What's in your cereal bowl?
Most mornings I could barely tell you what I poured into mine. No, after getting my son ready to meet the bus, pushing start on my Keurig and sitting down to feed the baby, I just grab whatever is handy and fast. Breakfast is often just another thing to cross off my to-do list.
Usually rather bland and boring, really.
This week I tried the two new cereals from Post, part of the Honey Bunches of Oats family. Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy comes in both Cinnamon Crunch and Chocolatey Almond Crunch. I was hoping this would be an easy way to add a little extra *zing* to my morning routine
I tried a bowl of the Chocolatey Almond Crunch first, I mean, getting to have chocolate for breakfast? As an adult? And it is packed with whole grain, protein and fiber, too? I couldn't wait to sink my spoon into that.
Well, my cereal held up with a nice crunchy texture (from the almond slivers and granola clusters), and there were just enough little chunks of chocolate to be a treat without it being too sweet. It was a winner in my book.
The Cinnamon Crunch was also tasty. A more subtle flavor, it was the first box my husband reached for, and the two of us finished off our boxes in just a few days.
My favorite thing about both new flavors was they were simple and satisfied me through the entire morning. I didn't feel the need to start snacking by 10 am. It is probably all that fiber in there. Each serving packs 2/3 of my daily serving of whole grains.*
Neither could be considered boring or bland. It was a nice change. Did I have more energy? Well, feeling full all morning definately helped me tackle my day.
