Stuck in a Breakfast Rut? Add Some Color!

Stuck in a breakfast rut? If your standard eggs, oatmeal, toast, and other typical morning fare is making you yawn, it's probably time to liven things up. Adding splashes of color to your breakfast awakens the senses and boosts nutrition, too.

Incorporating colorful fruits and vegetables (we're not talking Froot Loops here!) is often an easy, healthy way to make breakfast more interesting to the eyes as well as the tastebuds. It can be as simple as studding a bowl of yogurt with more seasonal fruits like mixed citrus or topping toast with juicy tomatoes or bright green avocado and red pepper flakes.

It might mean looking around your kitchen for a minute and playing with ideas like putting salad on your oatmeal. If you usually drink pink berry smoothies, switch things up and make a green one, and vice versa. Or try a meze-style breakfast that incorporates lots of colors, textures, and flavors.
