So I am a breakfast junkie. I must start my morning with breakfast of some sort. I typically don't have time to fix eggs and toast, so I have to eat cereal. I came across Kashi Go Lean Crunch when I was undergrad, at that time I used to eat if for the taste. My mom re-introduced it to me and pointed out the nutrition benefits.
Now, I am no nutrition expert but I thought this cereal was worth talking about because this is the only cereal I have found where 1 bowl keeps me full until my mid-morning snack or lunch (fruit or yogurt). It is high in protein, fiber, and omega-3. I love it because it has less calories than your typical box of granola and it is still sweet and crunchy.
The cereal has 200 calories (240 cal w/ 2% milk), 8g of fiber, and 9g of protein.
If you think 240 calories is too much. I recommend mixing 1/2 cup Kashi Go lean with 1/2 cup of cheerios (150 cal, 200 cal w/ 2% milk)/. You will probably get just as full and save 50 calories.

If you have never tried it it's definitely worth the try. Hopefully it will fill you up to. If it doesn't try eating it with a piece of fruit.
I typically purchase them when there are sale 2/$6 or 2/$5. Otherwise they are about $4.50/box.
Just to update you guys, I have experienced a lot of life changes in the past month. It's kept me quite busy which is why my blogging has been sporadic. I was accepted into my top choice Clinical Pychology PhD program which is located in Maryland. I will be moving to the D.C. area at the end of July. Also, my boyfriend proposed to me, I am soooo excited.
My health is still a priority. I still work out 5-6 times a week. I alternate days with weight training and do cardio at least 5 x a week. I have new motivation (the wedding) to loose the rest of the weight, so hopefully I will meet my goal.
Please share, Have you ever tried Kashi Go lean?
