Cereal Love

HPIM1698

Good morning! Breakfast today:

  • Kashi Honey Sunshine
  • Special K with chocolate
  • 1/2 banana + raspberries
  • spoonful crunchy almond butter
  • 1% milk

Plus, Green Mountain Sumatra with cream- delicious!

Quick Q&As:

A few of you have asked about adding almond butterย to cereal. I add it because it tastes good, but also because it adds some healthy fat and protein to an otherwise carb-focused breakfast of cereal. I find that adding a little almond butter keeps me full longer and keeps my energy levels more steady through the morning. And, it doesn’t dissolve…I stir it in and have nice little almond butter pieces throughout the bowl.

Some have asked about the herb garden that shows up in some of my photos…It is by Aerogrow and we love it! Right now, we’re growing 2 kinds of basil, parsley, oregano, and cilantro. It shows up in my photos a lot because the light from the herb garden seems to be good photography light.

Off to finish getting ready for work. I hope you have a great Tuesday ahead!

  1. I add nut butters for the same reason- satiety and taste. Makes a HUGE difference for me!

    Have a great Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I also love adding a bit of almond butter to my brekfast. Your herbs look great! I’m only growing basil in a regular pot inside right now as the one in the yard keeps getting eaten by something; it’s so convenient to have the herbs right where you need them!

    Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Your red raspberries color-coordinated with your mug ๐Ÿ˜€ Delicious breakfast, and I love the AB addition. Nut butters make anything better ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hey there Angie!

    I just love cereal, always have, always will. I’d love to gobble up that bowl of goodness you had for breakfast today…yummo!

    I started using AB in the past 4 weeks for the exact same reasons. Used to be afraid of the fat, but have since learned not to be. Healthy fats are our friends ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I got the idea of adding the AB to our cereal from you-love it ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I like your honey sunshine and chocolate K combo. Might try that. Everything works with honey sunshine so far.

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog because now, I know about yours!!

    I also used to be afraid of fat and now I realize that I stay so much more satisfied and that I feel so much better with good fats in my life!

  8. Thanks for answering the question on the almond butter – sounds tasty! I love adding AB or PB to snacks or meals, just for the reasons you mentioned. Isn’t it wonderful how a healthy food can taste so delish?

  9. I love mixing different cereals together and then adding fruit, but I never thought of adding any nut butters. Genius ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Your herb garden looks awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€
    That breakfast looks pretty delish and complete. Yum!
