Salad for Breakfast: It’s a Thing

Saturday, January 28, 2017

If you’re looking to create a healthy change in your diet, why not try including a salad in your morning meal? Because you should never say no to salad, whatever the time of day.

That being said, I really, really wanted pizza for breakfast this morning.

No, I’m not talking about grabbing a couple of cold slices from the refrigerator from last night’s pizza, that special morning treat we all enjoy; I didn’t even have pizza last night.

What I’m talking about is ordering an entire pizza, straight from the oven, a full-on New York-style pie oozing with cheesy goodness and extra sauce, just that way I love it.

Even so, I decided to have a salad.

There’s no rule whatsoever that you can’t have salad for breakfast, after all. Though I did scramble a couple of eggs and make a fantastic piece of whole grain rye toast to accompany, so it was still breakfast-ish. Not that I care about such things—and you shouldn’t either. Very few people consume the amount of veggies recommended for optimal health and wellness, and this is one of those happy places in life where more is definitely better. So don’t hold back when it comes to salad, whatever the time of day.

And, while I have a definite thing for pizza, like any card-carding New Yorker, I also adore salad.

Also, there were no pizza places open at 8.30am.
