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.
