Cereal is such an easy and cheap breakfast for busy mornings. The problem is that most typical boxed cereals on the market are extremely high in added sugars.
Breakfast, as the first meal of the day, is very important for starting your day off right. Eating a well balanced meal that contains healthy fats, protein, and carbohydrates will help regulate your blood sugar and keep you fuller for longer.
The problem with most cereal is that is primarily simple carbs, without much protein. This means that one bowl of cereal is likely not very satisfying. High sugar cereals will also spike your blood sugar, followed by an energy crash.
Certain cereals and granolas with more whole food ingredients can provide a much more nutritious and filling breakfast. Here at U-raaw you can create your own unique cereal, of raw ingredients. You get to choose from a wide variety of wholesome grains, nuts, and dried fruits.
