High Protein Cereal
High protein cereal is a healthy and convenient way to increase your protein intake each day.Protein takes longer for the body to process than carbohydrates, so eating protein will help you to feel full for longer.
As a busy mother of 3 I eat 3 meals a day and at least 2 snack. I try not to go more than 3 hours without eating so I keep a constant supply of amino acids to my muscles. Protein rich cereal and protein drinks are part of my every day nutrition and that of my children as well. High protein cereal is frequently high in fiber as well and helps to keep the body balanced.
A serving of cereal alone is not going to provide enough protein for most adults in the morning so I recommend accompanying it with eggs and or a protein drink. Personally, I like high protein oatmeal in the morning.
Another thing you can always consider is using whey protein powder mixed into oatmeal, Cream of Wheat or other hot cereals.. You can mix it with cereal or milk.
It’s worth the calories to eat some tasty high protein cereal. Not only is it filling, it provides a variety of other essential nutrients including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Not to mention whole grains and fiber frequently. Minerals are important for bone health, electrolyte balance and blood pressure control.
Amaranth, Cream of Wheat and quinoa are also mineral-rich cereals. The nice thing is that you have options. There is more than one way to get high protein cereal.
