It's easy to get stuck in a rut with breakfast, but it's important to start your day right with a burst of flavour and a boost of nutrition.

Avocado on toast
Avocado is a popular breakfast and brunch ingredient, and for good reason! Avocados are an excellent source of monounsaturated fat and vitamin E, it has more soluble fibre than other fruit and provides a range of minerals from iron and potassium to folate.
You could add a poached egg or mexican beans to your avocado toast for even more excitement.
It only takes a moment to make a batch of your own cereal for the week ahead. You can pick the flavours you like and avoid the extra sugar in many pre-packaged versions from the supermarket. The DIY option is also a great way to up your intake of fibre in the form of wheatgerm or bran, slow-release carbs like oats, and/or nutritionally valuable dried fruits, nuts and seeds.
Simply mix oats, syrup and oil with your choice of dried fruits, seeds and anything else you can think of. Then bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 160 degrees.
Baked Banana Porridge
Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Mash up one and a half bananas, then mix it with 100g oats, cinnamon, 150ml milk, 300ml water and a pinch of salt, and pour into a baking dish. Top with the remaining banana halves and scatter over the walnuts. Bake for 20-25 mins until the oats are creamy and have absorbed most of the liquid.
The possibilities are endless. Jumbo oats will add more texture than porridge oats, mix in fruit for freshness and one of your five a day, and soak in whatever liquid you like - apple juice, milk, yoghurt...
All that's left to do in the morning is add a final flourish; scatter a handful of nuts or seeds, a drizzle of honey, or a spoonful of crunchy granola to give your breakfast extra pizzazz.
