Do you feel the need to start off your day with some light when you wake up already sweating? Or perhaps you know you have a day ahead filled with less than optimal eating – work lunch, dinner with friends? How about a breakfast salad? Load up on vegies early!
I have some leftover roast vegies in the fridge and needed something nutritious before yoga. Very quick to prepare too.
Moving away from traditional “breakfast foods” for breakfast has been an interesting shift for me. Talking to people from other cultures, Westerners seems to be the only cultures with specific breakfast foods. Why restrict ourselves to toast and cereal?
