I figured I would start on a health streak because I would like to lose weight. I was wondering if fiber-one cereal is good for breakfast and the fiber-one bars good for lunch? or should I have something else with it? Thanks to anyone reads this and gives a bit of advice. =]
Hi there! I'd definitely recommend pairing the fiber one bars with something else, because they are quite low in calories and not large enough for a meal. I eat them as a middle of the day snack. The caramel kind is my favorite! I haven't had the cereal myself, but I'd just make sure it has plenty of protein as well (I believe it does). You can always add in some fruit to have with your cereal.
Hello sassygal. I agree with TurRrRa, you need to eat other foods for balanced nutrition. I found that a fruit yogurt with a fiber one bar is really good. The cereal is good too. Again just add a little fruit. A little heads up though, if you eat all that fiber...drink a lot of water otherwise you will get constipated. I know from exsperience.
Personally, I think you'd be much better off eating a bowl of plain oatmeal for breakfast. It has plenty of whole grains, fiber, & protein. Some really tasty and nutritious add-in ideas are....fresh or frozen berries, ground flaxseed, natural peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, apples, nuts, dried cranberries or raisins...the possibilities are endless. It will keep you feeling full longer, while providing enough calories and energy to get you through your morning. Just my .02 cents!
I thought of one other thing I forgot to mention. I have the "Hungry Girl" book with healthy recipes for foods that may typically not be healthy. One idea was to make healthy chicken tenders. To do this, the author says to use strips of chicken breast, dip them in some egg whites or egg beaters, and then roll them in some crushed Fiber One cereal to make the crispy outside. Then you bake them! For this, you definitely have to have the PLAIN Fiber One cereal though. Just another idea of an extra way to get some fiber and get some lean protein from the chicken.
