Quick & Dirty Clean Eats: Breakfast Salad

Three words: sausage, egg, and cheese (SEC). Three more words: BACON, egg, cheese (BEC).

If you're a human person (because yes, there are nonhuman people), chances are these classic breakfast sandwiches have a place in your heart. However, many of us on a journey towards optimized health and wellness have had to abandon SECs and BECs in favor of our health goals...or so we thought.

Primal Example believes you should enjoy the foods and meals you love without the added bs associated with typical dietary offenders like bread and artifical ingredients. With summer coming up, salads are the go-to choice for lunch, so why not combine your breakfast sweetheart with your lunch boo?

Enter..THE BREAKFAST SALAD! Below is our recipe, but feel free to experiment with ingredients and quantities to create a salad as unique and sexy as you are. Our ingredients are organically sourced for a higher-quality meal, but don't beat yourself up if you can't get everything organic/free-range/heirloom/grass-fed. Also, be sure to customize your salad according to your current health/fitness goals.

In episode 54, we discuss why a protein-rich meal like the breakfast salad can keep you satisfied and help you tackle problematic cravings, so check that out while you meal prep!
