Worst Breakfasts for Heart Health

start exploring

1) Bacon, Sausage & Ham

Bacon, sausage, and ham are saturated fat-laden. Saturated fat increases LDL (bad) cholesterol, which increases the risk of blocked arteries and cardiovascular disorders.

2) Pastries

Pastries are a "triple threat mix" of saturated fat, refined sugar, and inflammatory chemicals/food dyes that promote inflammation.

3) Sugary Cereals and Granola

These items are mostly sugar, especially refined sugar. Sugar is more heart-damaging than saturated fat.

4) Flavored Yogurts

Several flavored variations are high in added sugars. This is partly because food manufacturers utilize significant amounts of sugar to enhance the flavor.

5) Pancakes

They're manufactured with processed carbs like white flour, which lack nutrition. Refined carbs raise blood sugar, creating inflammation.

6) Hashbrowns

A diet heavy in salt increases the risk of high blood pressure, which can contribute to chronic diseases such as heart disease.

7) Bottled Teas & Coffee Products

High-fructose corn syrup is routinely added to bottled teas and prepared coffee. High-fructose corn syrup can cause heart disease.
