Breakfast salads are being tipped as one of the new food trends for 2017 as Waitrose reveals a range of foods to keep health resolutions on track.
A trend from across the pond is the breakfast salad. At Waitrose, shoppers can now pick up a breakfast salad pot. According to Waitrose, the salads contain layers of spinach, red rice, quinoa, egg and a dollop of hollandaise - the Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine breakfast salads add a useful source of protein to start your morning.
They also explained that the salads were designed to be easy to eat, with more workers consuming the first meal of the day 'al desko'.
Simona Cohen-Vida, Product Developer at Waitrose discusses the food trend and how she thinks it will catch on in the UK saying, "What healthy eaters consume in the US, British shoppers will usually follow (think green smoothies and coconut water). Both breakfast salads and sorghum might raise a few eyebrows now but there is a demand for dishes with a healthy balance of ingredients. And veg based breakfasts rather than fruit ones are lower in sugar."
