If you are trying to get your health on track for the new year, eating a healthy breakfast is a huge step in the right direction. These two recipes are tasty, healthy and easy to make. In fact, one only takes minutes to assemble.

Both recipes contain fruit, whole grains, low-fat dairy and protein, which is a balanced meal.
