|Kellogg's New Products|
This is a great way to start January - every morning after my latte I think about having my piece of toast with peanut butter and jam and then I look at my cereal cupboard and remember I have a lot of cereal. Cereal and banana is a good way to start your day - just a habit the peanut butter on toast. I think though if I had to be stranded on a desert island peanut butter would be one of the things I wouldn't want to be without.
So ..... today I had the Kellogg's Rice Krispies Brown Rice Gluten Free. I first noticed the familiar snap, crackle and pop that never changes. (thankfully) Brings back memories of sitting at my parent's breakfast table before going off to school.
I liked the cereal - it's easy to eat, it's flavor is simple enough that you can add a banana or whatever other kind of fruit you like. It doesn't get soggy. I'm happy with it and a 1 cup serving with 1/2 cup of 1 percent milk is only 120 calories. The box also says there is less than a teaspoon of sugar per serving.
Ok so now I am off to a good start since we are going on a trip to Portugal fairly soon. When I am there I won't want to watch what I'm eating so much. Isn't that part of being on a holiday? Enjoy all there is, right? Believe me there is so much good food and wine, sand and sun, beaches and we are lucky to have family and friends there.
I heard that we should be having 2 snacks each day - almonds are especially good and high in fibre so I have bought the large bag at Costco as the price is more reasonable. I combine them with cashews and raisins and we put some on the table before dinner.
This morning my snack was Kellogg's All-Bran Bars. It was Orange Cranberry with Natural Orange Flavour. They call it a cereal bar. It is very thin and dark - looks like a healthy snack. My first bite - wow!! I liked!!! My mouth was alive with an orange flavor - delicious. I think I inhaled it - was gone very quickly before the water in my kettle had boiled for tea. At 130 calories it is a good choice for a healthy in-between meal snack.
