What do you eat for breakfast during the week?  Breakfast is really not my favorite meal, so I struggle almost every day.  I get bored easily too, so even when I do find something I like, I can only go a few days before I want to switch it up.  English muffins with peanut butter, Mint Cliff Bars, and a protein shake are about the 3 things I rotate between.  I am relatively new to liking yogurt, so recently I started adding yogurt and granola into the mix.  So if you have any great quick and easy ideas that are still good for you, let me know!

Bread Salad

Yum
Bread Salad veggies

I actually posted this salad last January as a guest post for the lovely Ann from Cooking Healthy for Me.  But as many of you know, Ann stopped blogging awhile ago.  At Thanksgiving, I realized that my salad recipe went down when she did, so I had to fixed that!  This salad is a staple at our holiday meals, so what better time to share it with you.

I think the proper chef name for this salad in Panzanella, but in my family we call it Bread Salad.  Big chucks of toasty bread, tangy balsamic vinaigrette dressing, sweet tomatoes, crunchy pumpkin seeds…..yum!  Even my picky husband will eat this (if I leave off the tomatoes and cucumbers and add avocado and walnuts).  See it is versatile too :)  You really can put whatever you want in this salad.

So if you are in need of a salad for your holiday menu, you really should consider this one.  It may look ordinary, but the dressing and the crusty bread make it anything but.  But you don’t have to wait for a holiday to make it – I could eat this any day of the week, and be a happy girl!
