Salsa Pick-Me-Up 

Chocked full of tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers, salsa has about 35 calories per half-cup serving. Try something a little spicy to wake you up when you’re dragging in the morning. These three are great ideas:

1. Scoop salsa onto an English muffin topped with avocado and turkey bacon to make a hearty breakfast sandwich.

2. Sunny side up, scrambled, or hardboiled eggs and salsa are a classic combo.

3. Pile salsa on a breakfast burrito or leftover pizza.

4. Stack beans, cheese, veggies, and salsa like in this fast recipe. View Recipe: Quick Breakfast Tostada
