I bet the thought of having a salad for breakfast has never crossed your mind. Especially if you’re not a big fan of eating first thing in the morning, a bowl of leafy greens and other crunchy veggies probably doesn’t sound that appealing. But breakfast salads have plenty benefits worth waking up for.
Naturally, leafy greens are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and disease-fighting nutrients like chlorophyll. This pigment giving plants their vibrant green colour is known for its blood-building properties and wound-healing abilities. Getting more leafy greens into your diet also supports healthy bones, reduces inflammation and protects you against heart disease and cancer. And since statistics show most of us still don’t eat enough veggies, breakfast salads are a great head-start to get those health-boosting nutrients in!
You can go sweet by adding fresh fruit to your salad or choose the full-on savory route with eggs, smoked salmon, spices or herbs. No matter if you follow the autoimmune protocol, a low-carb diet or simply enjoy a hearty meal, get inspired by these 9 breakfast salads to get you off to a flying start!
