Spruce up your Cereal

If you are anything like me, you go a million miles a minute during the week.  Between jobs, working out, and running errands, there is hardly any time to prepare a “real” meal.  How do I sometimes get around that?  Sprucing up my, get ready for it, cereal!

You heard that right.  Cereal can be both satisfying and nourishing, as long as you select the right kinds, and include some healthy toppings.  Check out the tips below.

  1. Look for cereals made with whole grain oats and fiber.
  2. Be sure to check the sugar contents included in the cereal; many cereals are just candy in disguise.  Look for low sugar cereals.  Kashi and Quaker Oats have some great ones.
  3. Use low-fat original soy milk instead of the typical dairy milk.  If you must use cow’s milk, use skim milk.
  4. Add some fruit.  This is the best part!  Bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries work well.
