"Rate My Breakfast: A Dietitian Weighs In on What We're Eating"

November 15, 2018

 

Nutrition is never one size fits all. Each of us thrives off of something different, and what I recommend for clients depends on that person and their body, goals, and lifestyle.

 

When it comes to the first meal of the day, there are a number of tips that my clients and I follow. 

 

First, try to opt for something that’s easy to digest — a smoothie, green juice, fruit or coconut yogurt parfait.

 

Second, if you find your meal is too carbohydrate heavy for you or you want to make it more filling, consider adding healthy fat, like avocado, or some kind of protein such as nut butter or a clean plant-based protein powder.

 

Recently I was given the chance to rate some Healthline employees’ breakfasts, based on three categories: nutrition value, how processed (or not!) their meal was, and how much energy their choices provided them. Each category was given a rating of one to 10, one being the lowest score and 10 being the highest. The higher the rating, the better.
