I don't know how people do it: munching on sugary doughnuts, chocolate-filled croissants, or icing-covered scones. Starting off the day with that much added sugar is sure to make a person feel sluggish and cranky all morning. It's best to fuel yourself in the a.m. with low-sugar foods that are full of fiber and protein. Here are some delicious low-sugar breakfast ideas — all contain fewer than 30 grams of (mostly naturally occurring) sugar, which is perfect if you're trying to lose weight [1].
