Heart 1st cereal

I hope everyone had a great easter, loved my 5 day weekend!!!!! What did everyone get up to? I managed to hit the gym twice, watched a few episodes of Californication, read about 40 pages of Angels & Demons, watched Fast and furious 5, and ate SO MUCH FOOD! I had pretty much a food related event everyday.

Friday - yumcha
Saturday - house dinner
Sunday - picnic with friends, dinner at my uncles
Monday - lunch at my uncles, bbq with friends
Tuesday - lunch at my workmate's place, and sushi train for dinner

I feel totally bloated today :( Monday - Friday i can eat so damn well, and i squeeze in 2 hrs of exercise each day, but then come the weekend/holidays, i eat so badly..

So this morning I've taken out my box of health 1st cereal to have with banana and skim milk. I was sent this from Laura of Mark communications back in February, and since then I've finished it and bought another box to start on.

This cereal is sweetened not with sugar but with honey, golden syrup, cranberries, cinnamon and has three types of nuts almonds hazels and pecans, & 3 types of seeds flax, sunflower and buckwheat. What makes this cereal so good for you though, is the combination of wholegrain barley with wholegrain oat flakes, which leaves you feeling fuller, for longer, making it very low GI.

You can get more information on Superfoods other products here.

So this week i am very much detoxing! Lots of fruits, vegies, brown rice, lots of green tea, and two hours exercising everyday, eating so much junk on the long weekend has left me bloated and my body is really feeling the effects of eating bad foods.

Sounds like you had a super long weekend! :D

I haven't tried this cereal, but it sounds really yum!

Oooh, I bought this cereal a while back and rather enjoyed it too! I like the hint of bitterness to it. Is this the kind with the cranberries and things when the other flavours don't have them? Because I liked the one with fruit the best :)

Hurrah for long weekends! I kinda felt I wasted mine doing nothing, but actually spending time with the family was lovely!

I need to go on a long detox after my trip as well! 3 weeks of full on eating....

What a fun weekend! I feel the need to have some cleansing foods after pigging out, too. Hope the detox freshens you up! :)

I would love to try this one out! I think it's a great cereal from the way you described it.

Thanks for sharing!

When I'm binging on sugar and carbs straight for more than two days, I feel lazy to even go to the gym. And my way of saying sorry to my poor health, I bought a tread mill. LOL But yeah. I prefer my cereals to be wholegrain oats with fruits (apples mostly) but I haven't tried hearts 1st though. Might try it sometime soon. Thanks for sharing!

I gained 6 lbs. in 1 week alone!!! Thank goodness for that alarm that goes off every week (my scale)! How I would LOVE to remain in oblivion!
