Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax (breakfast 10.19.10)
Agh it's only Tuesday! As if waking up early wasn't hard enough to begin with, the cold weather makes it so much worse. This morning I had a bowl of cereal along with an apple and a big cup of coffee to warm me up. Today's cereal of choice was a mixture of Kashi Go Lean and Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax. Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax is basically an extension of the original Kashi Go Lean Crunch Cereal. It contains the same sweet, crunchy multi grain clusters, just with sliced almonds and whole flax seeds added for a nutritional kick. As with most Kashi products, this cereal is made with all natural healthy ingredients, and includes Kashi's 7 whole-grain blend. Just one cup of the delicious granola-type cereal contains 9g of protein, 8g of fiber, 15g of whole grains, and 500mg of omega-3 fatty acids! The only downside is that it's a bit high in calories and sugar, so I prefer to mix it with regular Kashi Go Lean to balance it out. I use a 1:1 ratio, one cup of each. Another great thing about this cereal is that it can be eaten on its own, as a snack, or even as a topping for yogurt. To sum it up, Kashi Go Lean Crunch Honey Almond Flax is very tasty and I would definitely recommend it. It's a sweet way to start off your mornings!
