We all hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But when, exactly, is the best time for your breakfast? And just what foods are best to start the day?
The TODAY Show’s nutritionist, Joy Bauer, just filmed a Breakfast 101
type feature that answers all kinds of common breakfast questions. Joy recommends a meal within 90 minutes of waking up – but for those who are slower starters, she reminds us that the most important thing is to have a healthy combination of fiber and protein to power you through the morning hours – and prevent you from over-eating at lunch.
Joy’s personal favorite breakfasts offer just those combinations – either a nonfat Greek yogurt with a banana, an egg-white omelet filled with veggies and lowfat cheese or a homemade protein pancake. Short on time? Van’s Power Grains waffles
definitely fit the bill with 10g protein and 16g whole grains!
