On my breakfast food adventure, I discovered Rip's Power-Up Bowl Double Berry Hot Cereal made by Engine 2 Plant-Strong (a Whole Foods product).
It's a hot cereal that's USDA organic and certified gluten-free. Imagine oatmeal with strawberries and blueberries. Now imagine adding in quinoa and sesame seeds on top.
One serving has 34g of whole grains and 4g of protein. I love adding fresh blueberries and a 1/2 tsp of organic sugar. Bypassing the nutritional content, it tastes great and gives you more variety in breakfast options.
One bag should last a week or two and costs about $5 at Whole Foods. Need I remind you that 1 box of Cheerios costs about $4 and will only last about a week? Have you considered that for a dollar more you could be tripling your health benefits and shopping less often?
Plus, if you start your day with this hot cereal and two eggs, you're getting in about 15g of protein, or about 30% of your recommended protein intake for the day. Protein not only feeds your muscles and brain but also keeps you feeling fuller longer.
Rip's Power-Up Bowl also contain sesame seeds which are one of the most potent seeds for fighting high cholesterol, blood pressure and cancer. You'd literally be giving your body everything it needs to start your day.
Visit your local Whole Foods (assuming you have one) and try out this fast and easy breakfast that's sure to please not only your taste buds but your body too!
