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!
