13 Foods people have for breakfast that have more sugar than a donut

Depending on the kind of office you work in, it might not be a rare occurrence for someone you work with to bring doughnuts into your existence. Maybe it's their birthday, maybe they're the kind of selfless person who'd bring in food for everybody, but you were too busy shovelling donuts into your mouth to really care too much about why someone brought them in. Don't worry. It's cool. You're only human.

Some people in your office, however, will baulk at the idea of eating a doughnut first thing in the morning. "It's loaded with fat and sugar!" they'll say, and they're... not wrong, actually. Your Dunkin Donuts glazed doughnut will set you back around 260 calories, with 12g of that being sugar. But what you might not know is that a doughnut in the morning is not the most sugary thing you can eat. Far from it. Here are just a few foods you eat for breakfast that actually have more sugar than a doughnut.

1. An extra-large coffee from Dunkin Donuts with cream and sugar - 320 calories, 44g sugar

2. A Tall Starbucks Chai Latte with Two-percent milk - 240 calories, 32g sugar

3. Kellogg's Raisin Bran - 190 calories, 18g sugar

4. Silk Vanilla Almond Milk - 80 calories, 13g sugar

5. Noosa Blueberry Yoghurt - 280 calories, 31g sugar

6. Nature Valley Cranberry Almond Protein Granola - 210 calories, 14g sugar

7. Panera Cinnamon Crunch Bagel - 380 calories, 32g sugar

8. Liquiteria Mean Green Acai Bowl - 620 calories, 54g sugar

9. A small Jamba Juice Aloha Pineapple Smoothie - 310 calories, 67g sugar

10. A banana - 105 calories, 14g sugar

11. Panera Blueberry Muffin with fresh blueberries - 460 calories, 40g sugar

12. Tropicana Original Orange Juice - 110 calories, 22g sugar

13. Mott’s 100% Original Apple Juice - 120 calories, 28g sugar

Well there we go, folks! Keep in mind that this is not an endorsement from us for you to go and eat doughnuts every day for breakfast. I repeat: eating a doughnut every day for breakfast is very, very bad for you. But maybe instead of these so-called healthy alternatives, you can be ahead of the game and try some eggs, or oatmeal. All in all, make sure you stay ahead of the curve, folks.
