A lot of people have a hard time with breakfast. Either they don't like it, aren't hungry in the mornings, or have the same old, same old every morning. And it's no wonder why; we've been brought up on toast and cereal for breakfast. While these aren't necessarily bad options, they aren't very balanced meals; all carbs and no protein can lead our blood sugar levels to spike, leaving us "hangry" by mid-morning.
Instead we recommend the "Complete in 3" rule at every meal: a healthy balance of protein, fibre/carbs and healthy fats. This is where the Breakfast Salad comes in.
You can use the exact ingredients below or you can get creative and add other yummy goodies!
2 hard boiled eggs
6-8 grape tomatoes
Sprinkle of Hemp Hearts
Salt and pepper
Other possible goodies might include:
Roasted root veggies (beets, yams, carrots)
Little bit of feta cheese
Nuts and/or seeds
Different fruit: berries, kiwi, Apple, pear
Drizzle of olive oil
Really the sky is the limit. The key is to hard boil a big batch of eggs on your food prep day so they are ready to go as the foundation or as the bread and butter of your Breakfast bowl, shall we say.
Go ahead, get creative and eat the rainbow for breakfast!
