Start your day on the right foot with this list of great morning foods and drinks.
- Berries: Berries are low in calories and rich in vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants and phytonutrients, which have been shown to protect against heart disease and some cancers. Try adding a cup of fresh or unsweetened frozen strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries to your morning cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt.
- Cold cereal: While cold cereal has been vilified in recent years for its sugar content, there are nutritious options out there. Check the
ingredient lists and nutrition-facts labels and look for cereals that have at least 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams or less of
sugar per serving. Also, choose cereals that are made with whole grains and that have sugar low on the list.

- Cottage cheese: High in protein and calcium, cottage cheese is an excellent choice in the morning. To limit saturated fat, choose 1 or 2 percent milk-fat varieties. If you don’t like the texture, says Blatner, “puree it smooth and it becomes a great spread on toast with sliced apple on top and cinnamon.”
