Calories in Cold Cereal

Written by Sky Taylor, Diet Bites

Inexpensive and Delicious

Don't ya just love that crunch! Corn flakes are one of the most economical foods on the planet, but they must be eaten shortly after the milk gets added or they go soggy in the cereal bowl.

And when the added milk is of the reduced fat variety - it makes them happier, and yes - much lighter in caloric and dietary fat content.

If we add some fresh sliced fruit or whole berries to the bowl, they get even happier. So happy in fact that at times we may just heart a snap, crackle and a popping sound if we listen very closely - and use our wild imaginations, of course.

Recipe Uses

But they aren't just for that first meal of the day - when you're waking up and really don't realize what you're eating or drinking at the moment.

Corn flakes can be used in numerous ways - from crushing and creating a healthy breading for proteins and vegetables to being added in dessert recipes.

The Cereal Diet

Want to lose a few layers of fat? You can certainly accomplish such by making savvy use of cereal - and that includes corn flakes.

Go ahead and enjoy breakfast and lunch as you normally would but when supper rolls around, rather than loading up on your regular food faire - enjoy a serving of cereal instead. Also add a serving of fruit and a slice of toast smeared with either a serving of fruit preserves or reduced fat margarine.

Take note that it's key to eat a good, hearty and filling meal for lunch so that when that last meal of the day arrives, you won't be famished.

You'll certainly feel lighter come morning. And in time, you'll also look a lot lighter!
