I’m a hugggge fan of cereal. It’s quick, effortless, & super filling.

However cereals like Lucky Charms & Fruity Pebbles do absolutely nothing for you besides adding blubber to your ass.

There are some brands that are packed with fiber ( examples: Ezekiel’s cereal, Fiber One, & original Shredded Wheat ) but I prefer to DIM ( do it myself ).

Why wouldn’t I? This mixture takes a total of two minutes & I love knowing exactly what I’m putting in my body. Chemical-filled, sickie cereals just don’t do it for me.

Extra additions: almond milk, rice milk, or Greek yogurt. And a sprinkle of cinnamon/nutmeg/pumpkin pie spice is real mouth party too.

Quick skinny tip: use bowls that are this size when you’re wolfing down any kind of cereal. Think: portion control, portion control, portion control!

Oh, Heyyyy Bee Pollen & Flaxseed

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger and wellness blogger with skinny tips and tricks on how to lose weight.

It’s rare for my day to begin without bee pollen & flaxseed. I sprinkle it in smoothies, cereal, & oatmeal all the time. This morning my breakfast consisted of a few scoops of Ezekiel cereal, pumpkin spice, rice milk, Truvia, blueberries, refrigerated bee pollen, & flaxseed. Even though there are plenty of healthy breakfast options, they aren’t always time efficient. Cold cereal is convenient for when I am running late low on time & famished.

* Quick skinny tip: These Antropologie tiny bowls are amazing when it comes to portion control. There’s no need to pour your AM cereal into a horse trough; plan ahead, buy smaller dishes.

Flaxseed Benefits:

+ High in B Vitamins.

+ Eliminates bloat.

+ Promotes proper function of the intestines [ ew!, but necessary ].

+ Note: it’s better for the flaxseeds to be ground for nutrients, however regular flaxseed taste better – I use both.

Bee Pollen Benefits: 

+ Contains vitamins, minerals, & proteins.

+ All of the essential amino acids are present in bee pollen [ <<<< so important ].

+ Increases energy & builds the immune system.

+ Note: the refrigerated brands are best.

Um…amazing, much?!
