That Granola You Eat At Breakfast Is Actually Pretty Bad For You

As far as good breakfasts go, I’d say that yogurt parfaits, complete with granola and fresh fruits and berries, is probably at the top of my lists among some less healthy-sounding options. But when I told a trainer a long time ago about my preferred breakfast, he told me to skip and have some eggs instead. Why? Because it was too much sugar.
Now there’s research that shows that some of the biggest granola brands are actually dousing their oats in sugar. Drowning it. Check out some of these statistics we pulled from Elite Daily. They show that most granola brands is the equivalent of eating a piece of chocolate cake–as far as sugar intake goes.

I mean, everyone loves dessert for breakfast, but not if you’re trying to watch your weight.
Sugar is one of the worst things that we can eat as far as health problems go, but if you’re actively trying to eat healthy than it’s not something you should eat for breakfast. Same thing goes for OJ.
But if you’re intent on chowing down on some granola, make sure it’s unsweetened. Alternatively, you could opt in for some other nuts to replace the granola and still give it a bit of crunch.
