With good-for-you-breakfast choices that taste great and are easy to make, there is simply no excuse to skip the most important meal of the day. Whether you need an egg to start the day off right, or you’re more of a fruit, toast, or pancake person, there’s a recipe here for you.

  • Recipe

    Fried Egg Pitas with Arugula

    The secret to this spin on a fried egg sandwich is the tapenade, a tangy, salty olive and caper spread. Look for it near the jarred olives in the supermarket, or make your own.
  • Recipe

    Gluten-Free Buttermilk Pancakes

    Rather than use a lot of cornstarch and refined rice flour, as many gluten-free recipes do, these pancakes are based on more nutritious, fiber-rich whole-grain brown rice flour and almond meal. The results are incredibly tender, moist, fluffy, and flavorful.
  • Recipe

    Strawberry-Orange-Vanilla Breakfast Smoothie

    Considering that it contains no yogurt or other dairy products, this smoothie is amazingly creamy.
  • Recipe

    Warm Berries and Nectarines with Mascarpone

    Fresh berries become a warm breakfast treat after a quick cook in a hot skillet. For a creamy topping with less fat than mascarpone, substitute low-fat Greek yogurt.
  • Recipe

    Spiced Yogurt Waffles with Toasted-Pecan Maple Syrup

    Yogurt gives waffles a rich texture and a slightly tangy flavor, which is complemented here by warm spices. Whipped egg whites folded into the batter ensure light, tender results.
  • Recipe

    Tomato Toast with Olive Oil

    This simple yet utterly delicious dish, also known as pan con tomate, may well be Spain’s national breakfast (it's also terrific as part of a tapas spread).
  • Recipe

    Good-For-You Blueberry Muffins

    It's often hard to like "good-for-you" foods, but not these muffins. Applesauce keeps them tender and moist with less fat and sugar. Using half whole-wheat flour and half white flour adds antioxidants, fiber, and essential minerals, while maintaining a tender texture.
  • Recipe

    Chai-Spiced Fruit Compote with Yogurt

    Chai, an Indian tea made with a blend of spices including ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper, lends a pleasant, subtle aroma to this sweet compote.

  • Recipe

    Pumpkin Seed, Walnut, and Blueberry Muesli

    Muesli is granola’s healthier and less-time-consuming cousin; you can make a big batch in a couple of minutes and enjoy it for the rest of the week.
