The organic mixed baby greens were from the grocery store, but the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and tomatoes were from the farmer's market. I used olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dressing.

Right after eating, about 8:30, I felt great. It was energizing to know I started my day with such healthy food and I felt full. I even craved water, which gave me a good start on that for the day.
At 9:45, one hour later, I felt hungry. What? That was a big salad! But I had an appointment and couldn't stop for a snack.
At the 2-hour mark, I was, of course, still hungry, but I still had energy. I didn't feel tired or sluggish and my mind was clear and alert.
So while a big salad didn't sustain me for a long time, the healthy energy from it did.
Has anybody else out there ever had salad for breakfast? Are you willing to try it? I certainly would do it again.
