1. Avoid Highly-Processed Cereals
Back away from childhood favorites, you know the box with the tiger on it. Processed cereals such as Corn Flakes and any type of puffed cereals are quick but are also made from highly-refined grains and low in fiber. If your breakfast fix is a processed cereal, you may notice that you’re hungry an hour later. Why? These cereals are digested very quickly, causing your blood sugar and insulin levels to spike and dip, leaving you hungry an hour or two later. So, try to cut down on those sugary cereals.
2. Pick Cereals with Whole Grains and Fiber
This will require just a little effort. OK? Companies have gotten very cleaver with their marketing tactics. You can’t just rely on claims printed on the front of the box. To be sure you’re buying a whole-grain cereal, read the ingredient list on the box. The first ingredient should be whole wheat or whole oats –because whole grains are high in fiber which slows the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream. This helps keep your blood sugar levels steady and your hunger under control. So next time you’re in the grocery store look for a whole grain cereal.
3. Do It Yourself: Make Your Own Cereal
Old fashioned oats, while it does take a little longer to prepare, these oats are minimally-processed grains with the lowest glycemic index of cereals. To save time in the morning, I prep the night before. Sometimes, oatmeal can be a little bland, I like to add fresh berries, and raw almond butter with a touch of cinnamon. This a simple and inexpensive breakfast option.
Start your morning off on the right foot by having a healthy breakfast. And remember, small changes turn into Big changes!
