Worst Ever American Breakfasts

America, the land of overfed, get this reputation mainly by its breakfasts.
In general, studies prove that breakfast is a good thing in theory. People who eat breakfast have more cognitive focus and have fewer chances to gain weight or be obese by consuming fewer calories over the rest of the day.

The problem relies on the fact that junk food companies discover the potential and start to offer unhealthy and super sweet breakfast options like misguided muffins, salty scrambles and pancake stacks taller and some other food which is even sweeter than my newborn child (and believe me, he IS the sweetest thing on earth).

So not just for nutritional justice, but so you can stay far, far away we call out the 5 worst breakfast in America (that have ruined the claim that “any breakfast is better than no breakfast”). Read it, share with your friends and then start losing weight with the help of the healthy alternative I suggest for each meal.

Cheesecake Factory Bruleéd French Toast

Two slices french toast, powdered sugar topping
2,780 calories, N/A fat (93 g saturated fat), 2,230 mg sodium, N/A carbs (N/A fiber, 120 g sugar), N/A protein

Note to this strange fact- Cheesecake Factory doesn’t reveal the fat count- I guess they lost their count…However, the calories count is so sky high that it should be used as a damn warning sign. This dish contains a full day worth of sugar and a week’s worth saturated fat.

Eat This! Instead:

Avocado Toast– Grilled Artisan Bread Topped with Fresh Avocado, Marinated Tomato, Watercress, Radish and Red Onion. Drizzled with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Lemon.

Bob Evans Country Fried Steak & Farm Fresh Eggs

Country-fried steak, gravy, two fried eggs, and hash browns
1,190 calories, 71 g fat (22 g saturated fat), 3,290 mg sodium, 99 g carbs (11 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 40 g protein

This Bob Evan’s breakfast plate is likely rusted your arteries. With crazy high levels of sodium and fat that is more than a day’s worth. No matter where you place the order or what the chefs serve it with, it’s a bad idea for your body.

Eat This! Instead:
Border Scramble Omelet

Perkins Lemon Blueberry Pie Pancakes Platter

Three blueberry pancakes stuffed with Lemon Meringue Pie filling, topped with powdered sugar and whipped topping, served with two slices bacon and two eggs
920 calories, 41 g fat (14 g saturated fat), 2,090 mg sodium, 114 g carbs (1 g fiber, 50 g sugar), 24 g protein

This breakfast will provide you an all-day sugar dose, not to mention the stomach ache. it is important to say that there is a healthy version of pancakes so it might be a good breakfast option, but this is definitely not the case here. It has more sugar than 94 M&M’s!

Eat This! Instead:

Hearty Harvest– An egg white omelet filled with turkey sausage, sweet red onions, summer squash, zucchini, tender red bell peppers, crimini mushrooms, spinach and Mediterranean Feta. Served with fresh fruit and dry whole wheat toast. No sides.

Panera Pecan Roll

One roll
720 calories, 41 g fat (11 g saturated fat), 480 mg sodium, 77 g carbs (5 g fiber, 34 g sugar), 13 g protein

Despite its healthy and crunchy sound, it is not a good source of protein and high chances that it will stick to your rolls. They definitely did not skimp on the sugar in this recipe. In addition, it actually has more fat and calories than a chain’s bacon, egg, and cheese asiago bagel sandwich.

Eat This! Instead:
Apple Cranberry Stuffing Cups

Taco Bell Breakfast Crunchwrap

Crunchwrap with bacon, cheddar cheese, creamy jalapeno sauce, eggs, and hash browns rolled into a flour tortilla
670 calories, 42 g fat (12 g saturated fat), 1,300 mg sodium, 51 g carbs (4 g fiber, 3 g sugar), 21 g protein

This one is by far the worst breakfast option at Taco Bell including over half a day’s allowance of saturated fat and sodium. Creamy jalapeno on fried potatoes with creamy jalapeno cheese and cheddar- a wonderful way to get a Clogging arteries and an optional heart attack. The best option of a fat, nutrient void sandwich.
