1. Quinoa Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

A fruit cup is fine, but adding quinoa turns it into an actual meal, not a sad excuse for breakfast that'll leave you starving an hour later. Recipe here.


4. Blueberry Breakfast Salad

That blueberry muffin from the deli case is an easy option, but it'll just lead to a 10 a.m. sugar crash. Enjoy your blueberries with greens, oranges, and a little bit of granola for a breakfast that'll stay with you longer. Recipe here.

5. Baby Kale, Tomato, and Poached Egg Breakfast Salad

Top greens and whatever other vegetables you have in your fridge with a couple of poached eggs, and you'll get 12 grams of protein, plus tons of nutrients and fiber. Recipe here.


10. Sweet Potato Breakfast Salad with Almond Butter Protein Dressing

The power is in the smoothie-like dressing, which is a combination of almond butter, almond milk, dates, and protein powder. Recipe here>

12. Fruit Salad with Walnuts and Avocado

Walnuts and avocado provide healthy fats to help your body absorb the nutrients from the fruit, and (unpictured) yogurt adds filling protein. Recipe here.


15. Avocado Citrus Crunch Salad with Oat Croutons and a Buttermilk Drizzle

"Oat croutons" is really just a salad-y way of saying "granola," but I dig it. Make a big batch of them, then stock enough produce to make this salad all week. Recipe here.

18. Breakfast Grain Salad with Blueberries, Hazelnuts and Lemon

A hearty base of quinoa, millet, and oats is studded with antioxidant-filled blueberries and folate-rich hazelnuts, then tossed in lemon juice and zest for some added brightness. Recipe here.
