Cereal Box Tip

This Sparked Me!

This is easy! Open the inside bag on your dry cereal ALL the way. This way, you can use a measuring cup to get the right amount of cereal. I found that when I just poured (even into my one cup bowl), it was WAY TOO EASY to get too much. Every 1/4 cup extra adds calories you may not want to eat!

If you are not sure this will help, next time you pour your cereal, measure it AFTER you poured. You might be surprised!

    I used to put the measuring cup inside my bowl and pour the cereal into the measuring cup. Now I put the bowl on my kitchen scale and weigh out the serving. If the cereal has broken down some, the same volume of cereal may actually weigh more.
