One of the things I am working in my journey to getting healthier is eating more often and that includes breakfast even if that means preparing something before I am fully awake. It has been a challenge to force myself to eat breakfast everyday but I am getting better at it.
One of my major challenges in making sure I get breakfast everyday has been finding something that is easy to prepare yet still good for me. I want something that is going to help me get going in the morning not something loaded with sugar that is just going to make me crash mid morning.
I try to find things with fiber, protein or other good nutrients to help get me going in the morning which is why I love this berry breakfast cereal. It’s packed with lots of wholesome goodness.
I initially tried quinoa on its own but wasn’t a huge fan so that’s why I decided to mix it with oats. I also added flax/chia for extra fiber and omega-3. You can add whatever berries you like. I just love the combination of raspberries and blueberries so that is what I used. My favorite part of this cereal is how the raspberries are crushed and mixed in so you get the tart berry flavor in every bite.
