Pizza is a healthier breakfast than cereal - According to a Nutritionist

An actual nutritionist said we can have pizza for breakfast and it's like all our childhood dreams have come true at once. She notes that pizza has more protein than a typical bowl of cereal, "so it can satisfy your appetite for longer and prevent snacking between meals".

"You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain almost the same amount of calories", dietitian Chelsey Amer told The Daily Meal. But pizza is better because it has a higher amount of proteins which keeps you feel full until lunch.

"Plus, a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash", Amer said.

While Amer says pizza may not be the worst choice, compared to sugary cereals, Melissa Rifkin, a bariatric dietitian at the Montefiore Medical Center in NY, says it's still not a smart pick. Nutritionist and blogger Chelsey Amer, however, explained that pizza may actually be healthier compared to the cereals that families traditionally eat in the morning.

And without the will (or ability) to go to the shop for a healthy breakfast, we tuck into the remnants of last night's pizza takeaway.

Consumer Reports has conducted an independent research to explore how much amount of cereals is ate by people, in which it found most of the people don't use to stick with only single serving. And those who used an 18-ounce bowl consumed between 43 to 114 percent more than the suggested serving.

If your Sunday brunch includes a slice of pizza, you're already on the newest health craze.

Plus, some pizzas have added sugar like the Pizza Hut's marinara pizza which contains 490 mg of salt and 8 gr. of sugar per serving.

Of course, you can make healthier pizzas with less cheese, whole wheat crust and loads of vegetables.

Most types of cereal contain at least 125 calories, vitamin C, iron and calcium, according to an article released in Live Strong.
