    Delivery for breakfast, please?

    Most everyone has had their fair share of cold pizza in the morning. It’s totally a thing.

    Well, now it turns out that could actually be healthier for your daily diet than some morning cereal.

    This is according to Chelsey Amer, a nutritionist who spoke to The Daily Meal about this mind-blowing piece of news.

    “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."

    She basically said that because most cereals are packed with sugar, they’re not the ideal way to start your day. Sugar crash, anyone?

    Amer said, “A slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash.”

    Get this: Pizza also reportedly has more protein than a bowl of cereal which means you won’t be hungry for a longer period of team and will probably snack less.

    But hey, let’s not kid ourselves. Pizza is pizza — cheese, grease and all. So maybe don’t go nuts with the pizza breakfast.

    Amer said that, all things considered, pizza in the morning was just a more balanced option. We’ll take it!
