Cereal or Eggs For Breakfast?

Quote  |  Reply

Hey, I've been trying to eat healthier lately and I've been wondering something

Which is better for you for breakfast: Eggs or Cereal?

Obviously, there are many variations so here's what I usually have


-2 extra large poached eggs

-2 pieces of whole wheat bread

- some vegetables (tomato, mushrooms or whatever I feel like)



-1 bowl raisin bran or bran flake

(by bowl I mean about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of cereal)

-1% milk

I usually either one of those for breakfast but I've been wondering which is really better for you? I mean calorie wise, carbs, fat, etc.

I'd appreciate any input possible, thanks!

they both are. if you eat eggs one morning and cereal the next, why would you have to choose?

I always eat 1 egg + 1 egg white (fried in Pam) on a piece of Orowheat double fiber bread. I feel like it's better than cereal for me because I need the protein to get my brain going, and it tends to keep me filled up for longer.  The eggs & bread are only about 160 calories, 6 grams of fat and 13 grams of protein. If I eat a bowl of cereal, I'm starving an hour later!

if i were you i'd go with the cereals for breakfast. it's always better to have your carbs early in the day than for dinner

I find the most filling combo of foods is some wholegrain and some protein.   Carbohydrate on its own... even something as substantial as porridge... seems to fizzle out about mid-morning.  So eggs and toast or cereals with a few nuts or seeds is more long-lasting
