Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidants Cereals

I have a confession to make.

I don't always care about eating healthy. *gasp*

I know I should. I really should. But I am an emotional eater. When I am busy and stressed out the last thing I want to do is think about making healthy food choices. Considering how stressful our life has been for the past 2 months it is not surprising that my eating habits have not been so stellar.

Unfortunately eating a whole bunch of junk just makes me feel worse. Not ideal.

It is for this reason that I have been forcing myself to eat better. I eat better so that I FEEL better.

I have been concentrating on 3 things:

1. Drinking more water.

I have been replacing unhealthy sugary beverages with a nice glass of ice water. Adding a little bit of lemon or lime makes it taste delicious.  Water helps flush all the nasty toxins and waste products out of our systems. It is easy to get dehydrated and that causes low energy, fatigue and headaches. There is just nothing good about that.

2. Keeping it simple.

I have been taking advantage of the wealth of information on the internet to find simple, healthy and tasty meals that we can make in a hurry at home. I choose recipes that have healthy AND yummy foods. I find that I get a lot less discouraged when I  take small steps towards a healthier lifestyle for myself and my family. If I try to do everything all at once I just end up getting overwhelmed and I quit which doesn't help anyone. 

3. Eating more fiber and antioxidants.

Everyone knows that fiber is great for avoiding constipation but did you know that fiber can also reduce your risk of colon cancer, heart disease and diabetes?! I had no idea. The trick for me though is finding fiber-rich foods that I actually enjoy eating.

I was given the chance to try out the new Kellogg's FiberPlus cereals this week and I figured if we liked them it would be a great way to add more fiber to our family diet. My whole family has tried FiberPlus Berry Yogurt Crunch cereal and FiberPlus Cinnamon Oat Crunch cereal this week.

I love cereal so I wasn't too surprised that I enjoyed both varieties. However I was very surprised that all three of my kids liked them too! Even my extremely picky 9 year old son with Autism enjoyed eating the two cereals dry for a snack after school. My 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter have both eaten the cereals every morning for breakfast over the past several days. This has been especially beneficial for my child who struggles with constipation.

The FiberPlus cereals are yummy and healthy- the perfect combination.

What do you do to encourage healthy eating for yourself and your family?
