The Reinvention of Grape Nuts Cereal

See also

March is National Nutrition Month, and for many people their eating habits may be in need of a check up. The hurried, and always on the run, among us need to be at the front of the line. In a recent national survey by the good folks at Grape-Nuts, more than 70% of Americans feel their weekly meal plan needs a makeover, and a whopping 86% of Americans admit they replace meals with snacks during a typical week. Grape-Nuts, the classic crunchy whole grain, and fiber-filled cereal, is hoping to be part of a new game plan and the beginning of that reinvented breakfast regimen.

The cereal itself has a very crunchy toasted flavor. It's not sweet, with only 5 grams of sugar, but is packed with 8 grams of protein to provide the energy to start the day. With added fruit, like blueberries or a banana, it can be habit forming.

For easy, on the go breakfasts, there are new Grape-Nuts recipes that integrate hearty whole grains into portable, delicious options. Try Grape-Nuts Overnight Apple Pie Breakfast Pudding for a morning protein boost, and Grape-Nuts Energy Bars for hearty helpings of whole grains and fruits. Visit the web site: postfoods.com. for more details and specific recipe directions.
