Must-Read: The Best Breakfast Cereals
There’s something about waking up, taking a leisurely stroll into the kitchen, putting on a pot of coffee, getting the eggs out of the fridge, dicing up a bunch of various vegetables and cheeses, throwing them into a pan and slow-cooking them for a half hour or so to create the perfect omelet. Unfortunately, having the time for all of that is now always possible. In this always-on-the-go lifestyle that we get involved in during our 20s and 30s, it seems like there’s never enough time to actually sit down and prepare a long and extravagant breakfast, which means it’s back to the old standard: cereal and milk.
Luckily, that doesn’t have to always be a negative. As the folks over at Men’s Fitness point out, just because you’re eating cereal doesn’t mean you have to suffer while doing so. They did a taste test of eight different cereals and found out which one was the best of the bunch. Their favorite:
Special K Plus Protein
100 calories, 10 g protein, 14 g carbs, 3 g fat, 5 g fiber
Our big winner. We liked the nice big flakes, especially their thick, rich molasses taste. Less appealing, but easy enough to overlook: a somewhat potent smell, and overly processed aftertaste.
OUR EXPERT “Outstanding for its 10 grams of protein, five grams of fi ber, and only trace levels of sugar. Plus, one serving provides hefty doses of all major B vitamins, plus vitamins E and C, as well.”
And if that doesn’t suit you, head on over to the link above and check out the rest. And then stock up for those days when you’re running late or just not in the mood to get a lot of cooking done. Happy eats!
