Yes, you can eat salad for breakfast! These healthy breakfast salads show you how easy (and delicious) eating salad for breakfast can be!
There’s something to be said for starting your day with a veggie packed meal. It not only gives your body a host of nutrients, fiber and energy, but it sets you up to crave healthy things the rest of the day!
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but lately I’ve been ALL about salads. This really isn’t anything new for me because I’ve always been a salad lover, but 2017 has definitely been the year of salads for me. I’ve fully embraced my salad obsession and I haven’t been shy about it. I’ve hosted several salad challenges and my brand new Salad Slim Down program just launched this week. It’s been so fun sharing the #saladeveryday movement and getting folks excited about eating salad again.
Most people think of salad as a lunch or dinner food, but I’m here to spread the word that salads can be for breakfast too!
Breakfast salads are such an easy way to load up on fresh vegetables (and/or fruit). You can toss them together pretty quickly and they’re light and fresh while still being filling. As long as you have a good source of protein and some healthy fats on there, the salad will keep you full until your next meal without weighing you down. And if you haven’t ever had a fried or poach egg on top of a salad you’re seriously missing out. It’s absolutely delicious!
Lately I’ve been experimenting with intermittent fasting, which I’ll share more on soon, but typically I don’t have my first meal until noon and it’s usually a salad. This works out great for me, but you can eat a breakfast salad whenever you normally enjoy your first meal of the day.
