Pizza for Breakfast?

If you love starting your morning with a bowl of Raisin Bran or another healthy-sounding cereal, we have some bad news: The majority of cereals are packed with sugar and really aren’t the best way to kickstart your day.

To drive home the point that crunchy and sweet flakes shouldn’t be your go-to breakfast, prominent nutritionist Chelsey Amer suggests a surprising replacement for your daily dose of cereal: a slice of pizza.

A slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk have a similar number of calories. However, pizza contains a much higher amount of protein and offers the nutrients to satisfy your appetite and fuel your day. The protein and nutrients in pizza come from cheese, which provides several health benefits.

This leads to an inevitable sugar crash and an immediate drop in energy.
