Quick healthy breakfast #2
We know, we know, salad for breakfast sounds weird if you're used to inhaling coffee and toast, but trust us, this salad is delicious and nutritious!
Ingredients: Pre-washed baby spinach, 1 apple, almonds and/or walnuts, raisins, vinaigrette, eggs, extra-virgin olive oil, salt & pepper
What you get: Vitamin C, A, E, B, D, K, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, folic acid, protein, long-term energy, improved insulin absorption and less heart burn.
Directions: Place a handful of spinach on a plate. Scatter thinly sliced apple over the top. Saute in extra virgin olive oil -- or chop up raw, almonds or walnuts & add with a sprinkling of raisins to the salad. Drizzle your favorite vinaigrette* over everything.
Lastly, fry or scramble an egg or two as you like using the extra virgin olive oil. Salt and pepper as desired then place on the top of your salad; grab a big glass of water and sit down to enjoy a breakfast that gives you more long-term energy than any coffee-n-pastry combo on the planet.
TIP: If you don't like eggs or you're just extra-hungry in the morning, replace the eggs with some chicken breast, salmon or even last night's steak sliced up into thin strips.World's simplest tangy-n-sweet vinaigrette:
Mix 3 parts extra virgin olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar + dash of salt & pepper + tbsp honey.
