The Simple Healthy Breakfast Switches You Can Make Today

Lisa Patulny

We've all heard the saying: "breakfast is the most important meal of the day". We'd like to add an amendment: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day to get right. What you choose to eat for breakfast is possibly more important than lunch or dinner because it has a much greater knock on effect. Case in point: It's been shown munching on protein and fat in the morning can keep sugar cravings at bay, effectively setting you up for a good 24-hours of eating. Opting for sugary cereal or the like does the opposite. If this is true, why do we continue to rely on nutrition-poor choices (and extra-large coffees) to get us through?

Convenience aside, sometimes a hankering for a particular food just won't be beat. (There's no point sliding a big ol' bowl of kale and eggs under your hungover nose at 7a.m. on a Monday unless there's a toast and butter—or possibly cheeseburger—chaser nearby.) The trick in these situations is to go for a slightly more healthy version of these foods to deliver nutrition to your body while still sating your cravings. Basically you're aiming for "better" not "best". Enter: Us! Ahead you'll find five easy swaps for the popular (but not overly healthy) breakfast options you rely on weekly.
