Can I let you in on a little breakfast secret of mine? Cereal. But not just any boxed cereal mind you. This cereal is my power cereal. It definitely deserves this adjective because it keeps me going strong all morning! Look at that laundry list of phytonutrients, whole-food fats, fiber and deliciousness! I love the textures in this cereal too – it is similar to a granola. I usually top this cereal with raisins, bananas or berries.
This is a great cereal to pack for trips. I portion out this cereal in little ziploc bags and pack it in my suitcase. A hearty, healthy breakfast or snack is with me. So convenient, economical AND I know exactly what I’m eating! Are you ready to power up your breakfast?!!
