Tips for Eating Breakfast

Updated:Aug 24,2016

Breakfast menus can be loaded with high-saturated fat items (like bacon and sausage) and baked goods that are high in trans  fats. Instead, look for choices that include fresh fruit and whole grains.

  • Start your meal with a glass of fruit juice.
  • Order whole-grain instead of white toast. Instead of butter, spread your toast with low-fat cottage cheese and a little jam.
  • Ask for low-fat cream cheese with your bagel.
  • Look for whole-grain cereals with fat-free milk (but watch out for high-fat granolas).
  • Enjoy fat-free or low-fat yogurt with fruit — either in a bowl or as a smoothie!
  • Hot cereals such as oatmeal, grits, cream of wheat or cream of rice with a little honey can warm you up on a cool morning.
