Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can also be the most dangerous. Don't skip it -- learn to survive it. Here's how...
Best Breakfast Bets!
2 Packets of Instant Oatmeal w/Splenda & Cinnamon - 200 calories, 4g of Fat
Fruit Salad - about 60 calories per cup & Fat Free
McDonald's Fruit 'n Yogurt Parfait (5.3 oz.) - 160 Calories & 2g of Fat
Egg White Omelette with Veggies (cooked w/out butter) - 125 - 225 cal. & 0-3g of fat
When it comes to cereal, read labels and measure carefully. Calories can add up quickly!
Hungry Girl Tip: Top your cereal with 8th Continent's new Light Vanilla Soy Milk. It has fewer calories and carbs than skim milk and tastes a lot better.
BEWARE of the Low Carb Breakfast! We really can't stress this enough. Low Carb Breakfasts = High Fat Disasters. For the most part, restaurants serving up "carbed-down" morning meals just pile a bunch of terribly unhealthy things together and pretend it's good for you. Case in point: Carl's Jr.'s Low Carb Breakfast Bowls. These 909 calorie fat-fests contain two eggs, a sausage patty and a slice of cheese -- which is then topped with a sausage, bacon, ham and cheddar cheese omelette. A final layer of bacon and cheddar smothers this 73-gram-of-fat breakfast blunder. Um, GROSS!
We Got the Beat!
Good News! Almost all restaurants are able to substitute egg beaters for regular eggs. Egg dishes made with the faux eggs are not only lower in calories, fat and cholesterol, they're also fluffier than dishes made with the real thing. Ask for fruit instead of those greasy hash browns, and you'll have yourself a tasty, healthy morning meal.
