Making Our Own Unique Cereal with Mixit

Couple of years ago we had the opportunity to try Mixit cereal, and have really enjoyed the uniqueness of this service. We are glad the service by this family owned company, and the quality of the ingredients in the product remains to be best, while additions to the options have increased. We like how easy and quick it is to personalize and order the cereal with our preferred combination of ingredients from Mixit. The cereal blends are perfect to enjoy for breakfast with milk, or to prepare a quick and healthy dessert by serving it along yogurt and fresh fruit.

Delight Inside Specially Marked Kellogg’s cereal

Do you remember a time when opening a box of cereal brought the excitement of finding a surprise inside? I have always found it thrilling and adventurous when there are goodies inside the cereal box. It's like going on a treasure hunt at the breakfast table. I remember collecting stickers, and collectible cards as a child, which was very exciting... this was probably one of the reasons I wanted to have cereal as a child for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner :)

Nature's Path Makes A Good Start For The Day

nature's path cereal
Nature's Path has delicious breakfast products that everyone in the family will enjoy. I like that their products are gluten free, organic and non-GMO. Nature's Path products are organic because the ingredients are grown without chemical herbicides and pesticides. The best thing is their products do not have synthetic preservatives or additives.

Eating healthy and making goals with Special K

In the beginning of the New Year, if you are like me then you would have made some resolutions around eating healthy, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight.  
To help us with our journey we can use this free personalized plan from Special K.  When we start our plan we will be automatically entered to win a pair of New Balance shoes.  They will pick 3 people to win every day until March 3rd.  I found their site easy to use and track my progress.
This online program offers personalized meal and fitness plans to reach our goals.  There are lots of information such as recipes, fitness ideas, fashion and beauty, so we can maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. 
I like the Special K quick portion controlled snacks such as cracker chips, granola bars with dark chocolate and fruit crisps, which are fabulous when we are on the go.
Everyone in our home likes the fruit crisps with strawberry flavour and chocolate flavour, here is a more about these snacks that I posted before.
My daughter liked the dark chocolate flavour granola bar more than my son, as I am not a fan of chocolate so I passed.  We really like the cracker chips bar-b-q flavour, which tasted wonderful.  These cracker chips are also available in orginal, cheddar and sour cream & onion.  
The Special K low fat cereal such as the granola, red berries cereal, oats and honey multigrain flakes make a wonderful breakfast.  If you are allergic to nuts and dairy, make sure to read the labels as most Special K products have these.  

Look for specially marked Special K products to win a fabulous New Balance Lightning Dry tank top.  I like wearing this tank top, as it is light and comfortable to do exercise.  
The plan, resources and Special K products are motivating me to stay positive and healthy, I hope it will do the same to you.

Easy treats with Rice Krispies in the microwave

We made delicious treats with Rice Krispies in the microwave using...

1 tbsp butter
125g (1/2 packet) of marshmallows
3 cups of Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal

Put butter and marshmallows in a microwave safe bowl and heat for a minute.  Remove and stir with a wooden spoon, then heat again for 30 seconds.  Stir again and mix the cereal until it is coated with marshmallow.  

Spread the cereal onto a cutting board and cut shapes using cookie cutters.  Decorate with candy and icing/gel. 
This recipe is adapted from the Kellogg's Rice Krispies box.

Healthy living General Mills green banner cereal

Summer is full of goodness, we find ourselves being more active without planning as we run around, go to the park, for bicycle rides and walks.  We also eat healthier as we can find fresh local produce and organic vegetables from our garden.
General Mills under their green banner is promoting healthy living.  This green banner General Mills products honey nut cheerios, regular cheerios and the new oatmeal crisp cereals have oat fibre on top of their whole grains and nutrients.  Here is a variety of ways we can use these delicious cereals.

It is important for us to eat food that has lower cholesterol levels, which will protect us from the risk of heart disease.  Heart disease is the 1 in 3 leading cause of death in Canada.  9 in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease, one of these being high cholesterol.  Eating a healthy balanced diet and having a good lifestyle is important for us to lower the risk.

Whole grain food with fibre has antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that will help lower the risk of heart disease.  3 grams of oat fibre everyday helps reduce 5% of our total cholesterol and 8 % of LDL cholesterol, which is the most important type of cholesterol that we need to reduce.
It is important we choose salmon or light tuna 2 to 3 times a week.  It is better to use olive or canola oil for cooking and dressings.
A small handful of almonds or walnuts daily will be helpful.  It is healthier for us to choose beans, chickpeas and lentils instead of meat.  And importantly 30 to 60 minutes of physical activity daily will benefit us, we don't have to do the exercise all at the same time rather spread it out during the day.
