Gluten Free - Dairy Free - Refined Sugar Free
This easy peasy breakfast salad is a great way to start your day with a dose of some leafy greens (nutrients and fiver), healthy fat and protein. This digestion friendly breakfast is satiating and satisfying. A nice way to start the day off on the right foot. Don't get to caught up in the recipe, as this is a throw together dish that will most likely look different every time. Somedays I like my egg on top of the greens other days I like it on the side. Sometimes I add green chile, while other times I load up on olives. Let your mood (and refrigerator) decide for you.
If you are concerned that it may not be "hearty" enough for you, try adding one of our warming elixirs to drink with your meal. We recommend our Blender Matcha Latte, Golden Turmeric Milk or a chocolatey Coffeeless Mushroom Maca Mocha to complement your salad.
Adding fresh greens to your morning routine is a great way to avoid over-consuming refined carbs and sweets for breakfast. If you feel like you still want a little something sweet, no one is stopping you. Add some fresh berries, sliced kiwi or grapefruit on the side to quench that sweet tooth with low glycemic options. Bon appétit!
Simple Breakfast Salad
Prep: <10 minuts
Makes: 2 servings
- 4 cups mixed greens
- 1 avocado, chopped or sliced
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 lemon, cut into wedges
- 2 Tbsp. raw sunflower or pumpkin seeds
- 2 – 4 eggs, prepared to your liking
- Sea salt & black pepper to taste
Place mixed greens on a plate. Top with avocado (or olives, if you prefer) and seeds of choice. Drizzle with olive oil and fresh squeezed lemon wedge to your liking. Top with egg of choice (I like over-easy or poached best for salads). Add black pepper and sea salt to taste.
Prep: Wash and rinse your greens the night before, so they’re ready to use first thing in the morning. If you’re going the hardboiled egg route, you could pre-boil those a few days in advance to set yourself up for the week.
Mix It Up: Add whatever veggies you enjoy (sautéed tomato, cucumber, leftover roast sweet potato, shredded carrot, olives, etc.).
No Mixed Greens: Use spinach, kale or romaine instead. Don't box yourself in!
No Egg: Use any source of protein that appeals to you. Leftover salmon, veggie burger, hemp seeds or quinoa.
