    Top 10 most Healthy Breakfast alternatives

    1. INSTEAD OF SKIPPING BREAKFAST

    Never skip breakfast- it really is the most important meal of the day. You can also whip up a quick meal of steamed veggies on top of toast or a waffle and be out the door in less than 5 minutes. If even that takes too long to make, just grab a fruit like a banana with peanut butter, grapefruit, or strawberrie.

    2. INSTEAD OF BACON
    Bacon is fattening, greasy, and terrible for your arteries. Stop by the vegetarian protein section in the grocery store and try soy bacon, soy sausage, veggie burgers, and other sources of protein. Surprisingly, some of these even taste like the real thing! 

    3. INSTEAD OF COFFEE
    Coffee is habit-forming and addictive since it contains caffeine. Instead, you can sip on green tea which is heart-smart and has the added benefit of increasing weight loss. 

    4. INSTEAD OF STORE-BOUGHT GRANOLA
    Yes, granola is healthy. But the store-bought box you're eating contains more fat and sugar than you need. Granola is simple to make at home- Mix rolled oats with dried fruit and brown sugar, toast it in the oven for 5 minutes and you've got yourself delicious homemade granola.

    5. INSTEAD OF BUTTER
    Do we have to explain this one? Butter is good in small quantities, but its fatty content really adds up when you use it regularly. Try different plant-based spreads such as Benecol or Smart Balance instead.

    6. INSTEAD OF BREAKFAST BARS
    Don't fall for the trap of buying breakfast bars just cause they're branded as healthy. These are processed and contain diet no-no's such as high fructose corn syrup. You can make better bars at home using granola, dried fruits, nuts, and oats.

    7. INSTEAD OF FLAVORED YOGURT CUPS
    Yogurt is healthy; store-bought flavored yogurt cups are not, containing more than 10 grams of sugar. Make your own yogurt using plain yogurt and fresh fruit or nuts. Greek yogurt is an even healthier alternative.

    8. INSTEAD OF CINNAMON BUNS
    These are hard to give up because cinnamon buns smell irresistible. However, you may find it easier to walk away from once you know that just one fast-food bun can contain as much as 900 calories. You can instead get that cinnamon flavor from baked goods you make yourself- cinnamon swirl bread, breakfast bars, etc.

    9. INSTEAD OF A FROSTED DOUGHNUT
    Deep fried and dripping with glaze, frosted doughnuts are not a nutritious option. You can instead make your own whole-wheat doughnut with fresh fruit. Our favorite is a banana bread doughnut with chocolate chips- yum!

    10. INSTEAD OF A TOASTER PASTRY
    Toaster pastries, while admittedly delicious, contain too many processed ingredients and additives to be healthy. A healthier alternative is an English muffin with sweet toppings such as banana, chocolate chips, and peanut butter.
