Healthy breakfast cheat code

Having a flatter stomach involves making smart choices, especially when it comes to breakfast. Here’s a quick rundown of four breakfast options that can set the right tone for your day, courtesy of a quick read from “Eat This, Not That.”

1. Oatmeal

2. Eggs

3. Protein shakes

4. Plain Greek yogurt

Let’s add one more: Avocado toast. A slice of Ezekiel bread with store-bought avocado spread or a DIY version (mashed avocado, olive oil, lemon juice, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for a flavor boost). Want to add more protein? Top it with smoked salmon or a soft/hard-boiled egg.

Now, let’s talk about what to steer clear of when it comes to breakfast.

1. Sugary cereals.

2. Instant oatmeal (often packed with sugar).

3. Starchy carbs (like bagels).

4. Fatty meats (bacon and sausage, which can be high in sodium and preservatives).

If the holiday indulgences derailed your nutrition, a well-chosen breakfast can set a positive tone. It not only minimizes cravings but also paves the way for successful choices throughout the day.
