What To Eat For Breakfast

What is the best thing to eat first thing in the morning?

Although the ingredients are varied, the consensus is that fruit, whole grains and protein is the best combination to keep you satisfied and energized throughout the day.

Eggs with a side of berries, oatmeal with nuts and whole grains with cottage cheese are nutritionally dense breakfast ideas that should appeal to many.

Eating protein in the morning can reduce cravings and hunger throughout the day, according to a 2011 study published in Obesity. “Incorporating a healthy breakfast containing protein-rich foods can be a simple strategy for people to stay satisfied longer, and therefore, be less prone to snacking,” study author Heather Leidy, assistant professor in the department of nutrition and exercise physiology at the University of Missouri, said in a statement at the time.

Starting your day off with a healthy breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day, gives you the energy you need to tackle your tasks and keeps satisfied enough to fight off food cravings.

McDonald’s Figured Out How to Ruin Oatmeal!

Is anyone surprised?

The oatmeal and McDonald’s story broke late last year, when Mickey D’s, in its ongoing effort to tell us that it’s offering “a selection of balanced choices” (and to keep in step with arch-rival Starbucks) began to sell the cereal. Yet in typical McDonald’s fashion, the company is doing everything it can to turn oatmeal into yet another bad choice. (Not only that, they’ve made it more expensive than a double-cheeseburger: $2.38 per serving in New York.) “Cream” (which contains seven ingredients, two of them actual dairy) is automatically added; brown sugar is ostensibly optional, but it’s also added routinely unless a customer specifically requests otherwise. There are also diced apples, dried cranberries and raisins, the least processed of the ingredients (even the oatmeal contains seven ingredients, including “natural flavor”).
