I hope you all had a relaxing weekend! I wanted to share what I've been having for breakfast lately. Yes...I have moved on from oatmeal bowls to cereal bowls. I pick a whole grain, high fiber cereal and carefully portion out a serving size. These days I'm liking Kashi's Honey Sunshine cereal. I then top my cereal off with some raisins and almonds -14 almonds to be exact. Lately, I've been on a coconut milk kick. Silk makes an amazing coconut milk. I've only found the sweetened version, which contains 6g of sugar per 8 ounces. I use half a cup. so that's not bad. I also sprinkle in a ton of my favorite cinnamon - Simply Organic Cinnamon. This bowl of cereal will seriously keep me satisfied until lunch time!
Here's how this breakfast shapes up:
Whole grain: cereal
Lean protein: coconut milk
Plant fat: almonds
Also, weighed myself this morning, and I'm down .6 pounds from last week! Yay!!
