A Healthier Breakfast on the Go

  • Order a more healthful breakfast sandwich by skipping the cheese and choosing Canadian bacon or ham instead of bacon or sausage.

  • Eat a whole-wheat English muffin or bagel -- spread with plain jelly -- instead of a fat- and sugar-laden doughnut.

  • Note the size of muffins, bagels and biscuits. A jumbo muffin has two or three times the fat grams and calories of a regular-size one.

  • Choose yogurt and fruit for a quick, on-the-run start to your day.
