Studies Show Pizza is a Healthier Breakfast Than Cereal
Oh pizza ... we love you. In all your forms, temperatures, sizes. Through thick crust and thin, you are always there for us. Pizza can be eaten for any meal, even breakfast. They wouldn't make breakfast pizza if we weren't supposed to eat pizza before 10 AM. Turns out we should really be embracing the pizza for breakfast thing.
A new study shows, according to Delish -
Amer credits the high sugar content in most cereals for its poor reputation, while The Daily Meal adds the lack of protein and healthy fats are contributing to its "nutritionally bleak" standing. "You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories," Amer told the site. "However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning."
So obviously pizza isn't always the healthier option, Delish details -
A cereal made with whole grains, nuts or seeds, and fruit with organic grass-fed milk or plant-based milk is a better choice over a grease-laden pizza made with processed meat like pepperoni on a white flour crust
So next time you wake up and all you have in your fridge is a leftover piece of cold pizza, don't feel bad eating that slice for breakfast!
