I enjoy fruit salad for breakfast a lot of the time now. I loathe melons, so my fruit salads are usually based around kiwi fruit, banana, strawberries etc. and sprinkled with chia seeds
(This one had apple too. I basically mix any combo of 3 - 4 fruits that I have)
By changing it up a lot and buying small amounts of fruit I wouldn't normally buy (such as cherries as they are not in season here and not cheap per kilo!) it breaks up the monotony without breaking the budget.
Then for other meals I had a lot of different salads with raw and cooked vegetables. For example a variety of lettuces with things like grated carrot, corn kernals, slice cabbage, chilli, beans, avocado, bake pumpkin slices etc.
1 cup water
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
2 Tablespoons seeded mustard
Shake to combine and used as desired
I also always added freshly ground pepper and sometimes other spices like cayenne pepper to make it different.
Then sometimes I would just do a plate of cooked vegetables. As boring as it might sound, variety is the key!
