As a chocolate lover & serious sweet tooth, I almost always prefer something sweet vs. savory for breakfast. French toast with fresh berries, chocolate chip pancakes… bring it!!
As I was reading my issue of Fitness magazine this month, this question caught my eye…
“Is it unhealthy to eat chocolate at breakfast?”
I was happy to read that new research shows having a treat in the morning can help you from going overboard on sweets later in the day. The trick? Limit yourself to a few chocolate chips in your yogurt or pancake batter.
Don’t go crazy with a chocolate donut or chocolate croissant every morning!
Looking for an on-the-go chocolate breakfast option?
My personal favorite are Luna Bars in Chocolate Peppermint Stick. I must not be alone in this, because it is almost impossible to find this flavor in stock anywhere anymore! These are a good option with 8 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber in every bar. These also have less sodium per serving than than calories.
My golden rule for choosing snack bars (and other packaged foods as well)? Shop for items where the amount of sodium (in milligrams) per serving does not exceed the number of calories in the serving.
