Banana-Walnut Pancakes

Mist a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Spoon batter into skillet to make 2 pancakes and cook for 2 minutes a side, or until golden. Top with 2 tablespoons 2 percent plain Greek yogurt, 2 teaspoons maple syrup, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon.

Mango-Oat Smoothie

In a blender, puree 1 cup water, one 6-ounce container 2 percent plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango chunks, 1/2 cup fresh or frozen sliced strawberries, 1/2 cup chopped kale leaves, and 1/3 cup rolled oats until smooth.

Avocado Eggs Benedict

Mash together 1/3 avocado, juice from 1/2 lemon, and 1/8 teaspoon dried dill. Top 1/2 toasted whole-grain English muffin with avocado mixture, 1 tomato slice, 1 slice warmed Canadian bacon, and 1 poached egg; season with salt and pepper.

Quinoa Breakfast Bowl

Stir together 1/2 cup warm cooked quinoa, 1/2 cup chopped pear, and 2 teaspoons honey or agave nectar. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.

Kale-and-Egg Breakfast Wrap

Mist a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Saute 1/4 cup chopped onion and 1 cup thinly sliced kale leaves for 4 minutes. Beat 1 egg with 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt and pepper and pour over kale; scramble until eggs are set. Spoon egg mixture into center of a warmed 8-inch whole-grain tortilla. Top with 2 sliced cherry tomatoes and 1 tablespoon crumbled goat cheese and fold like a burrito.
