There’s a new food trend on the block. Breakfast salads.
Before you start gagging, open your mind. Instead of scarfing down carbs and sugar only to crash by 10:30 in the morning, why not load up on protein, veggies, and other delicious shit so that, come lunch, you’re not diving into the biggest bowl of carbonara you can find?
If you’re on a quest for the perfect bikini bod and would rather die than be chubby, try this shit. We’ve compiled three of our fav breakfast salad combos for your nomming pleasure.
Obvs, grapefruit was like, the OG betch diet. But, because it isn’t 1999, we’re elevating the citrus fruit to a chic salad. After removing the skin, pith, and segmenting your grapefruit, mix a bit of the juice with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Grab some arugula and toss with the juice mixture. Top with the grapefruit and a dollop of fresh ricotta cheese. Feel free to sprinkle on some walnuts for an extra protein kick, too.
Grab some baby spinach and toss with a bit of olive oil, lemon, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle on some diced prosciutto then top with a freshly poached egg—or sunny side up if you haven’t mastered that shit yet. The yolk will act as even more dressing. Shit, if you really need carbs, toast a slice of whole wheat bread, then cut into small cubes to act as “croutons.”
If you’re craving a bagel with lox, cream cheese, and capers, ditch the carbs and go green instead. Layer some baby arugula on a plate, halve a few kalamata olives, and layer on some really fucking good smoked salmon. Throw on a few sliced tomatoes and drizzle the whole thing with a combination of 4 tbsps plain Greek yogurt, 1 tsp grated horseradish, 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill, and a squeeze of lemon.
Hooray for ditching carbs and sugar! I mean, if you still need to sneak a donut, we won’t judge.
