Mornings just became a little more bearable after a nutritionist named Chelsey Amer stated that eating pizza for breakfast isn't just for the severely hungover, but is actually a healthier option than a bowl of cereal.

Chelsey Amer, MS, RDN, CDN, a nutritionist based in NY, told The Daily Meal that "a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash". "However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning", she clarified, explaining why pizza is probably a better option for breakfast.

"Plus", Amer notes, "a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar than most cold cereals, so you will not experience a quick sugar crash".

Apparently tucking into a cheesy slice of pizza for brekkie could actually be better for you than pouring out a bowl of cereal.

As the news about pizza being a healthier option spread on the Internet, and Netizens lost their calm. A single serving of Cinnamon Toast Crunch contains 130 calories, 3 grams of fat and 9 grams of sugar, according to General Mills, but many folks aren't satisfied with just one bowl.

STARGAZERS across the United Kingdom were treated overnight to a rare event as Britain witnessed a super blue moon rising. For 18 year-old Han Li, a freshman and Philosophy major, this was her first lunar eclipse experience.

The magazine conducted their own experiment to see how much cereal people ate and discovered many are shocked by what constitutes a serving size.

If your Sunday brunch includes a slice of pizza, you're already on the newest health craze.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to what types of pizzas/ cereals you're consuming. You can even go a step further and make it breakfasty by adding some avocado and an egg.

"Most importantly, I think people need to ask themselves, 'Is this breakfast I'm having able to tide me over until lunch?'" Bonci says."If it's not, then there's something missing from that breakfast, and that might mean we're doing some extra nibbling between breakfast and lunch that maybe we should not be doing".

"Cereal can absolutely be a vehicle for getting important nutrients into your diet to start your day off right", she said.
