I shop at a grocery outlet store, the kind of place where you buy as much of whatever product you see because it may not be there the next time. I buy very healthy cereal for about $2 a box. I have a great big plastic storage box at home where I pour the cereal and mix it. Then I fill a standard cereal Tupperware type canister to serve from. I measure my cereal every morning .
Some mornings, it's more "twigs", another more flakes or squares, but it has flavor variety every day. That huge tub holds about six months of cereal and, because it has such a tight seal, it does not get stale.
Like high calorie cereals, but not all the calories?
I love high calorie, but healthy cereals, like granola and Kashi Go Lean Crunch. To cut the calories, but still get my fill, I mix a small portion (1/4 or 1/2 the serving size) with a very low calorie, but high fiber cereal, like Fiber One. Mix in some fruit and you have a delicious breakfast.
Doughnut or healthy cereal? Ask yourself and wait for the answer before choosing. Today, I chose cereal because I really want to see a lower number on the scale this week. Then I waited for that inner voice. When the inner voice agrees, the choice is a lot easier and happier!
