Supermarket Saturday: Trader Joe’s Toasted Oatmeal Flakes

fullsizerender1

The American cereal aisle is a sea of sugar and refined grains.  Decent (healthy, delicious and satisfying) cereal is REALLY hard to find. Yes, I could grab a box of Bran Flakes or Fiber One but I’d rather not eat cardboard for breakfast.   I often find myself calling upon The Force to beam down some new cereal options.  Unfortunately, The Force is not within me, so I end up with something “healthy-ish”.  That is until I found Trader Joe’s Toasted Oatmeal Flakes…

“Made with Whole Grain Rolled Oats & Whole Grain Wheat”,  it’s like Frosted Flakes on steroids.  And by steroids, I mean beefed up with healthy ingredients like whole wheat, oats and a lot less sugar than you find in most cereal (see below).  More importantly, it’s delicious, super crunchy (and holds it’s crunch in milk), and because it’s got 3 g fiber and 3 grams of protein (both naturally occurring) it will keep you fuller longer. And since it’s just flakes, it’s a perfect base for a handful of berries and a sprinkling of sliced almonds for an extra boost of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
