Whole30 Bacon & Strawberry Breakfast Salad

Whole30 Bacon & Strawberry Breakfast Salad

Breakfast salad. You read that right, we’re switching things up around here. This isn’t your typical breakfast meal prep idea. Now before you give us the side eye and go back to that plate of hashbrowns, hear us out. We were thinking about calling this The Best Dang Salad You’ve Ever Had That Just Happens to Be For Breakfast, but it didn’t quite have the same ring to it, you know? Let’s dive in. Arugula, strawberries, avocado, eggs…. BACON. You would normally have the majority of those items on your breakfast plate anyway, right? So why not bring arugula to the party? Arugula is a beautiful green from the Mediterranean with a crisp, peppery bite that immediately elevates any plate it touches. It’s high in fiber, potassium, calcium, and folate as well, earning its spot as both a delicious and beneficial addition to the standard breakfast plate. And did we mention that this arugula has bacon on it?

Whole30 Bacon & Strawberry Breakfast Salad

We’re fruit lovers here at MPOF, and strawberries are a fam favorite. Strawberries are low-calorie, fiber-rich fruits that also pack a much needed punch of vitamins and minerals. And their sweet flavor is a perfect complement to the rest of the ingredients in this dish: peppery arugula, rich avocado, savory eggs, and fatty bacon. A note that strawberries are often pretty high on the Dirty Dozen list, an annual resource for determining which of our conventionally grown produce items typically come to us with the most pesticides on them. Because of the strawberry’s soft flesh, this fruit is particularly susceptible to absorbing the pesticides it’s especially likely to be treated with. Buy organic whenever possible!

We like to enjoy this unique dish with a beautiful garlicky Green Goddess Dressing made with tahini and fresh herbs such as parsley, basil, and dill. Perfectly appropriate for the fresh Mediterranean base of this breakfast salad. And even with all of that added deliciousness, this meal prep idea is still Whole30 approved!
