The most important meal of the day is breakfast. We’ve all heard the saying, and for a good reason. After sleeping for 10 hours without eating, breakfast gives us a chance to refuel our bodies.
Smart choices about what we eat in the morning can give us more energy, help us focus, and make us more productive so that we can take on the world.
On the other hand, if we choose the wrong things for breakfast, we might get a quick boost, but by lunchtime, we’ll feel tired and sluggish. We might even be tempted to eat badly again later in the day to make up for it.
Here is a list of the 15 worst things you’re probably eating for breakfast daily. Some of these will surprise you, especially number 15!
1. Sugary, over-processed cereals
We all know that cereals for kids that come in bright boxes should be avoided because they have so much sugar in them that it’s scary. But breakfast cereals that are marketed as “healthy” but have a lot of sugar in them are even more dangerous.
We really like cereal for breakfast. Cereal is a quick, easy, healthy, and nourishing way to fill up in the morning and get ready to start the day. But only if they are made with whole grains and don’t have any added sugars.
Sugar is usually added to popular cereals like puffed rice, honey-coated nut cereals, and frosted flakes, whether they are from a well-known brand or the store’s own brand.
Aside from the long-term health effects of eating too much sugar, starting your day with something sweet will only keep you going for a short time. But once we’ve digested this sugary hit, we’ll feel hungry again very quickly and may reach for another unhealthy food. Please make sure you look at the cereal’s nutrition facts and make sure it doesn’t have any added sugars. Choose cereals made with whole grains and a lot of fiber, filling you up and keeping you full until lunch. Choose shredded whole wheat cereals, corn flakes not covered in sugar, and traditional porridge oats. However, it
would be best to avoid microwavable porridge, which often has sugary syrups hidden inside to make it taste better.
