The How To: Breakfast Salad-FOllow our Passion

Hey buggies!

I hope you all had a wonderful fourth of July! Those of you here in the states..

I decided to keep it low-key and chill in my apt. // go on some hikes and binge watch Netflix, last week was crazy busy for me and this week too SO. I took some me time.

Any who…

I’ve been meaning to share this post for a while…

If you babes follow me on Instagram and you watch my stories than I am pretty sure you’ve seen my obsession with breakfast salads.

I’ve been getting tons of questions about how I create these breakfast salads and truth be told.

They kind of shape themselves.

I don’t put much thought, I just kind of check out what I have in the fridge and go from there. Regardless I wanted to show you the how to guide.

I do like to keep the balanced, healthy fats, greens, protein and some healthy carb.

The How TO Guide- Breakfast Salad- FOLLOW OUR PASSION

FIRST..

You need a base

Arugula.

Micro greens.

Romaine lettuce.

Baby spinach.

Kale.

Or a mixture of all of the above. I really use what I have on hand. I will admit that I have been known to head to Whole Foods cause its like a 20 minutes walk JUST for greens.

THEN.

You need to decide what fillers you want.

This can range from, roasted sweet potatoes, roasted apples in bacon fat with cinnamon and cardamon, ( my newest obsession), roasted tomatoes, avocado slices or a whole one in my case, any roasted veggies you want.

PROTEIN

This can be in the form of an egg, poached or fried, hey scrambled even works here. I personally like using the poached or fried, mainly cause I LOVE the yolk when it breaks. If you wanna keep it vegan you can use roasted chickpeas. Or maybe some black bean fritters. Or if you are a bacon lover like myself you can add some crispy bacon slices. I LOVE LOVE when they are thick slabs of bacon. YUMMM.

SAUCE IT UP

You wanna add one of the following, cashew cheese sauce, cause HELLO why not?

Lemon and olive oil, you can’t go wrong with this combo.

Pesto cause it brightens life.

Hummus.

FINALLY.

Right before you dig in, I finish my off with some tasty AF and crunchy millet croutons.

Before we take off into salad breakfast land I wanna share why I am crushing on these crunchy bites of goodness.

FIRST of all they are, vegan, gluten free, non-gmo (which is  BIG one for me) and are total comfort food without the guilt and when I say guilt I mean they don’t make me sick, bloat or anything.

PLUS millet is so good for you, it’s high in magnesium, calcium, fiber, manganese and it is a complete protein!

My favorite ones are the original which have sea salt + onion flakes.

I am also loving the Italian ones SO good.

SO where do these awesome crispy bites come from? My friends at ROLLINGREENS

  1. I’ve never heard of breakfast salad but it sounds interesting. I’m not a huge fan of fried eggs, but I might give it a try.

  2. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of a breakfast salad and now I’m wondering why! What an awesome way to fuel your day without the carbs.

  3. I read the title and was like “no way”! I love salads, so I would totally try this during brunch. The spinach looks great.

  4. When I think of salad I usually think of brunch but you have taken it to a whole different level! This looks like a yummy and healthy way to enjoy greens and protein without too many carbs or grease.

  5. I am laughing so hard here. I always get mocked for my breakfast salads. “You vegans are crazy”. Yeah… maybe. But look at this. A non vegan eating salad for breakfast! I LOVE YOU! Just shared this with my entire WhatsApp list. 😂💚

    1. Hahahaha. Trust me I get that all the time, the weird looks because I am having a salad for breakfast LOL. So glad you liked it Gloria. your comment made my day 🙂

  6. I’m not generally a salad person because I don’t like many dressings, but that picture looks delicious. It reminded me I can eat my eggs runny again. Time for breakfast, hopefully I have some greens in the house. 🙂

  7. Very nice and healthy looking too! I enjoy breakfast but it’s a simple meal for me with fruit, yoghurt or oatmeal or toast and coffee. I need to try this though I’d more likely have this for lunch. YUM!

  8. What a great idea. My oldest daughter is one of the biggest salad eaters I’ve ever seen. She would LOVE this.

  12. I can’t believe it’s never occurred to me to have a salad for breakfast. Especially because I enjoy a salad a day, sometimes twice a day. I need to make your breakfast salad one day.

  13. this is such anutritious and healthy meal to have for breakfast, salad here looks nice and i love the mix as its vegan and has loads of protein and other stuffs which for me makes it unique.

  14. The weather is so hot, so I am really craving a delicious breakfast salad. I have all the greens already so I like the sound of some delicious sweet potato as well! x

  15. I am a fried egg fanatic so this salad has me drooling. The best of both worlds. I’m actually genuinely curious now how a cucumber would taste dipped in yolk.

  16. this is cute !! Sometime i feel like i am a cow when eating salad !!But its nice to add salad in breakfast thanks for the change recipe you shared

  17. This looks like a yummy breakfast salad. I have never had a salad for breakfast, but I do like them any of time of the day. Why not through an egg on it and have it first thing in the morning?!

  18. That’s a nice salad! I really love different salads for breakfast and dinner.
    My recent obsession is spinach, peaches, sunflower seeds and feta cheese!

  19. What a great idea. My husband and I lived in Japan for three years and having salad (and miso soup) was the norm there. Sometimes we still have it now that we live back at home in the states. I should do it more often. Thanks for the reminder!
