Mango-Yogurt Smoothie

Smoothies are a great way to kick-start your day. For extra convenience, use frozen mango in place of fresh for this quick mango-yogurt smoothie [1].

Miraval Scramble

This vegetable and egg white scramble [2] is supereasy to whip up in the morning before work. It's so satisfying that you won't realize that you're actually eating healthy.

Egg White Frittata

Mediterranean flavors meet in this egg white frittata [3] packed with feta cheese and spinach.

Sweet Grits

Blueberries, almonds, and honey adorn this comforting bowl of sweet grits [4].

Sautéed Mushrooms With Poached Egg

A hearty breakfast (or a reliable, last-minute dinner), sautéed mushrooms with poached egg [5] will keep you warm all Winter long.

Quinoa Granola

Leave it to Gwyneth Paltrow [6] to come up with a gluten-free granola [7] recipe that tastes like the original stuff.

Asian-Inspired Savory Oatmeal

Traditionally, oatmeal is enjoyed with sweeter accompaniments, but Asian-inspired savory oatmeal [8] served with an egg on top is a filling alternative.

Avocado Toast

Creamy avocado on toast [9] with cracked pepper and hot sauce come together to make a seriously tasty breakfast.

Baked Oatmeal

Cranberries, apples, and walnuts adorn this beautiful baked oatmeal [10]. Bake it for a crowd or size it down in a small ramekin for yourself.

Salmon Sausage Patties

Meat eaters, grill these salmon sausage patties [11] and enjoy them solo or between two pieces of toast.

Avocado-Pear Smoothie

If you tend to stick to typical fruit smoothies, try branching out and blend up a creamy avocado-pear smoothie [12].

Breakfast Burrito

These are not your favorite food truck's breakfast burritos [13]! Build your own with whole-wheat tortillas, lots of veggies, and scrambled eggs.

Grits Congee

Essentially a porridge made of corn and seasoned with Asian fixings, grits congee [14] is like no breakfast you've ever had. Lighten things up by adding vegan or chicken sausage to the bowl.

Blueberry-Cornmeal Griddle Cakes

At first glance it seems unlikely that the delicious stack of blueberry-cornmeal griddle cakes [15] pictured would actually be good for you, but they are. The cornmeal texture and the optional addition of chili powder makes them intriguing.

Black Bean Omelet

A black bean omelet [16] is an affordable and satisfying breakfast. It's a great option for healthy weekend eating, and the recipe involves cumin, which makes for an interesting flavor combination.
