Mellow Yellow Breakfast Salad

This salad is da BOMB. And yes, you CAN eat salads for breakfast! I encourage you to do so. The combination of probiotics, prebiotics and antioxidants in this recipe make it an excellent choice for gut health and an immune boost.

Benefits

  • The plain Greek yogurt adds wonderful tartness and PROBIOTICS.
  • The Manuka honey adds a touch of sweetness and antioxidants (it also has antiviral properties).
  • The pear, banana, and butter leaf lettuce add fiber (think PREBIOTICS) and other wonderful nutrients.
  • The squeeze of lime will add some Vitamin C and other antioxidants.
  • Add nuts of your choice for additional protein and fatty acids.
  • Sprinkle some Ceylon cinnamon on top for additional antioxidants. Enjoy!!

Tips // Prep

  • This recipe is about as quick and simple as they come! No tips today.

Alternatives // Substitutions

  • For a non-dairy version, choose a plain, coconut milk yogurt or other non-dairy yogurt. Be sure to choose a yogurt with little to no added sugar.
  • For those needing to limit sugar and/or carbohydrate intake, leave out the Manuka honey and swap the banana for berries. Note that a slightly green banana will have less sugar and more fiber than a ripe banana.
  • Switch up the fruits and nuts as you desire! Berries would be another great fruit option.
  • Add a few small slices of leftover roasted chicken for extra protein.
