Three solid reasons to eat your cereal

By  |  0 Comments

I used to hate breakfast. I’d rather have 2-3 cups, no, mugs of coffee because I believed it helped me far more than actually spooning in breakfast. Ok. Obviously I am wrong. I forced myself to begin eating breakfast – and chose the easiest route. Cereal. Muesli in particular. All I had to do was take some in a bowl, add milk and finish it off. Easy.

So how much attention do you pay to your morning cereal? Whole grains are the best recommendation since they benefit  both your health and your weight-loss efforts!

Here are three reasons why your choice of cereal matters:

1. Fiber. The fiber found in whole-grain cereals has many benefits. It’s important for digestive health, and it lowers your risk of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which can lead to cardiovascular disease.

2. Reduced cancer risk. Whole grains are rich in other compounds linked to reduced cancer risk.

3. It can help your weight. I actually lost a few kilos over a few months. I know because I did not have to alter some of my clothes any more. Whole grains help fill you up with fewer calories. 

Bran flakes, oatmeal and granola are all great whole-grain cereals to try—but check the sugar and salt content first to make sure they’re on the lower side before you buy.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
