Love cereals but seriously confused about which ones you should be buying? Or whether you should be eating cereal at all? The good news is you don’t have to give up your beloved breakfast crunch. Mueslis and cereals also make great toppings for chia puddings, yoghurt, acai bowls and smoothies.
Making your own at home is always good, but if you don’t have the time to do so, there are some great ready-made options to choose from. Always make sure to get a good dose of protein, healthy fats and fibre at breakfast to help sustain you until lunch. These nutrients will help you stay fuller for longer without the blood sugar spike.
