It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not get your day started off on the right foot with a healthy breakfast.
My usual go-to breakfast usually includes eggs. But when we’re in a hurry I break out the bowls and spoons.
Cereal is a quick breakfast – perfect for those busy morning. But, while it’s tempting to fill your bowl with sugary-goodness, it’s just not that great for you. Instead, eat a hearty bowl of oatmeal or homemade granola that’s filled with nuts and things that will keep you full longer. A healthy breakfast cereal is much better for you than those boxed sugary kinds.
That’s a great start to the day!
Great healthy breakfast cereal choices
While you might think of a bowl and spoon as necessary accessories for your morning cereal, you don’t really need them. That healthy breakfast cereal can be made into cookies and bars too (gotta love a versatile granola recipe!).
In the list below you’ll find great choices to fill your bowl but also a few that you can grab and take with you. I figure if it has oatmeal it still counts as cereal!
