    Did you have time for a full breakfast?

    For many workers, breakfast is fast becoming a meal grabbed on the way into work and eaten at a desk. Desk-fast is a growing trend for people who eat the most important meal of the day at work.

    Many people end up eating a little less healthfully because they are looking for something fast and easy. But breakfast on the go doesn’t have to be unhealthy.

    "People tend to stick with what they can grab and go and eat quickly," according to Bentley's Bagel Shop’s Eric Muritz.

    While a cookie or muffin is not the healthiest option, it may not be as bad as you think.

    "Any food is better than no food, especially for breakfast. When you very first wake up, your body hasn't had fuel for quite a few hours. And so that first meal gets your machine, your body started," explained nutrition expert Jeanne Rhodes.

    But to be even healthier, try sticking with:

    • Egg sandwich on whole wheat bread
    • Yogurt and fruit
    • Oatmeal
    • Cereal
    • Low-fat Sausage or bacon
