I’ve been known to eat a slice or two of pizza in the morning after a long night of hooking up with the girl in 5C. After all, you don’t really have time to make a complete breakfast when her husband is going to be home in seven minutes.

But according to Fortune, eating a slice of pizza for breakfast might actually be better for you than a bowl of Frosted Flakes or Count Chocula.

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

And obviously, based on the names of the cereals, you have probably already guessed that a slice of pizza has less sugar than many of the breakfast cereals you’ll find on the shelves at your local Piggly Wiggly, and that will likely prevent you from “having a mid-morning sugar crash.”

But if you think that eating a slice or two of pie is better than a bowl of fruit or the complete breakfast they used to talk about in grade school, well, you’re an idiot.
