I love cereal with blueberries

... or raspberries, like I had with my Quaker Corn Bran today! :) Isn't this time of year the best in terms of berry availability? Even though it's unseasonably crappy weather wise, we're still berry delicious in Southern Ontario. The A&P had raspberries on for 3 for $5. the other day (ergo the raspberries in my cereal), but otherwise I like to head to Costco for one of their Jumbo-large packs of blueberries.

Anyone want to share their favourite cereal (with berries or without)? I'm always game for a new cereal. The ones that I've gotten into a breakfast routine with lately are Quaker Corn Bran and Kellogg's Guardian. After I had my eldest dd, I kept on the weight for a bit and my doctor sent me to speak to her nutritionist to evaluate my diet. (Just after that I started Weight Watchers for the first time.) One of the things I remember was that she complimented me on my cereal-for-breakfast eating habits, saying that that was something she usually had to get people to start doing. (I was happy to be doing at least something right in a whole lot of wrong.)

I know it's a good idea to have a little protein for breakfast, too, but for a good, quick breakfast, nothing beats cereal and berries for me as I'm rushing off to work. Another benefit for me is that it helps me get one of my servings of milk- which is one of the areas in my diet that sometimes gets somewhat neglected. So yeah for cereal! :)

Thanks for stopping by! I am an oatmeal person. I love it topped with fresh berries and/or peaches with a touch of brown sugar! Gee, if only all my food choices were that healthy!

I like Fiber One's Banana Nut cereal, but other than that, I'm more of a Cheerios or Rice Krispies kind of gal. :) I love bananas sliced into cereal. Yum! For me, berries go better with yogurt.

I've been on a cereal and berries kick too! This week it's all about Cheerios and raspberries!

Have a great week!

Thanks for the breakfast sharing! :)

I haven't had regular Cheerios for awhile. My children are all about the Honey Nut version. I should give oatmeal another try, too. Makes me think of my dad who used to eat it every morning. (Who can't now having Celiac's, poor guy!)

have a great rest of your day! (after that good breakfast- lol) :)
