Healthy Breakfast Salad Recipes
Salad for breakfast might sound a bit bizzare especially here in the west. When we think of breakfast foods like eggs, oatmeal, and cereals tend to spring to mind and not a bowl of greens and assorted colours. However is there really a right way to eat the first meal of the day? People around the world eat a wide variety of breakfast foods, from rice to Vegemite to soups. What I use to eat back home in Ghana for breakfast, I will now class as lunch or even dinner.
So why not have salad for breakfast? I mean it’s a great start to getting our daily 5-a-day intake. Add some protein, such as an egg, tofu scramble, or quinoa to your morning produce, and you’ll be doing your body good andkeeping it fuelled the whole way to lunch. Check out the breakfast-ready salad recipes from Greatist.

Perfect for a midday meal, post-workout snack, or healthy dessert, this smoothie is truly great for any occasion. (source)
