Salad for Breakfast

As a family we tend to eat plenty of carbohydrates thoughout the day; be it snacking on bread, crisps or cake; or potato, rice, or pasta for lunch and dinner. We aim to eat a breakfast that packs a nutritional punch for a good start, and then a follow up of porridge or cold potatoes as a second breakfast if needed.

Salad with chicken


The idea behind this meal is to split it into the ratio 3 parts vegetables to 1 part protein, plus a small amount of fat, then carbohydrates should be eaten afterwards as a snack. The net result is a balanced meal with a split betwen carbohydrates and protien.

Get creative with colour, use the ingredients that you and your family enjoy.
