The #1 Food You Should Eat for Breakfast

Find out what food to add to your morning routine to power you through the day.

What did you have for breakfast this morning? At 7:30, I had a cup of cereal with skim milk. Sounds pretty healthy. In the scheme of things I could have done a lot worse, except by the time I got into work at 9:30, I was starving.

Then came what I call my “second breakfast,” when I’m suddenly stuffing my face full of whatever I can get my hands on to curb my hunger. Since it’s a new year, and I’d like to get things off to a good start, I think it’s time for a new breakfast.

But what to eat? Oatmeal is as close to perfect as you can get for a breakfast food. Download a Free Quick Breakfast Cookbook!
