4 Healthy Sounding Breakfast That Aren’t

Find out what healthy-sounding breakfasts you should skip and learn what to eat instead.

We’ve all been there, me included: standing in line at a fast-food spot or convenience store for a quick breakfast trying to decide what the healthiest meal is to order.

You scan the menu for healthy descriptors—reduced fat, yogurt—and order accordingly. And then, if you’re like me, you log on to the chain’s website later to find out how many calories you actually ate, only to discover that healthy-sounding food was actually a diet-buster.
