Wednesday Trivia: A Better Breakfast Equals Less Snacking

You know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But new research shows it’s not enough just to eat something: If you want to stay full all day (and avoid unhealthy snacking), you need to eat foods high in protein—specifically, 35 grams worth of it.

A new study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that young adults who ate eggs and lean beef in the morning had fewer food cravings and snacked less in the evenings than people who skipped breakfast, or had a lower protein breakfast (i.e. a bowl of cereal) with the same number of calories (350).

How to pack such a high protein punch in the morning? Greek yogurt and cottage cheese are both good sources, and so are last night’s leftovers (ground pork anyone?).  Check out our list of healthy breakfast foods for more inspiration.
