Quick & Easy Breakfast!

Cereal is a quick fallback for most people. You throw it in a bowl and breakfast is served. But have you ever glanced at the nutrition facts on a box of your favorite cereal? Us, ketoers, are well aware of the carbs and sugars found in most boxed cereal, but let’s take a second to appreciate just how bad it can be!

Some of the top contenders for “worst start to your day” are cereals that are 50% sugar! Imagine eating a bowl of cereal and half of it is pure sugar. Most of these cereals list sugar as their first ingredient, followed by wheat, of course. Golden Crisp, for example, is 51% sugar by weight. Eating a bowl of it is essentially eating a bowl of sugar with some crispy rice mixed into it.

Not much exists in terms of low carb cereal, as it is by nature made from wheat, oats or crispy rice in some form. Sure, there can be gluten free cereals or paleo granolas here and there, but they’re laden with sugar to make them more palatable to the average person. What to do? Make your own!

DIY Cereal - Low Carb Cereal, Gluten Free Cereal, Paleo Cereal at Home!

A quick and easy way we’ve found we can enjoy a crunchy start to the day is making a batch of our own chocolately, low carb, paleo & gluten free cereal mix and enjoying it with almond milk! It’s full of nuts, seeds and cocoa nibs for chocolate flavor and serious crunch! We got our cocoa nibs from Anthony’s Goods. They’re incredibly addictive little bites of pure chocolate. Our favorite way to enjoy them is sprinkled onto a spoonful of peanut butter. Cocoa nibs are mostly fat, with some protein and carbs, though they have a good amount of fiber in them as well. They give extra chocolate flavor to anything you put them in and we highly recommend them!

Best of all, our low carb, paleo & gluten free cereal is 13 grams of fiber in a serving!
