If you live or work in the DTC chances are you’re going to be searching for the best breakfast at some point.  Or perhaps you’ve already discovered that the best breakfast in the DTC is being served at The Original Pancake House.  The idea of the “best breakfast” depends on who you ask.  Some people think a hearty meal of bacon and eggs is the best.  Others may want something sweet like pancakes or pastries.  But if you ask the experts what makes the best healthy breakfast, they’ll tell you to be sure to include some of these items.

Protein.  A good source of lean protein is the most important part of the best breakfast in the DTC or anywhere else.  Eggs or egg whites are a great choice as are low fat dairy products like Greek yogurt or cottage cheese.  You can also opt for a vegetarian source like tofu or peanut butter.

Whole Grains.  The complex carbohydrates in whole grains like oats and barley will give you energy, fiber and fill you up.  If you prefer whole grain cereals, be sure to look for varieties that are low in sugar.

Fruit.  You may want to choose a small glass of unsweetened fruit juice, but whole fruit is a better choice because it contains fiber and is not processed.
