Salads for breakfast? Snappy Salads CEO thinks it's about time
Over the past two decades, salads have gone from a side item to having full entree status at lunch and dinner, but breakfast has been one daypart that lettuce hasn't won over.
Dallas-based Snappy Salads has introduced its first breakfast menu, according to a press release, featuring plant-based foods blended with proteins and carbohydrates including a Sunrise Salad with citrus and grains, Warm Riced Cauliflower with Fried Egg and Smashed Avocado Toast.
"Making your first meal of the day a salad might sound a little strange, but it's actually a no-brainer," CEO Chris Dahlander said in the release. "Leafy greens topped with brain foods that are nutrient-rich can fuel your body and start your day on the right note. As for flavor, a salad has endless ingredient combinations."
The brand is passionate about making good nutrition accessible to anyone, said Dahlander.
"We are breaking the American myth about your breakfast options and re-introducing important plant-based meals," he said. "Society used to eat this way, but we lost track of that with the emergence of highly industrialized grain- and sugar-based breakfast foods.
My goal is to improve the quality of food Americans are eating by serving highly nutritious, high-quality meals to our guests by bringing back what we know our bodies have been craving."
Snappy Salads opened its first location 11 years ago and has15 locations throughout Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston and Austin.
