8 Foods to Avoid at All Costs

Breakfast Toaster Pastries

Toaster pastries are one of the absolute worst breakfasts you could choose to start your day. They’re made with white flour and tons of added sugars (and, not surprisingly, the fruit flavors have almost no real fruit). A two-pack of toaster pastries can flood your system with almost ten teaspoons of sugar! That’s a surefire recipe for soaring sky-high blood sugars followed by a mid-morning energy crash. If you’re looking for a convenient, healthy replacement, try a mini whole-wheat pita pocket spread with a thin layer of peanut butter and stuffed with sliced bananas or strawberries.
