7 Foods You Should Never Eat For Breakfast
Sure, it's convenient. But the majority of cereals are high in added sugar and low in good-for-you stuff like fiber and protein. As a result, there's a high chance your stomach will start rumbling again mid-morning, making those mediocre doughnuts in the break room look more appealing than ever.
Instead, trade the O's or flakes for overnight oats. They're just as easy, and they'll keep you satisfied all morning. And if you really want cereal? Pick a clean option with at least 5g fiber and less than 10g sugar per serving, and follow these tips to make your bowl more filling.
Wait, but isn't yogurt good for you? Sorry people, not all fermented dairy foods are created equal. Flavored varieties can pack just as much sugar as that Danish or cinnamon roll you thought you were being smart by avoiding. Plus, skipping the fat might actually put you at risk for gaining weight, research suggests. Go for plain low-fat or full-fat yogurt instead—experts agree that both can be part of a healthy diet. And sweeten it yourself with honey, maple syrup, or fruit.
Even if you choose whole wheat, a slice of bread with fake butter is far from an ideal breakfast. For starters, most buttery spreads and margarines contain trans fats, a dangerous, synthetic fat that can raise bad cholesterol, lower good cholesterol, and up your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Plus, there's no protein, fruit, or veggies here. If you love toast with breakfast, have a slice of whole grain toast with a little bit of real butter, and enjoy it as a side to something more substantial, like a vegetable omelet.
In case you haven't heard, coffee is really, really good for you. But a plain cuppa joe isn't a substitute for a meal, folks. The caffeine in coffee might dull your appetite temporarily, but chances are, you'll find yourself scrounging through the snack drawer by mid-morning. Instead of sipping solo, enjoy your coffee with a meal. Not hungry when you wake up? Fine—have your coffee first.
