From Plain Old Cereal to Super Cereal!

Eating better doesn’t have to be about restriction, deprivation, or a massive overhaul of what you are currently eating.  In fact, we know for the most part that simply doesn’t work long term.  Small changes to what you are eating to boost the nutrient-density and make your food more satisfying is what it is all about.

A bowl of cereal is a perfect example.  You could have this “plain old cereal”…

or you could have this “Super Cereal!”

By just taking an extra minute or two I added a serving of fruit which adds fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and antioxidants (disease fighting power houses) and a small handful of walnuts which gives me healthy fats, more fiber, some protein, and another dose of those disease fighting antioxidants.  Plus the second bowl of cereal left me more satisfied and will last longer.

It really is that simple.  Not about a diet and the opposite of restriction.  What can you add to your breakfast routine to go from blah to brilliant?
