5 Filling Salad Recipes To Add To Your Recipe Bullet Journal

by Ambassador Team 27 Apr 2023 0 Comments

Hi! It’s Temi of Living Letter Plans, here to share 5 delicious, healthy, filling salad recipes, and bullet journal recipe spreads to match! A recipe journal is a fabulously fun and aesthetically pleasing way to collect a great amount of recipes to go to when you’re looking for some culinary inspiration. My bullet journal is my main way I look after my health and adding some recipes to the mix is a great way to ensure you’re eating well!

Now for a disclaimer, I am not a chef or a nutritionist, I am a woman who loves cooking and journaling, and has some big health goals to work towards, so these spreads and filling salad recipes are going to help me, and hopefully you along the way. I’ve even created free printables of the recipes so you can print and add these to your journal if you’d prefer!
