Let me just start by saying, this is not a food blog; however, we are still at the beginning of the year and people are still on a health kick! I did something the other day that surprised me – I ate a salad for breakfast! Now, I'm the type of person who does not like dinner food for breakfast such as: steak, chicken, fish, shrimp, etc. The only exception would be if it's in an omelette, but typically I like each of my meals to have a different taste.
When I got up the other day, I really wanted some veggies for breakfast, but I didn't not necessarily want broccoli or spinach (dinner food). I was thinking about what I had in my fridge and what I could make easily and quickly – spring mix!
Hmmm...maybe I could make a breakfast salad?
I pulled out the spring mix, two eggs, strawberries, craisins, cheese, and bacon and got to work! I was really please with the result, and I thought is was worth sharing I you're looking for ways to switch up your breakfast! I'll post the recipe and instructions below; if you make it be sure to tag me so I can see your creation!
Cheers to a #Healthy2020
