Simple Greek Salad..For Breakfast?

Hey guys 🙂 Today I woke up a bit later than usual after being out later for Canada Day. I wasn’t in the mood for my typical sweet breakfast since it felt more like lunch time! So instead I put together this beautiful salad with what we had in the fridge. It tasted awesome! I love how something so simple can taste so delicious. I thought I’d share the recipe instead of just posting a picture this time…

  • 1/4 cup or 44g rinsed and drained chickpeas
  • 12g or 0.4 ounces of unripened herbed goat cheese (I love the president’s choice brand, for those without a scale I think it’s about 1 large tbsp) crumbled
  • 7 large almonds crushed (about 2 tbsp)
