The Best Choices to Start Your Day Off Right
Making the healthiest food choices begins in the aisles of the grocery store. We give you three options based on calorie counts but also include fat and carb grams per serving.
Using 2 percent milk increases the calorie and fat counts of this sweetened oat cereal. Make it a healthier option by choosing skim milk.
This shredded wheat cereal is paired with 1 percent milk for a medium-calorie option that's low in fat. Look for shredded wheat cereal that's unsweetened, then add flavor with cinnamon or a low-calorie sweetener.
This low-calorie, unsweetened option features fat-free milk and has less than 100 calories and 20 grams of carb per serving.
Pork bacon has the most calories and fat compared with turkey bacon or Canadian-style bacon. Make bacon a healthier choice by looking for lower-fat options.
Turkey bacon is a better choice than pork to reduce calories and fat. Be sure to compare sodium amounts, which can contribute to high blood pressure.
Opt for Canadian-style bacon for a low-calorie, low-fat breakfast. Remember this healthier choice when dining out as well.
Choosing a bagel with fruit preserves spends your carb budget without providing a very satisfying or nutritious meal. If you love bagels, look for bagel thins and choose sugar-free fruit preserves.
A bran muffin is a convenient, fiber-rich choice when you're heading out the door. Choose a sugar-free spreadable fruit for a healthier topping than sugary jellies or butter.
