What I do with dry cereal

Saturday, August 24, 2013

You know when you there isn't enough cereal for a bowl, but to much to throw out? And if you're like me you don't always buy the same kind each week you end up with a lot of boxes with 1/2 a serving in them.
What do I do with it? I dump it on my salad.
Now I'm not using the kiddy kind that is full of sugar and junk, I'm using just mine. The healthy stuff.
I've been eating a lot of salads here lately and I don't add meat to them so my protein has been low. I was trying to find something to increase the protein and I found frosted shredded wheat. (I know it's got sugar in it, but it's still really good for you.) Measured me out a serving, crumbled it up, mixed in the salad. It was good!
Yes it increase the calories and sugar. but when all you're eating is lettuce, tomato, carrots, cucumber and a little dressing ... the calories from the cereal made it a meal.

So that's it, that's my blog for today.
Hope you guys are having an awesome weekend!!

    One of my favorite cereals lately is Fibre One... but with diabetes, they say it has too many carbs, so the dietician gave me a solution for that... add a couple tsp. of bran buds, when the fibre is upped, it reduces the carbs.... (I know it's not PR, or using up leftover cereal, just a healthful cereal tip) and my favorite one is to mix 1/3 cup bran buds with a dish of yogurt, and if you add crushed pineapple, it's like a desert and very healthy....lots of fibre...

    My solution is more dull, since I just combine two kinds of cereal.
