Breakfast for Lunch!
We all know having breakfast for dinner is amazing… but breakfast for lunch isn’t as common. Cobb salad has always given us breakfast vibes when we enjoy it for lunch! It’s not surprising – you’ve got bacon, egg and avocado in one meal! That’s our usual weekday breakfast with a few more ingredients thrown in. It really is like a breakfast placed on top of a bed of lettuce. But hey, we aren’t complaining- it’s a pretty great invention.
A Cobb salad is already a pretty safe low carb lunch option. The only thing to watch out for is some dressings that can be full of sugar. Otherwise, the salad’s full of fat! All that avocado, egg and bacon makes our Cobb salad recipe extremely filling! Since it is packed with so many toppings, it is a really complex salad with lots of flavors loaded into each bite. This isn’t your regular old garden salad! It really is a complete meal in a bowl.
Cobb salad is a great option for taking to work or school with you as your first meal of the day if you’re fasting (Have you heard of intermittent fasting?) or enjoying at home (for breakfast, lunch or dinner)! The salad holds up pretty well for several hours after you make it and you can easily get away without refrigerating it if you need to. We do recommend making the cobb salad the say you are going to eat it though as the avocado will brown quickly.
If you do want to make parts of this salad in advance, you can always hard boil a few eggs and saute up lots of bacon and keep in it your fridge at home. Whenever you want a salad, you will have these ingredients ready to go! It will definitely help cut back on prep time when you make your salad in the morning.
This recipe is actually a part of our 14 Day Keto Meal Plan, but we think it should be a staple in everyone’s keto diet. That’s why we’re sharing it for any to access. It’s simple to throw together and holds up well in a mason jar or lunch box to go. Make sure you layer those tomatoes between the dressing and the rest of the ingredients if you’re making a mason jar salad so the whole salad doesn’t get soggy.
Otherwise, one of our favorite salad containers to go is this HMI Home Products Salad Shaker – it’s large but tall rather than wide, so it fits well in most bags. It also has a dressing container that fits more than a drop of dressing, like most other salad containers.
