I was looking to boost up my protein intake and after looking a few things up online I stumbled upon an article about Special K’s brand of cereal that is very high in protein. I looked up the product and put it on my shopping list. I had a hard time finding it at the store at first and then spotted it on the very bottom shelf and it was the last box left. I calculated the points plus values (3 for a ¾ cup serving) and into the cart it went.
The greatest part of this cereal is the fact that it offers 10 grams of protein in a single ¾ cup serving. I try to have protein with every meal and I find this cereal completely satisfies me and keeps me full. Typically cereals satisfy my hunger for a couple hours and then I’m immediately starving. Adding some fruit to the cereal definitely bulks it up and makes it a very satisfying and filling breakfast.
The flavor of the cereal reminds me of a cross between Corn Flakes and Frosted Flakes. They’re not sweet but there is a hint of sweetness to it (if that makes sense). They’re crunchy but it’s softer than Frosted Flakes would be because this cereal is made from wheat. I would suggest waiting to put your milk on it right before you begin to eat it because your cereal will sog out on you quickly (within 10 minutes at least).
I do quite enjoy this cereal and will definitely pick up another box once I finish this one.
What is your favorite high protein/fiber cereal?
