For starters, avoid pastries, as they’re typically high in fat, sugar, and empty calories.
Cereals are also incredibly high in sugar. Aim for cereals that offer less than 10 grams per serving.
Those egg sandwiches all cooked and ready for you at the corner mart — avoid them. The ones you make at home have far less sodium, preservatives, and fat.
And don’t skimp. “Just coffee” doesn’t do you any good. You’ll be ravenous in just a few hours and grab things you wish you hadn’t to satisfy your hunger quickly.
This all sounds easy, and there are incredibly healthy, wonderful options we could have at our fingertips to kick the day off on the right foot. Yet so often, due to convenience and cost, we continue to load up on unhealthy foods.
“Stick to healthy carbs in your regular diet, and try to avoid those not-so-healthy carbs like donuts, cakes, and pastries on a regular basis,” said Cassey Ho, founder of Blogilates, in a recent blog post. “Even though they are delicious, they aren’t good for our waistline or our health. But of course, enjoy them in moderation because that’s what a balanced diet is all about.”
