Building a Good Breakfast

Building a Good Breakfast

A great breakfast has several components, and normally equals about 300 calories. Try to make sure your breakfast each morning has these 3 components:

  • Complex Carbohydrates – such as whole grain bread, cereals with fiber, oatmeal, etc
  • Lean Protein – such as yogurt, cheese, milk, ham, etc
  • Fruit – Whole fruit is better than juice. Getting a serving of fruit in at breakfast gets you a serving ahead at the beginning of the day. If you want some juice, get 100% fruit juice (watch out for juice beverages that are “made from concentrate” or “contain juice”).
