Breakfast Salad for the big fat win! Am I the only one who doesn't like cooking breakfast for several minutes every morning? On weekdays, in particular, I often need us to take a quick breakfast so I can carry on with homeschooling, blogging and all other tasks for the day.
BUT my girls don't like cereal every morning. Or the typical African bread and tea. Sometimes they want mama to make something fancier like pancakes or waffles. And I often tell them that that will sadly eat into our school time.
So I've been on the lookout for quick and easy breakfast recipes that taste delicious and feel very continental and this Breakfast Salad fits right in. It is ready in no time yet it is fresh, crunchy, creamy and so good. My favorite thing to eat it with is bread and viola I have a complete meal!
So try this simple breakfast salad, friends! The only cooking involved is hard boiling the eggs and that can be done the day before. Also, it is loaded with avocado which is highly nutritious. Starting your day with avocado is the smart healthy delicious way to start one's day!
AVOCADO FOR BREAKFAST BENEFITS
Avocados provide several nutrients including Vitamins C, E, K, B-5 and B-6. It also contains potassium, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, magnesium, beta-carotene, omega-3 and lutein. Avocado contains a lot of healthy fats that help absorb nutrients from other foods. It is so healthy for the heart, for eyesight and helps prevent diseases like osteoporosis and cancer. Also, avocado detoxifies the body and helps with digestion. It is the perfect fruit to start your day with!
