Just In Time For National Pizza Day - Pizza For Breakfast??!

I generally try to avoid two food related posts in a row because, it's a new year, we have health related goals to achieve but this one might actual help you reach those goals!

A registered dietitian claims pizza is a healthier option for breakfast than cereal. “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,” explained Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, CDN. Now keep in mind no one in the history of, like, forever has ever stopped at one slice so you would be eating more calories than a bowl of cereal technically speaking but we're getting off topic...

She states that pizza has more protien than most cereals which will keep you energized throughout the day. In addition to this there is far less sugar than cereals which will help you avoid that sugar crash 5 minutes after you sit down at your desk. 

“Whilst it is true pizza can be a well balanced meal containing carbs, protein and essential fats, that is not to say it is a healthier breakfast choice than cereal,” Harley Street nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert explained to The Independent.  “Labeling certain meals can sometimes be unhelpful and what we should really be focusing on is the nutritional content of our food choices, instead of its calorie count. This is because not all calories are equal."

So she did admit that pizza isn’t exactly a health food and sadly can’t really be considered a nutritious option to have regularly.

At the end of the day it comes down to what cereals you're eating, and how well you balance your meals. But still, this is great news! It's 2018 and there's still no flying cars, but now we can have pizza for breakfast! (Once in a while)...
