Tips & Tricks for Cereal-Lovers!

Milk It! - Tired of looking to your flakes or crunchies to make your breakfast

bowl pop? Change it up by flavoring your MILK with guilt-free stuff instead of

relying on high-calorie cereals for flavor. Use Splenda Flavors for Coffee,

cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, unsweetened cocoa powder, no-calorie

sweetener -- you name it -- and get creative by combining 'em! Just

remember to start with a guilt-free milk or milk substitute, like Unsweetened

Almond Breeze, light soymilk, low-fat milk, or skim milk. Flavored milk will

breathe new life into your morning meal.

Fruit Freeze It! - Everyone knows adding fruit to cereal is good. Humans

have been doing it for ages. But instead of using regular old fruit, try adding

ZAZZLE and CRUNCH to your cold cereal by tossing in handfuls of freeze-

dried fruit -- like the ones from the Sensible Foods, Cereal Toppers, Gerber

Mini Fruits, Just Tomatoes, and Crispy Green product lines. They taste great

and won't add many calories at all. In fact, a half-cup of the stuff typically

has only 60 - 70 calories, <0.5g fat, and a gram of fiber (POINTS® value


Fiber-ize It! - Mixing 1/4 cup of Fiber One bran cereal (original) with ANY

cereal is a fantastic idea. You'll add just 30 calories to your b-fast, and you'll

get the benefits of an extra 7 grams of fiber (POINTS® value 0*) -- plus,

you'll get to eat more, too. Wowow!!!

Puff It Up! - Looking to make your cereal bowl fuller, puffier and more

satisfying? Even if you don't enjoy it straight, spiking your favorite cereal

with some puffed wheat, puffed corn, puffed rice, or other puffed stuff will

add major bulk to your cereal bowl for hardly any calories. An entire cup of

most plain puffed cereal has only around 50 fat-free calories plus 0 - 2g fiber

(POINTS® value 1*). We also love Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs (1 cup = 70

calories, 0.5g fat, 1g fiber -- POINTS® value 1*). Mmmmm!
