Doughnuts, and eggs, and quinoa  bakes, oh my! At breakfast time, it's essential to fuel up with nutrient-packed ingredients to give you energy throughout the day (and may even prevent overeating and help with weight regulation).

Below, we've split these meal ideasinto our sweet and savory options — scroll down to take a look!
