Taking pictures of food before digging in hardly makes anyone self-conscious anymore, which makes sense since food photography might actually make eating more enjoyable (that’s according to science!). Yep, all those unicorn toast Instagrams and pink matcha snaps aren’t just snagging you social-media street cred.

The same Instagram effect has done wonders for oatmeal, which was considered no-frills once upon a time.

People aren’t just making Instagrammable avocado pizzas and wow-worthy smoothies; they’re taking to their morning oatmeal like Michelangelo did the Sistine Chapel. And why shouldn’t your morning look just as inspired? Your oatmeal deserves more than a little brown sugar.

See Instagram’s 8 prettiest oatmeal bowls below.

3. Starry Night Bowl

This is actually a bowl of blackberry pie oats, decorated to look like the Vincent van Gogh masterpiece. The oatmeal on its own has no added sugars and claims to taste like blackberry pie—the topping artistry is extra credit.

4. Rosy Ring Bowl

You can make yourself feel happier just by arranging your fruit pieces in a pattern, according to the creator of this bowl, which is vanilla oatmeal topped with nectarines, grapes, fig, hemp hearts, and almond butter.

8. Golden Globe Bowl

Talk about a visual party! A whole banana, frozen raspberries, dragon fruit, pomegranate, and cape gooseberries make this bowl a joy to look at.

There’s a reason why breakfast, big or small, is known as the most important meal of the day
