Healthy a.m. On-the-Go Options
We’ve all spoken unkind words out of hunger and made poor decisions while under the influence of our rumbling tummy. The wafting aroma of grease emanating from our favorite fast food joint lures us into a food frenzy and the enticing pictures of melts and pancakes scream, “Pick me! pick me!”
Well, we don’t want the first meal of the day to throw you off course, so we’ve scouted out the best and the worst on-the-go breakfasts for your waistline. Just because you’re ordering “fast food” doesn’t mean it has to be “fat food.” Make smart choices and savor the flavor of these healthy options!
Subway Egg and Cheese: You can’t go wrong with this morning classic that packs less than 400 calories. Choose to eat it on an English muffin or a flatbread to cut the carbs down for a fresher, fitter breakfast!
Panera Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Dried Cherries, Almonds, and Apple Chips: Sop up these new organic oats with all the delicious good-for-you toppings, assured that you’ve made your morning meal a little lighter and brighter.
Jamba Juice Berry Topper: For a healthy boost opt for this blended parfait full of strawberries, blueberries, and bananas! Top it with pumpkin flax granola for the perfect crunch—and for once, we aren’t referring to our abs.
Burger King BK Ultimate Breakfast Platter: Fill up on this breakfast with over 1,300 calories and 2,900mg of sodium and you may never want to eat again. Crunchy hash browns are delicious, but not as a side to pancakes and a biscuit!
Carl’s Jr. Breakfast Burger: If a burger sounds enticing first thing in the morning, don’t opt for this fat trap packed with 42 grams! The only thing “breakfast” about this burger is the egg that is buried amid all the other junk.
Starbucks Zucchini Walnut Muffin: Don’t be fooled by the veggie and nut combo of this quick breakfast. It packs nearly 500 calories and 28 grams of sugar! Get in, grab your latte, and go, before your pre-caffeinated brain makes this bad decision!
