8 Great Breakfasts That Aren’t a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Sandwich

Time to get out of your instant-oatmeal holding pattern.

  • Triple Pomegranate Smoothie. A tart-sweet, one-step smoothie that uses pomegranate in all its forms—juice, arils, and molasses—so there's no way the fruit doesn't sit front and center, in all its glory.
  • Toasted Almond and Coconut Quinoa Porridge. Are you honestly still nuking bowls of gray, lifeless instant oatmeal?
  • Wake-Up Cocoa Quick Bread. Chocolate for breakfast. ‘Nuff said.
  • Nekisia Davis' Olive Oil and Maple Granola. Olive oil, maple, brown sugar, and coarse salt form a rich, shaggy crust on wholesome innards like oats, pecans, and coconut shards. Grab a handful and go.
  • David Eyre's Pancake. Not quite a pancake and not quite a crepe. But lovable all the same.
  • Yogurt with Toasted Quinoa, Dates, and Almonds. Don’t have time to cook quinoa? Just toast it and sprinkle over yogurt. It doesn’t get easier than that.
  • Maple Cinnamon Toast. You may never make cinnamon toast any other way after stirring maple syrup and cinnamon into melted butter, and then brushing it on toast. No more cinna-sugar runoff!
  • Soft Scrambled Eggs. A hacked-up omelet doesn’t count as scrambled eggs. Learn how to turn out creamy ones.

You don’t need a lecture, so we’ll spare you. The most important meal of the day is the first one, and this year, instead of punishing your stomach with nothing but five cups of coffee and a donut, or waiting until you’re literally hungry enough to eat three Chipotle burritos before putting anything into your body, you are going to eat breakfast. And not Fage with out-of-season fruits or struggle oatmeal out of a box, either. We’re talking good breakfasts that hit all the right categories: Delicious, nutritious, filling, and easy-to-make.
