It has been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is all the more reason to make sure you're eating smartly for it.
For one, you want some protein. Protein-rich breakfasts seem to ward off fatty, sugary snacking later on in the day, according to a recent study. You'll also want some fiber, which helps you stay fuller, longer.
Of course, the usual nutrition rules that you'd consider for lunch and dinner also apply -- take it easy on things like salt, trans fats and sugar. However, the latter may be easier said than done.
