Most pancakes are loaded with highly-processed ingredients that do little to contribute to our health, Rathbun says. And while a single pancake, or two, by itself isn't horrible, the butter, syrup, and whipped cream toppings are what really ruin this breakfast. Plus, most restaurants serve four to six large pancakes per order. That means, depending on the toppings, a single stack can easily cost you more than 1,000 calories.
What to order instead: A bowl of energizing vitamin-B rich oatmeal topped with honey, berries, and granola, Rathbun suggests. The fiber will help keep you full and you'll still get your carb fix, just without the post-brunch carb-coma.
