7. Sweet potato, ghee, and a slice of ham
When we are thinking about the healthiest foods to eat for breakfast, ham is most definitely not the first thing that pops into our heads. However, Christine Traxler, MD, a family medicine doctor in Le Sueur, Minnesota thinks differently. A sweet potato with some ghee and a slice of ham is her favorite pick.
“Sweet potatoes, being complex carbs, offer a healthy food choice,” Dr. Traxler explains. “Ham, is a good source of protein, which helps curb my appetite and stimulates my metabolism. And ghee, despite what you may have heard, is a healthy source of fat calories.” Plus, this unusual choice provides Dr. Traxler with enough calories to get her going without spiking her blood sugar.
