3 Great Cereals I Like









Here are 3 cereal recommendations to really get you going in the morning. 

#1- My favorite is Oatmeal.  Not the quick kind, not the packets, just the regular 5 minute old fashioned oats.  You don't have to get fancy- the store brand tastes just as good as some of the more popular brands.  

Why do I like thee?  1/2 cup of  oatmeal has 4 grams of fiber, 2 grams of which are soluble.  What does that mean?  That's the stuff that's going to help carry out your bad cholesterol.  It also contains 5 grams of protein, which you definitely need in the morning to help keep you feeling satisfied all day long. 

Tips:  add milk or soymilk for extra protein.  You can add raisins, a teaspoon of brown sugar or maple syrup- chopped nuts, cinnamon, flaxseed- go crazy with it!

#2- Puffins.  This is a cereal that the whole family can enjoy.  The kids like the cute little birds on the box.  What I really like is that 3/4 cup provides 5 grams of fiber.  The cereal only has 2 grams of protein, but after you add in your milk or soymilk, you've got your protein.  This cereal only has 5g sugars- really not alot (I like it to be under 7, so 5 is great).  It has it's own sweetness.  Heck, you could even add some berries, bananas, dried fruit and you've got yourself a nice healthy breakfast that everyone can enjoy (without complaints from the kiddos). 

#3- Kashi GoLean.  I really like this because 1 cup has a whopping 13 g protein (this is due to the soy grits)!  After you add your milk, you are swimming in protein!  It also provides a whopping 10 g fiber!  This will keep you feeling full and satisfied for a long time!  The sugar content is only 6g, also a good choice.   Add some fruit to sweeten this up a bit and you are on your way to a healthy day.

Enjoy!

PS- Look out for a great, easy, no excuses salmon recipe I will post tomorrow.  I have to remember to take a picture of the dish this time!!!
