Do you like pizza for breakfast? Do you enjoy a nice cold slice of leftover pizza with your cup of hot coffee? If you do but feel bad about choosing pizza over a bowl of cereal as part of your balanced breakfast, a new report says you are making the correct choice. The report, which was put together by The Daily Meal, explains that pizza is filled with protein, carbohydrates, and depending on your choice of toppings, vegetables.
While pizza may not be the healthiest choice for breakfast, it is a better option than a bowl of cereal. The report explains that "America’s cereal options are nutritionally bleak — there’s rarely protein, healthy fats, or anything but spoonfuls of sugar in cereal these days."
They even spoke with a nutritionist, who backed up their claims. Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, CDN pointed out that "an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories." She also explained that because pizza is filled with protein, it will keep you full until lunch.
However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning.
