Salad Bowls at The Salad Station

Standard

Salad bowls (or bowl meals) have long been a favorite around Clean Kitchen because they are fast, versatile, and fill all the CK habits! Now we have a restaurant in Hattiesburg, MS dedicated to just that, and we couldn’t be more excited.

The Salad Station is a “build your own salad” place. Pile as much as you want in the bowl in any combination. You pay by weight of your bowl contents—which can be problematic if you do not have a plan. So naturally we wanted to help you navigate their huge selection on the salad bar.

In Clean Kitchen we plan! So here are 5 CK-Approved-bowls that won’t break the bank. All bowls were under $8, with dressing and tax included! After all, it’s all about portion sizes and having a plan!

The bowls you see here are the actual bowls I made, weighed, priced AND ate!

Pro tips:

  1. Always use the serving cups for your dressings so you don’t over pour and add $$ to your bowl.
  2. It’s not a bad idea to “meal prep” for several meals while you are there! If you plan to make multiple salads, just go before the busy hours around 10-11am or after lunch.

I often say to my son, You gotta do what you have to do, before you can do what you want to do.

Now, I am usually referring to him doing his homework or chores so he can play with his friends. But I am, in a simple way, training him with some sort of work ethic for mundane task and stating the facts of life that nothing is given.

Everything is earned in one way or another. He might as well learn that now with simple day-to-day routines, because I know in the long run it will translate over into other areas of his life.

You can apply this mantra to any part of life where you need to create some self-discipline. There are things you have to do in order to get the things you want.

Eat. Work. Sleep. Repeat.

Every single human does this daily. But not every person does this the same way. The amount, the time, and the quality of each step shapes pretty much everything we do in our daily lives, as well as our energy level, productivity and our body composition.
