Breakfast Breakdown: Choose It and Lose It Fast Food Breakfasts with Rose Reisman

Breakfast is the most important meal of day – it’s important for our blood sugar levels and to maintain focus throughout the day. A good breakfast includes fibre and lean protein, not excess fat,  saturated fat, sodium or sugar. Most of the breakfast items we find at fast food joints are far from nutritious, which doesn’t set us up well for the day! Watch as Rose shows us which breakfast foods to choose and lose when you’re on the go.
