Go with oatmeal on this one
While all these brunch bowls are often pitched as healthy options, the sugar content can be higher than expected. Açai bowls, for example, can be a major sugar bomb. Smoothies and smoothie bowls pack multiple servings of fruit in one dish that’s easy to slurp down quickly, and many restaurants blend frozen fruit juice instead of whole fruit. Sugar from fruit is definitely preferred over white table sugar, but a large dose of fruit-derived sugar in one sitting is still tough on digestion and blood sugar levels, and it may not keep you full for long.
As for yogurt, choosing plain, unsweetened yogurt is always a great choice. However, proceed with caution when it comes to granola: Just ¼ cup of typical granola contains around 6 grams of added sugar (and you KNOW that parfait has more than just a quarter cup of granola).
