Popular breakfast foods that actually boost your stress response
I love low-glycemic fruits like berries for their fiber and polyphenol benefits, as well as the gut microbiome-supporting properties of whole-milk Greek yogurt (or a dairy-free alternative). However, fruit-flavored yogurt is another hidden source of sugar masquerading as a balanced breakfast.
It’s important to check food labels: 4g of sugar is 1 teaspoon, so be careful not to consume 6 or 8 teaspoons of sugar in a supposedly “healthy” breakfast yogurt. I always recommend starting with plain unsweetened yogurt, adding chopped fruit of your choice, a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.
