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.
