have to say, cereal gets a bad rap sometimes...and
ok, yeah...it is mostly deserved.
be told, most cereal is pretty much junk
food, especially kids cereals which are
basically a nutritional travesty...fill
kids full of sugar and food dyes and send
them off the school to sit still for 8
hours...then take away P.E. and cut recess
time. Great idea! Let's do that!
I digress... :).
yep, I had cereal for dinner tonight...and
I'm going to tell you why it was awesome.
I didn't just have cereal...I had eggs
as well (protein and fats slow down the
digestion of the carbs in the cereal so
you don't get a big sugar crash).
The eggs were 6 WHOLE eggs. I NEVER eat
plain egg whites. The best part of the
egg is the yolk, both in taste and in
nutrition, and you need both parts to
make a complete protein profile. The cholesterol
thing is a total myth. Your body NEEDS
the cholesterol and saturated fats to
make important hormones, like testosterone.
I put in coconut milk (organic from Trader
Joes) instead of cow's milk (lactose and
hormones, no thanks) and instead of soy
milk (which is watery garbage...not a
fan for a variety of reasons).
The cereal was organic and was made with
coconut and chia seeds (good source of
fats and fiber).
The cereal and eggs were almost at the
expiration date... just made it in under
the buzzer. For the win.
6. I made the eggs with Kerrygold butter...it's
an Irish butter made from milk from primarily
grass-fed cows (they say 90% in their
marketing). Costco has giant bulk packs
of it and it's WAY better for you than
margarine...which is only slightly different
in molecular composition than plastic
(not a joke).
I used Himalayan pink sea salt on the
eggs (not table salt, which is just basically
raw chemicals...all the other minerals
are purposefully stripped out and sold
separately so the companies can make more
8. When you put real butter and good salt
on top of fried eggs, it tastes like you're
eating movie theater popcorn...which is
awesome. Terrible for you, but awesome...
I put raisins on top for a bit of sweetness...also
I didn't have any carbs for breakfast
and very few for lunch. I only eat substantial
carbs in my evening meals now and it works
GREAT for me. I have plenty of energy
during the day, no energy crash, and the
carbs at night are very relaxing.
This was my post-workout meal, so my body
was primed to make good use of all the
carbs I was putting in.
I'm lazy and this meant I didn't have
to cook anything (other than the eggs,
but those are easy...I eat half a dozen
every single day for breakfast).
THAT is why cereal for dinner is awesome...when
you do it right...
not all cereals ARE awesome, though, as
I mentioned above. And there are 4
that really stand out in in that department.

be the judge).
