This caught my eye at Gelson’s yesterday, though I suspect it’s been out for quite a while.
I tried it the way I usually eat Fiber One (Original Bran), Kashi Go Lean, or Kashi Good Friends.
1/2 cup cereal
Add 1/4 cup Greek Yogurt (recommend: Fage 0%)
Add 1/4 cup 1% low fat milk
While I was taking the pics, the cereal got quite soggy and lost its crunch; so I learned that it doesn’t hold up to milk that well. I had started off with 1/2 cup of cereal, but felt I needed the extra 1/4 cup, which I tried with milk only. Adding Greek yogurt definitely gives it more creaminess and makes it far more satisfying and filling.
These wheat, rice, and soy flakes are sweet enough that even with the tart Greek yogurt I didn’t need to add any sugar or Splenda. I like the slightly cinnamony taste, the crunch, and the fact that it has 10g of protein per serving, which keeps me satisfied for longer. I would prefer for it to have more than 3g of fiber.

I think I’ll stick with my Fiber One breakfast, but I’ll keep this on hand for when I feel like something different!
What’s your favorite low point, satisfying breakfast? I’d love to hear from you!
