I have a deep love and respect for breakfast. It helps wake up my brain, fuel my body, and gets things started on the right note. Food, or the absence of it, is so closely linked to my mood, that if I skip breakfast you might find me in tears by lunch. So with that in mind, it’s important for me to start my day off with something super nourishing. Lately this has meant a big ol’ hearty salad for breakfast. Does this seem weird to you? Let me explain why this has been so awesome for me.
