Pizza Is Actually a More Nutritious Breakfast Than Most Cereals

If you love starting your morning with a bowl of Raisin Bran or another healthy-sounding cereal, here’s some bad news: You’d be better off with a slice of pizza. That’s because the majority of cereals are packed with sugar. A slice of pizza is a better choice because while it contains more fat, it also contains much less sugar than most cereals. For example, one cup of Raisin Bran has 18g of sugar — close to the 25g daily recommended limit — and zero healthy fats. Pizza, on the other hand, has more protein and can satisfy your appetite for longer and prevent snacking between meals. Now before you go ordering a pizza, it’s important to remember that pizza still isn’t particularly healthy, and you shouldn’t reach for it on a regular basis. It’s just a more balanced option. If you want a truly nutritious way to start the day, try Greek yogurt with fruit and you’ll score a calcium and protein boost.
