Breakfast sandwiches

Breakfast on the go doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Sausage is generally high in fat and calories, and so are biscuits. Making this swap for an egg and cheese wrap once a week will save 13,520 calories and 1,040 grams of fat over the course of a year—in theory, that means you’ll keep off four pounds.

Swap this: Sausage, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich on Homestyle Biscuit
530 calories + 34 g fat (18 g saturated fat) + 1,010 mg sodium

For that: Egg & Cheese Breakfast Wrap
270 calories + 14 g fat (4 g saturated fat) + 690 mg sodium
(Or try the egg white, ham and cheese on an English muffin—just 6 grams of fat.)
