Pizza is Better than Cereal for Breakfast

Since today is National Deep-Dish Pizza day, we thought we’d share this with you:

The Daily Meal and the Chicago Tribune claim pizza is better than a bowl of cereal for breakfast.

Dietitian Chelsey Amer is quoted by both the paper and the site as saying; “You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories. However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning. Plus, a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash.”
