Do you ever get bored with your morning cereal? Feel like you’re always eating the same bland breakfast? Here are 10 easy things you can add to your cereal to improve flavor or nutrition.
1. Warm Milk
A variation on the old classic will warm you up first thing in the morning.
This nutritious fruit will add some color to your meal while boosting your immune system and increasing your daily fiber intake.
Add nuts to keep you fuller longer.
4. Banana Chips
Dried bananas add crunch without guilt.
5. Dried Cranberries
Dried fruit is a great source of fiber that can jump-start your day.
6. Yogurt-covered Raisins
Treat yourself: indulge in yogurt-covered raisins, while still getting the fiber you need.
7. Shredded Coconut
Adds a little extra flavor and sweetness.
Eat this, not that: substitute the granola in your yogurt for cereal. Same crunch, fewer calories.
9. Cottage Cheese Parfait
Cottage cheese is low in calories yet very filling. Make a parfait for a bikini-ready breakfast.
10. Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are the new “it food.” These tiny seeds are the superfood of the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas. They are supposed to keep you full for longer amounts of time and are high in omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants and calcium.
