Cinnamon rolls

If you're searching for a sweet treat to kick-start a day of holiday shopping, keep your distance from Cinnabon at the mall. A classic roll has 730 calories! And a Pecanbon roll has 1,100! With 25 grams of fat, this breakfast wastes almost half of your USDA-allotted daily calories and fat without any nutritional benefit.

Take a healthier route at home by making our French toast; it has fibrous whole-wheat bread and antioxidant-rich blueberries. This dish has one-fifth the calories and fat.
