I spotted this mason jar of happiness while looking around for paleo breakfast options, so I had to try it right away! I am the type of person that can eat the same breakfast everyday, so I don't post many breakfast options on the blog. However, the more I work with other people, the more I realize most people are not like me and they also don't enjoy eating eggs or oats every morning. This Monkey Salad is a great option to mix up your breakfast routine and it can also be prepped ahead of time if you need something on-the-go. I do want to point out that it is high in carbs with all of the fruit (about 47 grams), so if you want to lower the carbs I'd recommend only using half a banana (making it about 32 grams of carbs). I also recommend having additional protein with this if you are having it for breakfast. If you are a person who puts protein powder in their coffee, then that is a great option to pair with this. I personally ate this as an after workout snack and it was seriously a treat! I have a feeling I'll be making this one a lot this summer.
