Here’s the thing. I could eat Cocoa Pebbles like they’re crack. They are definitely the gateway drug to Cookie Crunch. And super definitely the gateway to Cookie Butt. Don’t ask me how I know.
So, when I swapped my life to paleo primal Cavegirl eatage, I made a firm pinky swear that cereal would be avoided hithertofore. Or whatever the right legalese for those sorts of swears happens to be.
But a girls gotta get in her crunchy morning bowl of yumyum from time to time.
And so, I started hunting for an easy cereal swap. And here’s what I discovered.
SECRET SKINNY CEREAL
When you’re walking down the Baking Aisle of your local grocer, glowering at the preservatives in boxed cake mixes, and steering clear of fake frosting while alternately mouthwatering over fotos of Funfetti cupcakes, stop yourself midaisle. You know, in the baggy nuts section.
You can grab two or three kinds of nuts for less than $5 usually. I love me some sliced almond, pecans, walnuts.
Toss those all in a bowl with yo’ favorite coconut milk or almond milk. Add a bunch of berries. If you have quinoa sitting around from last night’s Ancient Aztec Eats dinner menu (is this even a thing?) do it. Drop like it’s hot. In the bowl. (Although twerking is tres acceptable, too.)
It’s really that easy. Swap out the Cocoa Crack. Slide into ye’ olde skinny jeans. (Or whatever the legalese is for that phrase.)
SKINNY JEANS CEREAL
