Calories in Your Typical Breakfast

By Jenny Sugar

Breakfast may be known as the most important meal of the day, but it’s also my favorite. I could eat breakfast foods for every single meal, because there’s always something to satisfy my taste buds whether it’s sweet or savory, warm or refreshing. Since I love fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, eggs, and toast so much, I wouldn’t even dream of skipping out on breakfast, but I know many people who do in order to lose weight. If calories are on your mind, check out the list below to see which breakfast choices are lowest.
