Which Cereals Do SOUL Instructors Love to Eat?
October 21, 2015
Sure, you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but did you know that when it comes to AM meal choices, cereal is the MVP? Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health found that people who fill up on fiber rich cereal in the morning live longer and have reduced risk of death from diabetes and cancer than those who skip cereal. And having a bowlful at breakfast can lower your BMI, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. So grab a spoon and suss out some healthy options that our instructors dig into in the AM — or anytime!
My favorite cereal is granola! I love all different kinds! It’s good plain, with milk, or in yogurt!
I like Frosted Mini Wheats because it’s full of fiber. I usually slice up a banana to add in there as well.
Life cereal, hands down! Can’t tell you why. It’s not the sweetest cereal and it’s actually not bad for you either. But I almost never buy it because the box will last all of five minutes!
Honey Nut Cheerios! It reminds me of weekends at my grandfather's house! Add some blueberries and coconut milk for extra/healthy flavor and you’re ready for your day!
Cascadian Farm Raisin Bran. This stuff, with 2 percent milk, is heaven. Add a little honey, and it's the perfect dessert.
Honey Nut Cheerios — I also eat it dry with no milk as a snack!

My favorite cereal is Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs...which is why I rarely eat cereal. I'm an oatmeal girl. I have a bowl of Nature's Promise organic Maple Cinnamon every morning with a half of a banana and a scoop of almond butter. It's got everything you need post-workout, and it keeps me full.
I love a small bowl of granola cereal in the morning and green tea.
I love Bran flakes with raisins… or Raisin Bran!
Cheerios Protein Oats and Honey.
My favorite cereal changes rather regularly. I'm feeling the flavors of the fall lately, so my current favorite cereal is Nature's Path Crunchy Maple Sunrise. I love the flavor and it is jam-packed with super grains (flax, quinoa + buckwheat). I have to admit that sometimes my cravings get to me, and because I do like to live a little, Lucky Charms find their way into my apartment every now and then.
My all-time FAVORITE cereal is Frosted Mini Wheats. But, if I'm watching my gluten intake, I love Rice Chex Vanilla or Cinnamon flavor.
Kashi Go Lean Crunch! It has a sweet crunchy taste that’s perfect to eat on its own or sprinkled on top of yogurt to sub for granola!
I don't typically eat cereal, but if I had to pick my favorite, I'd say Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Honey Nut Bunches of Oats.
I used to be a cereal junkie, but since I don't drink milk anymore, I've whittled it down to the 365 brand (Whole Foods) of Raisin Bran with coconut milk.
Mine is Lucky Charms, because every marshmallow seems special and makes me feel lucky.
My favorite cereal would be Frosted Mini Wheats! Because a. They’re delicious and b. They give me the perfect amount of fuel and c. If someone asks if you had your "wheaties" that day you can reply, "Indeed. And they were frosted." Win win.
