Pizza is Healthier Than Cereal, Dietician Says

You’ve probably been there before -- after a long night you’re munching on greasy leftover pizza for breakfast -- and you think this is so unhealthy, but so good. Well, it turns out, your a.m. meal of choice might not be as bad for you as you may think...a dietician tells The Daily Meal pizza is healthier for breakfast than cereal!

The dietician, Chelsey Amer, says an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk have about the same amount of calories, but pizza contains more protein and will keep you full and satisfied throughout the morning. To add to pizza’s praises -- those cheesy slices also have more fat and less sugar than most cereals so you won’t experience a sugar crash.
