Nothing Like Fiber in the Morning…

Do you love breakfast?  I won’t lie… I don’t!  I feel it is a necessity that helps me bridge my way to a delectable lunch.  The whole aspect of breakfast foods – eggs, waffles, muffins and donuts – make me want to skip the meal all together.

When I first roll out of bed and stumble into the shower the only thing I’m thinking is “can’t I have just 20 more minutes?”  Once I’ve steamed up the mirrors and put on my face (also known as my Mary Kay billboard) I begin thinking about the gentle aroma of my morning coffee.  No where in my routine do I think about food, which is odd for me since I truly enjoy a good meal.  Once I pour myself into my car, fight the traffic known as Atlanta morning rush hour and plop into my desk chair I begin to notice a rumbling in my belly that can only be caused by neglect – breakfast has finally crossed my mind.  Though I never “crave” breakfast foods, I’ve trained myself to munch on the items of norm during my morning routine at work.  Normally consisting of some kind of fruit and starch, I’ve never found one that just made my day… but perhaps, now I have changed my mind.
You see, BlogSpark sent me this care package that included a little something for you and a little something for me.  I’ll start with my part:  Fiber One 80 Calories Cereal.  I know what you’re thinking, because I did the same, “a decent tasting cereal that is healthy for you AND has only 80 calories… no way.”  I’m here to tell you, YES WAY!  It is so good I seriously forgot it was healthy eating.  The squares each hold the sweet taste of honey while swirling around in you milk, leaving a little sweetness as they go.  Staying ever crunchy to the last bite, I gobbled up my cereal in amazement.  This stuff is good y’all.

Not wanting to be a lone in my trial, I shared a bowl with my hub who also raved about how “this stuff tastes like kids cereal… so good” with his mouth full of health.  We are fans, so much that I’ve started collecting coupons for our next grocery run.

Ok, enough about me, let’s talk about YOU, my wonderful, fantastic, supportive readers… my first giveaway has arrived.  I never thought little ol’ me would have such, but here we are and here is how to enter:

  1. I LOVE fiber one bars, but never have I tried fiber one cereal. I too am not a huge breakfast fan & mainly focus on my coffee. However I do enjoy cereal so I make sure to eat a bowl every morning to help me stay focused during class. Who knows, maybe once I try fiber one cereal I will be a breakfast addict! Thanks steph!

  2. Hello! Yogurt was my hate food anytime but you want to set a good example for the young kids around you. So, I add Fiber One Cereal to it and WOW!WOW!WOW! It is perfect to have a container of cereal in the frig with the yogurt on top as a grab any go to eat on the morning train/bus ride. Once I got a sample of the bar from a friend and keep in it my purse. A week later, I need it and was surprise how nice it held up. Growing up, we ate BIG breakfasts, and light meals/snacks over the day. Big dinners were for holidays and served at 3pm. When I got away from that I gained over 100 pounds. Going back to that style of eating I'm back to a comfortable weight without sugar problems. Breakfast does more than what anyone knows.
