6 Breakfast Superfoods (Slideshow)

  • 2 of 3

 

3. Greek Yogurt.

All yogurt is good yogurt, but the Greek style is even better than its American-style counterpart. Why? Well, Greek yogurt contains fewer carbs, sugar and salt — and it often has twice the amount of protein! Opt for a a lower fat version, however, because the full fat Greek yogurts have higher levels of saturated fat.

4. Blueberries.

Though all berries are an excellent breakfast option, blueberries are perhaps the best of the bunch. They’re loaded with fiber, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and water, and are low in calories. Blueberries contain far more anticancer properties than other fruits, and they’ve been shown to slow down the memory impairment and motor coordination that comes with aging. Toss ‘em in your Greek yogurt!

Grains, including oatmeal, should be soaked prior to cooking to rid them of phytic acid. Phytic acid binds valuable minerals and thus does not allow the body to absorb them. This should be doen with all grains and legumes.
