If you’ve never had a breakfast salad, you’re missing out,” says New York City-based recipe developer Julia Gartland. “They’re so simple, nourishing, and have endless possibilities since you can use whatever greens you have on hand.” Plus, salads are also delicious with alternative bases such as chickpeas and quinoa.

FIT CHEF HOW-TO: EASILY SUPREME FRUIT

Supremed citrus is great for a plain snack or added to salads. The simple, three-step technique removes the bitter and tough compounds in the citrus, improves the texture, and gives it an added sweetness.

  1. Slice one-inch off of the top and bottom of the fruit. Set one cut side up and slice lengthwise between the flesh and peel, following the fruit's contour while removing the peel and pith (white parts).

  2. Hold fruit over a bowl and slice lengthwise between each segment and the membrane until you have removed all segments.

  3. Squeeze the juice from the membrane into the bowl then discard.
