Stretch Your Favorite Cereal


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I love some cereals, which are healthy but high in calories. So, I have half the serving (usually 1/2 cup) and then for filler I have a serving of fiber one or puffed wheat.

    I have done this for years with my kids. 2 boxes plain cheerios plus one box honey nut---same taste less sugar.

    This also works for snacking on Trail Mix, which is high in calories. I cut calories and pump up satiety by mixing in Trader Joe's Fiber twigs-like cereal. I sip non-fat milk as I snack, giving me a go-to meal I never tire of!

    I learned this trick from a yoga retreat with my teacher. He would have me have breakfast with his family and he'd mix some of the kids sugary cereal with kashi . I have to say the though of mixing cereals shocked me, like when I was a kid and foods touched on my plate. Now that I'm lower on sugars it gives me a treat but gives me some good nutrition too
