It is without a doubt a wonder food.
As many of you know who follow my blogs, I broke my foot in Jan and was diagnosed with EXTREME low vitamin d levels.
I began researching foods that will help increase vitamin d, and found that cereals are almost all highly fortifed with vitamin d.
And more surprisingly, Frosted Flakes are ranked as one of the highest.
Yes, the sugary cereal we all would normally stay away from, is one of the best sources of vitamin d.
Of course vanilla instant oatmeal seems to be the highest.

So, today I was sparking my food and I was noticing how low my iron was, again, and I did some research and realized, DUH!!! CEREAL!!!
I had a bowl of raisin bran crunch and my iron went from like 20 to 122, wow!!!
So, back to cereal.
I was eating alot of it in the past, and I guess its about time to start again.
If it helps increase my fiber, vitamin d and iron...
I got in a good long walk this morning, I was just pushing along, putt putting along.
I dont know if its where I havent walked as much or what, but I had no energy, after 20 minutes I had to sit down and take a little break.
Then I had my second wind and finished an hour. Felt really great, it was 10am and only in the mid 60s.
Fall really is a new time for me. I drove yesterday to the interstate park, now there is a place to walk, its nearly too far to drive to walk it daily, but a couple times a week.
Trails for walking, hiking, biking and running.
Not to mention that this time of year, the park is officially closed so there isnt as much traffic and miles of roads, mostly natural one lane roads to walk on or beside.
This weekend hasnt been too bad.
I hope I see a drop on the scale this week and I am working toward that goal.
Getting my protein and water.
Just doing the best I can to get back into losing mode.
Now its time for some BRONCOS FOOTBALL BABY!!!!
And tonight, sadly the final episode of Breaking Bad, sniff sniff, I hate to see it go!!
But look forward to The Walking Dead in 2 more weeks.
I love it!!!!
Breaks Interstate Park...Ky/Va stateline, where I am going walking this week!!

    I'm a big fan of cereal :) but try to look for the lower sugar ones... well, lower than the really bad ones anyway. Lately I've been eating Kashi Toasted Berry Crisp. It's high in fiber and protein (not sure about the nutrients you're looking for).

    my vitamin d3 was low so I take a supplement, 5,000 units brought mine up to 50 which is a good level. IT is a small little gel capsule, easy to take and not expensive. I also take magnesium oxide phillips caplets for regularity issues. does the trick.
have a great rest of the day!
