Breakfast salad

Salads are not just for lunch or supper, they work as breakfast options as well. So if you are really not sure what you want as a healthy breakfast, look at what you have in your fridge and mix them together as a breakfast salad.

Take some hard boiled eggs, arugula, hummus, cherry tomatoes, fresh cheese, and avocado, mix everything in a big bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice.
