Whole grains, creamy ricotta, and a quick homemade jam deliver a treat-yo-self breakfast you can feel good about. Store-bought jams are loaded with sugar; this quick microwave version is a healthier hack that puts you in charge of the sweetness level. Fresh or frozen fruit work equally fine here; place a plate underneath the bowl before microwaving to make cleanup easier.
2 cups mixed fresh or frozen berries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 (1/4-inch-thick) slice peeled fresh ginger

4 (1-oz.) multigrain bread slices, toasted

How to Make It
Stir together berries, sugar, lime juice, and ginger in a medium-size microwave-safe bowl. Place bowl on a microwave-safe plate (to catch splatters). Microwave 5 minutes; stir. Microwave 5 minutes. Let jam cool to room temperature, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove and discard ginger.
Spread 2 tablespoons ricotta on each toasted bread slice. Dollop each slice with 2 tablespoons microwaved fruit jam. Top evenly with peach slices, blackberries, and pecans. Drizzle evenly with honey.
