Though it may not be the first thing that comes into mind when thinking about a healthy breakfast, according to top nutritionists and dietary experts, a salad is perhaps one of the best things you can add to your diet. In fact, in recent years there has been an increase in the number of people turning to salads as a solution for their poor diet and lack of exercise. The reason for this is that a salad is a great source of energy, which helps kick start your day. And because it’s so high in nutrients, you won’t feel hungry again anytime soon. Just make sure to have some light dressing on the side so you don’t feel too weighed down. So, how does one go about making a salad? One of the best ways would be to pay a visit to your kitchen and whip up some breakfast salad! All you need is: A handful of fresh spinach leaves (with watercress if possible); Half a cup of cooked quinoa; A small chopped carrot; A tablespoon of raw seeds (pumpkin, chia, sunflower); Half an avocado, sliced into wedges; Two to three tablespoons of low-fat yogurt dressing A few slices of cucumber and some chopped tomatoes for added taste. Some fresh herbs like basil, mint, or even rosemary would also be great. If you’re an egg lover and don’t want to give up on your favorite breakfast, simply scramble some eggs and toss them in with the salad. Alternatively, if you want to reduce calorie intake, use egg whites instead of whole eggs – one whole egg has almost 50 calories; while one white has only 17 calories! A healthy dressing is also very important, as it’s what will make or break your salad. If you’re on a low-fat diet, try using Italian dressing instead of mayonnaise for added flavor and taste. For those who are conscious of health issues, the best thing to do would be to prepare their own homemade dressings. This way they can make sure that the salad is indeed healthy, without any hidden ingredients.
