Uncle Sam’s Cereal

I won my very first blog giveaway on Don’t (White) Sugar Coat It, and was given a coupon for a free box of Uncle Sam’s cereal. It was quite an exciting moment!

Now I’ll be honest, I don’t eat a lot of cold cereal these days. Not because I don’t like it, but because I have a hard time just eating one bowl. If there’s a little milk leftover, I’ll add some cereal. And if there’s a little cereal at the bottom, I’ll add some milk. And thus I end up eating more than I need. It’s a vicious cycle. Plus, sometimes when I eat cereal I am hungry again just a couple of hours later.

But I was still very happy to try a new cereal, especially one that features whole grains and flax seed, offering plenty of carbohydrate, fiber, and some healthy fat. I poured my first bowl, and loved the crunch. The texture was great, but the flavor was just a little too plain. So the next time I tried it, I tossed in a few raisins. That pushed this cereal from good to great, and I wasn’t hungry again until lunchtime. If you are looking for a new cold cereal, this is a great choice.

Thanks to both Elizabeth and attune for giving me the chance to try it out!
