Sunrise Salad

Updated: Jun 11

Start your day with burst of freshness and energy with a Sunrise Salad. A vibrant, nutrient-packed breakfast salad that is delicious and healthy. A perfect way to fuel your day that does not leave you feeling heavy and sluggish. This meal is more specifically inspired as an option for an on-the-go breakfast that is not "sweet". That also leave me feeling fueled and squeaky clean. This is a meal you can prep the night before and grab on your way out the door in the morning.


When it comes to eating, one of my main guiding principles is to get in as many different colours as possible. That way I know I am getting in as many different variety of nutrients as possible, which will serve our gut biome well.
