This Middle Eastern-inspired salad was one of my favorite meals during my three-day experiment. I was jonesing for a refreshing, produce-filled salad on a hot day and couldn't wait to dig into this vegetarian-friendly salad. While I definitely could have used more produce — only three grape tomatoes were included in my meal — I loved the thick cucumber-mint dressing, crunch of the toasted pita chips, and the fact that a vegetarian protein was added to the mix. This light lentil salad offered 14 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber, and it filled me up for under 300 calories.
