On weekends I like to treat myself. I like to starting my mornings in a healthy way. The idea of salad for breakfast may seem a bit strange but it is a great way to get a jump start on getting those recommended daily servings of vegetables. On any given day it is a struggle for me to consume one measly cup of raw veggies. I find that when I start with salad for breakfast, it motivates me to make healthier eating choices throughout the day.
I must confess that my salads don't require a recipe. They are dictated by what's in season and what I happen to have on hand. Here is a rough guide for you to follow.
Cherry Tomato Salad with Sprouts and Toast
1 tablespoon goats cheese crumbled
1 stalk chive, chopped
5 grapes, halved
5 black olives, halved
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
pinch of red pepper flakes
1 slice toast
1 tablespoon hummus
1 soft boiled egg
alfalfa sprouts (as much or as little as you like)
Mix all the salad ingredients together. Spread hummus on toast and serve with alfalfa sprouts.
