Pizza Is Actually Healthier For Breakfast Than Most Cereals, Nutritionist Says


The show Time/source UNILAD


Good news for those of us who simply can’t resist a bit of leftover pizza the morning after a heavy night on the town.


A nutritionist has revealed that pizza actually makes for a healthier breakfast than the majority of cereals many of us would happily chow down every single morning without a

second thought.However, this of course doesn’t mean that you are now advised to get your daily slice in alongside your five-a-day. Indeed, this is really more reflective of how unhealthy many cereals are rather than

how nutritious pizza is. But still, vindication at last for my bad hangover choices, food-wise at least.


Simon Jurkiw, Performance Nutritionist at sports and active nutrition brand bulk, told UNILAD:


The good thing about pizza, in comparison to many breakfast cereals you find on the market, is that it does contain a balanced amount of protein, fats and carbs. A bowl of breakfast cereal meanwhile, is likely to contain a high amount of sugar.As an example, a typical pizza would be less than 5g sugar per 100g whereas some cereals can be as high as 40g sugar per 100g. Pizza would be higher in saturated compare to break cereal non the less. one , the perception is that breakfast cereal = good, and pizza = bad.
