I used to love to eat cereal for breakfast. In fact, I probably had cereal every day of my life during my school-age years, and on through college as well. I was never a big fan of eggs, pancakes or waffles, but I loved cereal.
Starting a few years ago, however, I got away from eating cereal. It never seemed to keep me full, so I started eating peanut butter on whole wheat toast with a glass of milk and a piece of fruit.
Now I’ve gone back to my childhood years and starting eating cereal again. Not just any cereal; Kashi GoLean is my new favorite. My husband laughs at the description on the front label: “Naturally sweetened fiber twigs”. Believe me – fiber twigs are tasty! One cup of GoLean has only 140 calories, and those calories are packed with 13 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber to keep me full and satisfied longer, with only 1 gram of fat and 6 grams of sugar. An added bonus: the sodium content is only 85mg, a measly 4% of the daily value.
All Kashi products are made from whole grains, which is my first criteria in bread, crackers and of course cereal. I routinely encourage my clients to eat a variety of different foods – and now with another breakfast choice, I can join them!
