The Top 10 Healthiest Foods for Breakfast Ever


All hail, avocado toast! These green goddesses have it all—omega-3s, protein, fiber (half an avocado contains a quarter of your recommended value for the day), vitamin E, and more potassium than you’ll find in a banana, says White. Those nutrients come with a big payoff: New research published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology found that eating one to one and a half avocados per day (in place of other foods high in saturated fat) significantly reduced levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.

Sprouted-Grain Bread

This is the perfect bread to feed your avocado-toast habit, says Gomer. Baked goods made from sprouted grains—meaning they have been allowed to germinate—actually have a lower impact on blood sugar levels compared to other whole-grain bread with the same amount of carbs, according to research published in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism. Plus, researchers found they triggered a greater post-toast increase in GLP-1, a powerful satiety hormone that’s linked to maintaining a healthy weight.
