Salad for breakfast, why not?
Here’s a breakfast themed salad I often have (or some variation of it) when I have zucchini on hand (which is, as you know, whenever they happen to be on sale).
I think of it more like a slaw, since the zucchini & carrots are grated (it’s a medium grate, not fine or too big).
The hemp seeds add some protein & omega-3′s, & more importantly, some crunch.
Pair this breakfast slaw with your favorite smoothie recipe (there are so many!), a small bowl of oatmeal, or brown rice cakes topped with mashed avocado (one of my fave things to eat, any time of day!).
- 2 zucchini, grated
- 2 carrots, peeled & grated
- 1 c. frozen (or fresh) blueberries
- 1 fuji apple, diced
- 2-3 stalks celery, finely chopped
- 2 TBS. soy or almond milk
- 1 TBS. hemp seeds (or more, for extra protein)
- Stevia in the Raw to taste OR 1 TBS. agave
Toss all ingredients, except for the hemp seeds. Sprinkle some hemp seeds over top of each serving.
