Scavenging for Salads: The Ultimate Guide to Healthy Lunches in Cairo
Need a salad to keep you going this Sunday? These salads will make you feel like you were just born again every day of the week.
When we think of the picture of health, we think of our beginning-of-the-week energy. The very first days when we’re practically skipping into our respective offices and lecture halls with pep, herbal tea in hand and hair properly washed. It is on these days that we’re so full of life, so full of hope that we can’t let the carb-y connotation of a shawarma soggy our spirits - only a salad would be able to keep up.
So, at the start of the week, we went scavenging for salads (and other bowl-form meals that serve the same preppy purpose), and put together this comprehensive guide to healthy lunches in Cairo.
SELF Health House
Grilled baby corn, mixed greens, black beans and a dream - SELF’s Cobb salad is just the plant-protein-heavy lunch to munch on alongside one of the health house’s famous smoothies.

Fancy a midday trip to Hawaii? Let’s Poke’s peanut shrimp wakame bowl flaunts marinated shrimp and sharp ginger for a jolting afternoon treat.
