Fresh vegetables and herbs, the perfect fried egg and a side of fruit make this a healthy and satisfying meal.
I started embracing my green for breakfast when I was in college. I lived in the dormitories for two years and on most Saturday Morning I would have a track meet that I was competing in. I did my own research and decided the best way to maintain energy and endurance was by eating a really good breakfast. It was true!
I used to eat protein bars, on the bus, about 30 minutes before I needed to warm up. Then I wouldn’t eat until way later in the day. I can’t say I remember there being a major difference in my performance specifically, but I know that I felt better, no cramps or discomfort, and I knew I was treating my body better!
Now, we try to incorporate at least one kind of vegetable in our breakfast, whether it be avocado or some fresh herbs on eggs. Of course, there are days we don’t have anything fresh so we opt for oatmeal or some kind of healthy grain and fruit.
The picture with the breakfast essentials shows some of the components I usually have in the fridge that are super easy to add to any savory breakfast and how you end up with a breakfast salad!
I don’t like a completely cold meal, and this one happens to have warm eggs and sometimes we had some kind of natural meal like a local sausage (as shown below) or nitrate-free bacon.
