Breakfast food like bacon, scrambled eggs, french toast, sausage and pancakes is delicious, but it’s really not good for you. Instead start the day off with oatmeal, steel cut or rolled oats that aren’t flavored are good. A fruit and vegetable smoothie without artificial sweeteners are good too and will keep you full until lunch time.
