Upgrade your morning meal.

If the only thing you pour into your breakfast bowl is cereal or oatmeal, it’s time to get a little more creative. For inspiration, we turned to our favorite food bloggers to see what fuels them up in the morning, and the results were anything but basic. Sure, these bowls take a little more time to whip up than your usual Cheerios, but the pay-off—healthy, filling and, let’s face it, photogenic breakfast combinations—is totally worth it.

Freekeh Bowl

Swap your usual oats for freekeh, a fiber-packed whole grain that’s loaded with nutty, earthy flavor. Stir in a mixture of pistachios, dried cherries, maple syrup, and cinnamon, and top with milk for a sweet, tart and hearty breakfast.

Quinoa Bowl

Not a fan of sweet breakfasts? This bowl’s for you: Tofu puffs (you can find them in Asian markets), seaweed paper, and a miso dressing majorly amp up the savory flavors in this protein-heavy egg and quinoa bowl.

Apple-Cinnamon Chia Bowl

If you love apple pie filling (and really, who doesn’t?), you’ll adore this concoction, which combines apples, dates, nuts, seeds, and spices for a deceptively healthy—and totally grain-free—breakfast.

Blue Morning Smoothie Bowl

Where does this smoothie get its aqua hue? From frozen zucchini and spirulina, a natural algae powder that’s filled with protein and amino acids. Layer on any topping you’d like: Especially tasty (and pretty) are figs, coconut shavings, raspberries, and cacao nibs.

Sweet Polenta Bowl

There’s a reason grits are on so many brunch menus. Creamy cornmeal makes for a rich, comforting breakfast. And if you’re avoiding gluten, it’s a great alternative to oats. Pears, honey, and dried cranberries pair well with the savory base in this bowl.
