and cranberries. It is free of nuts which is perfect for those who want a healthy snack that is nut-free. It made the perfect crunchy and chewy salad topping as well.

All products from Enjoy Life Foods are free from the top 8 most common allergens in the USA include wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy, fish and shellfish. For those with allergies, I know that eating safe food is a huge concern and with this brand, you will not have to worry. They are made in an allergy-free facility meaning that these products will not be contaminated with these high allergy ingredients.

I recently made a brownie mix from Enjoy Life Foods and they were a big hit with my family! They were fudg For a healthy snack, I love both flavors of the seed and fruit mixes and for a chocolate treat, I like the dark chocolate morsel snack packs. They are great to cook with or to eat just as is.
