Low Carb Breakfast Cereals
For so many of us the 'go to' breakfast does seem to be cereal. But the highly coloured packaged varieties you see on supermarket shelves do contain a high amount of carbs and sugar, so you may wish to consider a lower carb version. Here are three for you to have a look at, see what you think ...
Granola The Low Carb Way : Fennel and Ginger Grain Free Granola
Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' asks, " Have you ditched the cereals yet? With sugary cereals these days being more akin to a dessert (in fact there is now a company that has set up a cereal bar and cafe) it really is time to give up these for good.
So what do you have instead? Grain free granola that is packed with seeds, nuts, spices, coconut and nutrients, and you can use grain free granola in many ways:-
Add milk and berries
Add yoghurt and berries
Sprinkle on whipped cream and berries for a quick low carb dessert
Add to your grain free granola bars
Take a little pot in your handbag or car as an emergency snack
An incredibly easy and nutritious granola/muesli with no grains, no sugars and no nasties, which can be stored in the pantry, (even in the summer) where it should last for up to a month.
Alternatively, store in the fridge for up to 2 months.
Can be frozen for up to 3 months."
