    Dark chocolate!

    Hooray! Chocolate isn't always so bad for you! Dark chocolate has antioxidants, but it still has sugar so be careful not to splurge. Vanilla wafers have no fiber or nutrients, and they have lots of sugar.

    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Whole wheat french toast (especially with berries!) adds fiber to your diet, keeping you full until lunch. Waffles have little nutrients, no protein, and lots of sugar. Always look for whole wheat breakfast grains, breads, or mixes.

    Eggs!

    Don't let the turkey-title fool you. Sausage links have 11% of your daily fat, and 17% of your daily sodium - with no vitamins. Eggs offer less sodium, less fat, and more vitamins like B-12 and vitamin D.
