I love to eat salad for breakfast, do you,, Dear Readers? A salad can be most anything. You can take chili and combine it with leftover green beans or salad greens or coleslaw, for example. You could top some lettuces with pasta and sauce or fresh, crispy spinach with a fried egg and feta cheese. How about making a baked potato and serving it topped with an egg, cheese, and kale? Sound yummy? Yep. Sound healthy? Double yep. Sound doable? Triple yep. Why are you not doing it?
Here are easy and healthy ways to make a bunch of salads for work or alternative breakfasts:
1. Wash and boil a whole bunch of sweet potatoes and then drain them. Place each sweet potato in a microwave-safe container, split them in half top each with olive oil and then with feta cheese. Once the food has cooled, cover them and store in the refrigerator or freeze for later.
2. Wash an assortment of greens such as kale, spinach or lettuces. Divide the greens between containers and that way you could just grab one before you go to work. Top each container of greens with whatever you like be that leftover roasted root vegetables, carrots, cheeses, potatoes or hard boiled eggs. Keep your favorite olive oil and/or vinegar or even lemons at work and that way you always have a healthy dressing available.
3. Use up that leftover pasta by reheating it with some greens. *Please be careful about microwaving greens because they can become carcinogenic, so keep that in mind.
