Last week I couldn’t get enough eggs and had them for both breakfast and dinner multiple times. Now this week my craving has changed from a savory breakfast to a sweeter breakfast…cereal! It’s amazing how cravings all of a sudden change.
I wrote previously about how I make my perfect cereal. You can’t go wrong with berries, a mix of cereal, and milk. It’s probably my favorite breakfast combo. Berries may also be my favorite fruit, I seem to never get sick of them like I do with bananas or apples. Berries for life! 🙂
This morning’s cereal consisted of three different kinds of cereal. I love to mix my cereal and can’t remember when I actually just had one cereal in my bowl. I love the different tastes and textures. Plus I like to mix a higher fiber cereal with a more “fun” cereal. Too much fiber can make my stomach hurt, so I limit the amount in my breakfast since I also eat high fiber throughout the day.
In the mix:
- Peanut Butter Bumpers (the fun cereal)
- Organic Flax Plus Flakes (fiber…still fun though 😉 )
- Shredded Wheat (more fiber)
- Fresh Organic Strawberries and Blueberries
- Light Soy Milk
First, I put a layer of fruit on the bottom of the bowl. It’s probably roughly a cup. Then I added a layer of cereal. On top of that layer went more fruit and some more cereal. I topped it all off with light soy milk. On the side I had coffee with a splash of the same milk (I prefer half and half, but we’re out!)
Cereal has always been one of my favorite breakfasts, even as a kid. In high school my cereal of choice was Special K with strawberries. I typically don’t buy Special K anymore and try to stick with a more high fiber and nutrient dense cereal. Plus, Special K is getting pricey! I buy the Peanut Butter Bumpers and Flax Plus cereals at a local grocery store called Marcs and both are less than $3.00! At Whole Foods the Bumpers are closer to $5.00…way too much. I tend to only buy Whole Foods 365 brand cereals when I shop because they are inexpensive. The Shredded Wheat was only about $2.00.
Now it’s time to get to work! I work early today and will be outta here by 2:30pm. I love my early days! After work I plan on taking the dogs out for a walk if it’s not storming…the forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms so hopefully we can squeeze some exercise in there!
As for my own workout, I am teaching two classes today so that will be my exercise for the day. I’m teaching Healthy Back and Yoga. Healthy back is a 60-minute class that has a mix of light aerobics, strength training and stretching. The Yoga class is 45-minutes, where I do a mix of flowing poses and more static poses, focusing on holding the pose and breathing.
Have a great day!
