Eating breakfast and a giveaway.

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

It happens every year…. I’m sure I’m not the only one – we over indulge around the Holidays! For me it most definitely starts around Thanksgiving – portion control goes right out the window when there’s creamy mashed potato on the table, along with green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, not to mention desserts! But Thanksgiving is over and I don’t intend to carry on those kind of eating habits for the next month. I need to get back to eating healthier and shedding a few pounds before the next holiday – Christmas!

I hate the word ‘diet’, it always makes me feel like I can’t eat so many things I like. The way I prefer to think of it is just ‘eating better’. And eating better for me starts with a better breakfast. I recently was asked to try Fiber One cereal. I don’t know about you, but some breakfasts just leave me feeling hungry again an hour later! With Fiber one I feel like I’m getting something ‘filling’.

One serving of Fiber One Original cereal provides more than half (57%) of the Daily Value of fiber. It has 0 grams of sugar, 14 grams of fiber, 60 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.

There are quite a few to chose from.. I tried the Caramel Delight recently, I really enjoyed it. The sweet caramel taste and crunchy wheat squares made me feel like was ‘indulging’ in a cereal that wasn’t so good for me. Knowing it WAS good for me made it taste even better:)

So from now til Christmas (and of course in to the New year too I hope), I will strive to eat a better breakfast. I plan on checking out the yummy Fiber one Pancake and muffin mixes too.
