We hear it all the time: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But, that doesn’t mean you can eat just anything. Here are some common breakfast foods to avoid throwing in your bag on your way to work.

 

Sugary Cereals

Often times, sweetened breakfast cereals look appealing because of their added vitamins. They’re actually very low in fiber and people tend to eat more than the serving size on the label.

 

Packaged Smoothies

Premade smoothies are loaded with sugar due to the sweeteners often included in them. Instead, try a homemade smoothie with fruit and healthy protein such as yogurt. Throw in some veggies for some extra nutrients.

As convenient as these may be, they’re definitely not a healthy option. Packaged breakfast sandwiches are high in fat and low in fiber, which leads to fatigue and can cause decreasing concentration throughout the day.
