…for a very important date. (not that kind of date 😉 )
This morning has been super busy so far, but I managed to fit in an hours worth of studying plus some strength training/yoga. Great, great, G-R-E-A-T way to start the day. 😀
Another great way to start the day (as most of you know) is with breakfast. My favorite meal of the day. 😀
Usually I have a problem with cereal not being filling enough, but lately I’ve been finding that with the right mix-ins, it keeps me full just as long as a bowl of oatmeal would. It’s great for busy, rushing mornings when I need to get moving fast.
- 1.5 c. Barbaras Shredded Oats
- 1 c. milk
- 1 T. crushed flax
- 2 T. walnut peices
- 1/2 banana
Filling, crunchy and tasty.
Tonight I’m going with a group of friends to a presentation on Immunity and Your Health, as related to nutrition. There are going to be a ton of dietitians there, along with some nutrition students (such as us! 😉 ) and it requires that we dress up business-casual (making me realize that I’m going to need a whole new “after college wardrobe” ) Plus dinner is served. What’s not to love? So excited! 😀
Gotta get going! 😀 Happy WEDNESDAY!
Question: Does cereal keep you full in the morning? Any favorite mix-ins?
The presentation sounds fun 😀 Cereal only keeps me full if it’s got fat (nuts/pb) and some protein (nuts/pb) lol
Recognize that! Mix ins are really needed! I love dried fruits (raisins, banana, apple) and nuts!

your bowl looks fantastic! Have fun tonight. can’t wait to hear all about it.
Tonight sounds like a lot of fun – I’m always interested in nutrition and immunity as I did undergrad in immunology. Please share! 😀
happy wednesday girl! i have recently jumped back on the cereal train, because seriously – warmer weather just calls for a lovely bowl of crunchy cold cereal!
ahh cereal does NOT keep me full! i so wish it did tho-ur creation looks so refreshing!
I don’t find cereal particularly filling. I almost always go back for seconds (sometimes thirds). I prefer oatmeal if I want breakfast grains. It’s more filling and I eat it slower (because it’s warm).
I do like eggs best for breakfast.
Your bowl of cereal looks AMAZING as always! =)
your cereal looks great…..i think fruit mixed in helps to keep me full. have a great night-sounds fun 🙂
The presentation sounds great, have fun!
As for cereal, usually it doesn’t fill me up that much but if I load it with a couple different kinds plus banana and yogurt it often does the trick. Even if a bowl DOES manage to fill me up though, it’s just so good that I always want to go back for more 🙂
I’m the same with cereal it just doesn’t hit the spot but nuts and banana defo help x
cereal is my FAVORITE FOOD, hands down.. the problem is that it does NOT fill me up! i could eat a whole box!
The only cereal that really keeps me full is GoLean. I like to add coconut on top!
The most time that a breakfast has EVER kept me full was 3 hours. Usually that’s a green monster. Cereal, oats, pancakes, eggs, yogurt…it all buzzes through so quickly in the morning!! I think my metabolism is a “morning person” 🙂 Maybe I’ll have to try the cereal with mix ins tomorrow. I’ll let you know!
Cereal can keep me full if I eat a piece of fruit or something, typically with some peanut butter. But I also love adding nuts to my bowl! And yes, A.M. yoga is great!
Cereal does nothing for me on its own.
Enjoy your evening! Sounds like a great way to get some good information. 🙂
You know what a new wardrobe means? Shopping!!! 🙂
