3 Breakfast Foods You Should Totally Skip

By Genevieve Cunningham

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We all know this, and yet we don't always treat it that way. Because it's so important, we should really pay attention to what we put into our mouths first thing in the morning. Unfortunately many breakfast foods are little less than healthy. Delicious as they may be, their nutritional content lacks and their calorie count is through the roof. If you want to start your day off right, take a look at these three foods that you should definitely avoid.


Yes, we all love a good donut. Devouring a bag of donut holes is easy and so tasty. They’re sweet and soft and definitely satisfy the taste buds. But donuts are also incredibly high in calories. Eating even a few donuts in the morning may cause you to use half of your calories for the day. Along with being high in calories, they're also sugar packed. While a donut every once in awhile probably won't hurt too much, it's probably best to skip them as much as possible.

Granola Bars

Granola bars are really deceiving. They're marketed as a health food, but the truth is that most granola bars are not healthy at all. Typical granola bars are packed full of sugar and have far less nutritional content than suggested. If you choose to eat granola bars in the morning, make sure that you read the package. You'll want to find natural and healthy granola instead of the sweet sugary kind that you find in most grocery stores.

Cold Cereal

Not all cereal is bad. There are definitely some good kinds of cereal out there that can boost your health, but it's definitely important to buy the right kind. If your cereal is pre-sweetened, chances are good that it’s not a healthy choice. Skip the marshmallows, frosted cereal, and most things chocolate, and instead opt for something fiber-filled and sugar free.

If you're going to eat breakfast (and you should!), make sure that it's a healthy one. If you don't know where to start, use these foods as a guide for what not to eat. Starting your day off with a healthy breakfast helps to encourage better choices all day long. So choose well and the rest of your diet will follow suit.
