Bulletproof Breakfast Salad

Bulletproof Breakfast Salad

Bulletproof Breakfast Salad recipe and content provided by Brent Totty

Upgrade your usual bacon and eggs routine by adding veggies to the mix with this easy breakfast salad. One of the keys to building a healthy lifestyle is finding simple and delicious ways to incorporate as many vegetables as you can. I’ve always made it a point to include at least two servings of vegetables in my first meal of the day, and this recipe just so happens to be one of the easiest ways to do so.

The beauty of this breakfast salad is in the way you prepare the eggs. Poaching the omega-3-packed, pasture-raised eggs creates a runny yolk that doubles as salad dressing.

I always cook my sweet potatoes ahead of time, so that they have a few hours to cool in the refrigerator before I need them. Doing so allows more resistant starch to form, effectively lowering the available carbohydrate calories in the potatoes. The more resistant starch you have in your diet, the more good bacteria can grow in your digestive system.

So next time you are feeling like bacon and eggs, whip up a breakfast salad instead.
