|Your Usual Healthy Breakfast: Toast & Jam|
"Because some people don't like traditional breakfast foods, like eggs or cereal, they have something small instead—say, a slice of toast," says Daniela Jakubowicz, M.D., author of The Big Breakfast Diet. But carbs alone won't hold you over all morning.
Better breakfast idea: Jakubowicz advises having typical lunchtime fare and choosing a meal that contains protein as well. So, instead of butter or jelly, top two slices of whole-grain toast with jelly and peanut butter. Another new breakfast idea? Make a "TLT" with turkey, lettuce, and tomato.
