Despite being a trending topic for better or worse, the avocado fights for its place on the table. It proves to make a good pair with smoked salmon. Both are fatty, so add capers, tomatoes, and rounds of red onions sliced thinly. Spread goat cheese on the toast. Then finish with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of black pepper.

These bites are for the vegans among you. These protein squares are gluten-free rolled oats, vanilla protein shake, and poppy seeds rolled into one. There should be the tangy zest of the lemon, too.

Even if you’re not vegan, you might have experimented with tofu in the kitchen. There are many ways to cook this soybean product. One is to make a Southwest-inspired scramble out of it. For the scramble itself, you’ll need extra-firm tofu, kale, red onion, and red pepper. For the sauce, scour your pantry for sea salt, garlic powder, cumin powder, chili powder, and turmeric (optional).

Here’s a bowl bursting with fiber and antioxidants. That’s thanks to the berries that you will have to bake for 20 minutes. The wilted effect on blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries contrast well with the crunchy goodness of coconut shreds or coconut shavings. Add the latter after taking the berries out of the oven. Pour milk and enjoy.
