Healthy breakfast: We get a lot of mixed messages about what is a healthy breakfast, and it can be confusing. You should eat healthy food at all meals--your choice! eat fresh real food, not from packages or mixes. Organic food, free of pesticides, is ideal. Eat brightly colored fruits and vegetables, whole grains. Avoid greasy bacon, sausages and sugar (sugared cereals, sweet juices).

Additional options: I agree with dr. Caplin -- and add that some people also like smoothies made with coconut milk, protein powder (pea, rice, etc), ground flax or chia seeds, and frozen berries. It's very satisfying, and can keep you going strong until lunchtime. (yes, the protein powder is an exception to the "no packaged foods" idea, but is easy and nutritious.) or steel-cut oatmeal with berries -- yum!

Healthy breakfast.: With the understanding that breakfast is an important meal in your day, start generally with leaner and more energizing choices. Cereals rich with complex carbohydrates and fiber for sustained energy, with skim or 1% milk to keep it lighter. Low fat yogurt and fresh fruit. Egg whites and whole grain toast. Try to avoid fatty breakfast meats. Keep your proteins lean.
