Something that will really fill your hungry stomach because after all, we only live once. We might as well spend it munching on the best meals that we could ever come across. Well, ladies, we’re all advocates of healthy living here, but that doesn’t mean you have to eat the worst greens you could ever find.

What else can you ask for? These light meals are seriously worth making for yourself. The best part is that these recipes help you stay healthy and fit and strong.

15 Victoria Beckham’s Fruit Salad
While other celebrities spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on their birthday, Victoria Beckham is the total opposite. She loves to spend as little as possible on her birthday. Why? We don’t know. But we do know that on her b-day back in 2012, all she had was a fruit salad, which is probably her favorite. Yes people, you read that right. Of all the things she could ask for and of all the things she could afford, she bought tons of fruit and made herself some salad. And no, it’s not salad with cake or another birthday food. Just salad. Who knew birthday celebrations had taken such a sharp turn? But then again, if you want to eat nothing but blueberries and mangos and strawberries and oranges plated gorgeously on your birthday, then go for it. It’s still a healthy meal so what’s so wrong with V Beckham’s salad?
14 Jennifer Aniston’s Chickpeas, Cheese, And Cucumber Salad

Apparently, the Friends star is a huge fan of chickpeas and cucumber and feta cheese. No other cheese. Just feta cheese. Her salad is a mix of bulgur wheat, feta cheese, red onions, mint, parsley, cucumber and the star of the salad, the chickpeas. Now you know how Jennifer Aniston is maintaining her body: she focuses on healthy, amazing salads.

And because Aniston is always working hard with so many projects on her plate, she obviously needs meals that will fuel her with enough energy. This salad does that.
