Go savory, not sweet, at breakfast — slash 350 calories

Breakfast items like muffins, pancakes, and granola parfaits can pack a hefty portion of calories and — since they're not always high in protein or fiber — leave you crashing later.

Instead of starting out the day with sugar, many dietitians recommend going savory. Rather than a large blueberry muffin, pair a couple of poached eggs with wheat toast. This substitution will leave you feeling more energized and provide you with what your body needs to stay strong and healthy in the long term, i.e. vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, as well as slow-release carbohydrates, lean protein, and healthy fats.

Conveniently, the egg-and-toast combo also packs about 350 calories less than a muffin. It's a win-win.
