Cereal – Everybody’s Favorite

Everyone in the world eats pretty much eats cereal for breakfast now. Home-made or commercial, it doesn’t matter; breakfast the world over would not be complete without it. But here’s the catch: America is also becoming more watchful of its carb intake. This new level of wariness of carbohydrates, sugars, rice, wheat, and the like, is apparent in the sudden drop in demand of such ingredients.You may very well be one of these people – I certainly am.

Thus begins the quest for the low carb cereal. Somewhere out there, there has to be a cereal brand that’s grain-less and carb-less; or would that be too much to ask for?

Is this really the only low carb cereal?

Unfortunately, NO, there isn’t. Claims of being low carb recipes are brandished about on some cereal boxes and labels. And while they may be slightly lower-carb than the sugary kids cereals that we all fondly remember, they are most certainly not anything approaching low carb or often even low sugar.

Besides, even those who are not carb-conscious but would simply like to limit toxicity brought about by grain intake can hardly – if ever – find cereals nowadays that do not have any grain in them. Rice might be less toxic than other grains, but too much processing for rice-based products pretty much cancel out any nutritive values they might originally have.

Worse, the amount of sugars added to most cereals is too excessive – even more than what we actually need. Processed sugar does nothing for anyone; nothing EXCEPT detrimental effects.

Considering the pace of advancements in food technology, it is quite surprising that no one has yet found a way to stock supermarket shelves with good low-carb cereal that’s both nutritious and delicious. I think we all know that it’s healthier in the end for us to actually eat whole foods, but the fact of the matter is that I just find it easier to have a bowl of cereal in the morning, and I’d like for someone to satisfy that need.
