Last Five Salads: Never Have I Ever...

Never have I ever... eaten a salad for breakfast? I have! When I was a kid I ate cereal for breakfast everyday and I effing loved it. If you told me that as an adult I would occasionally eat veggies for breakfast I would have laughed until milk came out of my nose. Well, look who isn't laughing now! HA! Loads of people don't eat a full serving of vegetables until dinner time. Be a rebel and eat a veggie for breakfast once and a while.
