6 WORST Foods To Eat In The Morning!

1. Breakfast Cereals

Many people think cereal is a good breakfast choice for children and adults.

But cereals are highly processed and contain mostly refined grains and sugar. 

Nutrients are also artificially added in a process called fortification.

Even the “healthier” cereals are normally loaded with a lot of sugar. 

2. Pancakes and Waffles

Both of these items have flour, eggs, sugar, and milk. Although they have more protein than other breakfast items, pancakes and waffles are very high in refined flour. Many researchers believe that refined grains like wheat flour contribute to insulin resistance and obesity.

Since pancakes and waffles are dressed with syrup, that adds even more sugar along with high fructose corn syrup. 

3. Muffins

Although muffins have a reputation for being healthy, they are pretty much just small cakes. They contain refined flour, vegetable oils, eggs, and sugar. 

Commercially sold muffins are often very large. One review found that a typical packages muffin exceeds the USDA standard portion size by 333%! 😯 

4. Sweetened Non-Fat Yogurt

Many non-fat yogurts contain more sugar than a comparable serving of ice cream!

Fat keeps you full because it takes longer to digest than carbs, and it triggers the release of the fullness hormone cholecystokinin (CCK).

5. Granola Bars

Granola bars may sound like great breakfast options but they actually contain a lot of added sugar.

Some of the popular brands contain a combination of sugar, corn syrup, and honey.

Granola bars have a low protein content which is another confirmation that this is not a good choice for breakfast.

6. Processed, Gluten Free Breakfast Foods

Eating many of the processed gluten free foods now available may cause problems.

For instance, a combination of flours that are made from rice, potatoes, and tapioca replaces wheat flour in gluten free bread and baked goods. 

These flours have a high glycemic index which raises blood sugar rapidly, leads to increased appetite, and weight gain! 

So it’s probably a good idea to limit these items in your diet or better yet, don’t eat them at all!

You’re probably wondering what you SHOULD be eating for breakfast right?! Well I got cha covered! 

Stay tuned for some of the HEALTHIEST food choices to eat in the morning! 😁

Nostalgia For Me!

Have you guys heard of Total Whole Grain Cereal? I remember seeing it as a kid in groceries stores and I do still see it when I go shopping. I’ve never tried it before but it looks like Cornflakes.

Growing up my mom used to buy Cornflakes to be “healthy” but I hated them! So I added sugar so it could taste better!

I love cereal! It’s like nostalgia for me because I used to eat cereal ALL the time when I was a kid and I still enjoy it to this day!

Here are a list of my favorite cereals! (Not in any order):

-Frosted Flakes

-Cap N Crunch

-Honey Bunches of Oats

-Lucky Charms

-Frosted Cheerios

-Fruity Pebbles

Mmmm so yummy!

Do you have any favorite cereals? If so what are they?!
