Consider these healthy-breakfast tips that can help you start your day off right. Reach for whole grains. Have a bowl of oatmeal, or choose a whole-grain cereal with at least 5 grams of fiber per serving and/or those that carry a seal identifying them as an “excellent” or “good” source of whole grains. Keep an eye on sugars too: look for cereals with less than 6 grams of sugars per serving. Add a lean source of protein. Research suggests that, gram for gram, protein may help you feel fuller, for longer, than carbs or fat. Eggs, tofu, peanut butter, fish and lean meats all are good sources of protein. Other good choices include low-fat dairy products, such as milk, yogurt and cottage cheese.
