As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Braving the Cereal Aisle

Boxes and boxes everywhere, but not a crumb to eat. The cereal aisle is full of everything from the sugar-laden to the cardboard tasting. It is critical to pack your breakfast full of nutrients--make it a consistently healthy meal (and one that you remember to eat!) in order to boost your metabolism and ensure you get AT LEAST one well-rounded meal each day.

Making a healthy choice is easier than you think. Read the label and go with this rule: 5 or fewer grams of sugar and 4 or more grams of fiber. Then read the ingredients list and make sure the first ingredient is a whole grain. 

If you don't have time to check the label out, try some of these that I've personally taste-tested:

Nature's Path Organic Mesa Sunrise
(also comes in an EcoPack)
Barbara's Shredded Spoonfuls Multigrain
Kashi Heart to Heart Toasted Honey

Try it mixed in with
another cereal to boost fiber!
