My favorite meal is a salad. Without a doubt, I love how easy they are to make and how versatile they can be. Obviously, I enjoy eating salads for lunch and dinner. But have you every enjoyed a salad for breakfast? I absolutely have. And I love it. With the right ingredients, a delicious salad will keep me satisfied well into the lunch hour. And on a really busy day, a hearty salad will hold me over well into the dinner hour. (Excluding the handful of cashews that I tend to nosh on around 2pm.)
Here’s a roundup of all the salads I’ve enjoyed breakfast. Hopefully, you’ll love them just the same as I do!
Pomegranate, Arugula Salad
If you’re the typical breakfast skipper, stop. Before you head towards the door in the A.M., grab a quick arugula salad. Topped with slices of parmesan cheese and yummy pomegranate seeds, this salad will fill you with the nutrients you need without weighing you down. Plus, it’s super simple to make.
A Garden Salad with Waffle Croutons
A fresh garden salad makes for the perfect morning meal. Especially when you include waffles. Skip the croutons and instead, add your favorite toasted waffle to the mix. For an added treat, top the salad off with crumbled blue cheese and a teaspoon of light maple syrup.
Kale is the super food of the century. Start your morning off with a cup of kale, mixed with tomatoes and eggs for a delicious dose of fiber, protein and other necessary nutrients.
Raw Fruit Salad
There’s no need to weigh yourself down in the morning with a heavy bacon and egg breakfast or a doughnut. Instead, start the day with a fresh bowl of mixed fruit. A delicious fruit salad will give you enough energy to last through lunch without a crash and burn effect or the unnecessary calories.
Smokes Salmon Salad
Of all the little fishes in the deep blue sea, salmon is the one to love most. Yes, fish is a meat. But the Omega-3 fatty acids do wonders on the skin and is delicious on my tongue. So for this, I had to make an exception. Mix a few sliced pieces of salmon with salad leaves, dried black olives, and cherry tomatoes for an extra delicious breakfast treat.
