8. Take-Away Breakfast Sandwich
Sure, it has the makings of a balanced breakfast—with egg, meat, cheese, and toast—but when you really break down that breakfast sandwich or croissant, you’re getting a greasy fried egg, processed ham or bacon, full fat cheese, butter, and a biscuit with a bunch of super fast burning carbohydrates (which means that you’ll be hungry in a few hours) and no fiber whatsoever.
Instead of opting for the drive-thou quick breakfast sandwich, do your health a favour by making your own, healthier version at home. I start with a few slices of dark rye or oat bread, top with a poached egg or a sliced hardboiled egg, top with fresh avocado, tomato slices, and lean deli turkey, no need for butter!
