PowerUp Cereal n Berry Breakfast, Good Carb Formula

Good morning! This is a lazy day I can tell. Sleep played hide-n-seek with me last night, so feeling mellow.

I poured 1/2 c. of high fiber cereal into a bowl, sliced organic strawberries, chopped a two inch strip of organic lemon rind and tossed it in, poured almond milk over all and then sprinkled freshly ground flax-seeds to top it off.

That is a bowl full of nature's magic!... high fiber, healthy fat from flax seeds and more fiber, super anti-oxidant berries and lemon peel, and healthy fat in almond milk.

Note: When you shop for cereal make sure it has less than 4g of sugar per serving.  Also, it's critical that you calculate the Fiber to Carb ratio. You don't want to spike your blood sugar...that's the critical consideration when eating carbs.

Good carb formula: Multiply the fiber by 10.  It should exceed the carb count.  For example Trader Joe's High Fiber Cereal (that's what it's called!)  has 23g of carbs and 9g of fiber per serving.  That means the ratio is  (9x10 to 23) 90 fiber to 23 carb! An excellent choice.

If it had 3g of fiber the ratio would have been 30 fiber- 23 carb, kinda ok but not so great.
