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.

“You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories,” Amer explained in a report by the Chicago Tribune.

“However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning.”
