A slow Sunday, an early Monday, or a random Thursday, whenever it is, breakfast in bed is always a good idea. But why not skip the cereal and toaster pastries? Why not go for something a little more satisfying, something a bit healthier, and of course something that won’t make too much of a mess on the bed sheets:

Oatmeal with Garnishes
Ask any experienced oatmeal eater, the key is in the ingredients. Get out your oats, fill up a bowl, and enhance the experience with any of these ingredients: almonds, raisins, craisins, brown sugar, apple chunks, peach slices, and chocolate chips.

Fruit Parfait
A great way to start the day is with a little parfait. And despite the rhyme, it’s true. It’s a sweet and not terrible for you if you choose the right ingredients morning kick start. And best of all, it’s a snap to prepare. Just grab the following ingredients and layer them into a bowl, cup, or traditional parfait ladle: plain yogurt, fresh fruit (berries, bananas, mangos, etc.) sliced and/or diced, granola, and a touch of honey

Classic Breakfast
Nothing quite beats the classic farmer’s breakfast: eggs, meat, and potatoes. Scrambled, over-easy, sunny-side up, no matter which way you go, don’t forget the coffee. Bacon, sausage, and ham, a little hot sauce or ketchup never hurts. And of course, hash browns, home-fries, or tater-tots, find a way you like it best and perfect it. A good breakfast goes a long way.

Peanut-Butter Waffle
Skip the mess with syrup and spread some peanut butter on your favorite waffle of choice. Get a little fancier about it and add a dash of cinnamon or slices of banana to make this healthier breakfast be a tasty treat to start the day.
