Getting breakfast from a fast food joint? Sounds like a diet disaster! Well these days, you are in luck. There happen to be many options for a quick breakfast run that aren’t half bad and you won’t have to pray over it first! According to Christine Gerbstadt, MD, RD, spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, “It is about finding a good mix of complex carbs like whole grains, protein, and healthy fats to keep you satisfied.”
Many food giants are rolling out healthy breakfast options, that even your doctor can’t deny! Here are just a few:

Dr. Gerbstadt shares that this meal “refuels you and keeps you satisfied so you don’t overdo it the rest of the day. The fiber and protein content is much higher than you’d usually find in a breakfast meal.” On the downside of things, the fat content is a bit higher than one would like (this is because of the eggs). Try to offset this by eating low fat meals throughout the remainder of your day!
