6. High-fiber, low-sugar cereal
“I’m a busy physician with a six-year-old little boy, so breakfast is very important in our house to keep our energy levels up throughout the morning,” says Dr. Sizemore-Ruiz, and that’s mainly why “sugary cereals, like pancakes and waffles, are typically a no-go in our home,” she adds.
Sugary foods such as most cereals tend to make you feel full for a tiny period of time after consumption. However, not all breakfast cereals are ce-real killers. Some are good citizens because they are high in protein and fiber and low in sugar. Dr. Landsman adds Kashi cereal in his breakfast rotation, enjoying a bowl with unsweetened almond milk and a sprinkling of flax seeds for bonus health benefits.
