Eat This for Breakfast

What to Eat

A healthy breakfast should contain at least 5 grams of fiber, one serving of calcium (equal to a cup of milk or yogurt), and some protein and fat. Also, limit added sugars to about 6 grams (1 teaspoon equals 4 grams). The following meal suggestions fit the bill.

If you're on the run:

Order a latte with skim milk and grab a Gnu Foods Flavor & Fiber Bar (available at gnufoods.com).

If you have a few minutes:

Pour a bowl of cereal such as Kashi GoLean, Post Original Shredded Wheat 'n Bran, or Barbara's Bakery Original Puffins with skim milk. Toss in some thawed frozen berries.

If you're at your desk:

Bring a Polly-O cheese stick and eat with a serving of whole-grain crackers and a glass of tomato juice.

If you like to prepare the night before:

Put your favorite fruits and low-fat yogurt in a blender and stash in the fridge. In the morning, simply blend and pour into a to-go cup.

Not Hungry in the Morning?

Stop eating after 8 o'clock at night—within two to three weeks your body's appetite clock will reset and you'll wake up hungry, suggests Zuckerbrot.
