They say “breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” but does eating just anything count as having "a good breakfast?” According to “Women's Health,” nope! There are actually certain things you should avoid when you're thinking about breakfast. Here's what to steer clear of, no mater how tempting.
Cereal - Sugar is the main reason to skip out on store-bought cereal. A good alternative? Pick a clean option with at least five grams of fiber and less than 10 grams of sugar per serving.
Store-bought breakfast sandwiches - Take your bacon, egg, and cheese from the deli and transform it at home into a veggie omelet with toast.
Green juice - Alone, green juice can lack fiber. Pair your green juice with a slice of toast or a piece of fruit.
Non-fat flavored yogurt - Some yogurts contain the same amount of sugar found in a candy bar. A good alternative? Non-fat yogurt with honey!
Premixed oatmeal - Those premixed ones contain lots of sugar. Your best bet is to steep steal cut oats in milk overnight!
Toast with butter - Buttery foods have trans fats that could put you at risk for heart disease. Instead, consider a veggie omelet with that toast.
Coffee - Coffee is actually fine in the morning, but according to Women's Health, you should always have it alongside some food. Otherwise, you'll be snacking mid-morning.
