Worried about eating your five-fruits-or-veggies per day? Well, do what I do and start your day with a fruit salad. That will get you well on your way, and it's really an excellent way to perk up a gloomy and dark winter morning.
I use whatever's in season and what's at home, but right now it's usually kiwi, passionfruit and raspberries. (Frozen, but they thaw in minutes.) Blood oranges are great to add, too. And if you're tired in the mornings, you can actually prepare this in the evening, cover it with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for a very quick start the next day.
This isn't all I eat for breakfast by the way. I generally have two open-faced sandwiches, generally with cheese or sometimes ham or turkey, and tea as well.
