Recipe For A Healthier Cereal

What did you nosh on this morning? A huge trough of Fruit Loops… Or are you the type to tote a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch around with you throughout the day?

Sorry to be the GRIMM REAPER OF FOOD but… those cereals among many others that line grocery store shelves are, well… scarier than some of the costumes you may see on Halloween!

Atrocious amounts of sugar, sneaky, hidden trans fatty acids, fiberless carbohydrates and added fillers all hide in these processed foods and contribute to that “muffin top”, “bagel butt” and “donut thighs” you don’t want.

If you weren’t planning on being a human cinnamon bun for Halloween…

Watch the latest episode on how to pick a HEALTHIER cereal, if you must eat cereal at all!

Mmm… Scrumptious! GiGi Eats Celebrities (or I guess Groceries today)!


Although who can resist these fruity bombs!? They are fruity… So does that qualify as eating fruit? NO!

  1. I eat rabbit food. Aka cardboard. Aka cereal with little to no flavor. Think bran, think kashi, think small pebbles of nothingness. Well to be honest I rarely eat’s just not my thang..but when I do I pick the rabbit food. YAY! I want HIGH fiber and high protein cereal..then I can be full for longer and SHIT like a boss!! YAY! GO GO GO GI GI GI GIGIGIGI!

      I LOVE TO SHIT LIKE A BOSS TOO! AH HAHA HA! But I actually DO NOT eat cereal EVER! I haven’t in about 10 years now! It’s kinda crazy but honestly, cereal in my opinion is CRAP – if you can’t tell by my video! LOL! What do you eat for breakfast, I am curious since I know your a VEG-HEAD! 😛

  2. I admit eating what seems to be paper, twigs and feathers but I cover it with coconut milk and a touch of honey. Kashi brand and some other thats called Ancient Grains, tastes ancient but healthy. Cereal about 2-3 x per week , the other days what ever is left from dinner. GiGi it seemed like your sugar may have been at record levels around 1:55 in your vid, 😀 very funny.

    • AH HA HA HA! Sugar high – no way! More like… LIFE HIGH!!! I get my energy from being so passionate about educating others on healthy and not so healthy foods in this world! :) Oh Kashi… I was going to RIP into that brand on my video but I didn’t want to really point any fingers at specific brands for fear I might get in trouble! I may have to make a blog post dedicated to the healthy and not so healthy cereals.

      • Give them hell GiGi just use code names, buy the way you ladies are fun, very candid
        “like a boss” I’m still laughing 😀

  3. I love Kellogs Product 19, I think it’s a much better for you cereal than a lot of alternatives.

  4. You just gave me a great idea for a Halloween costume…a human Cinnabun :)

    On a serious note: what about Puffins by Barbara’s are those ok???

    • Are you eating the Cinnamon or Plain version? If you’re eating either of these (in the correct portion sizes) then they’re actually NOT that bad! :) They have 5 or 6 grams of fiber and don’t have too too much sugar. There are definitely WORSE cereals out there. As long as you keep to the proper portion size you should be good! You know what’s best though, right? My butternut squash pancake, LOL!!!!! Pouring a bowl of cereal is wayyyy less time consuming though, lol.

      And if you dress up like a Cinnabun, then I will dress up as a… McFlurry?? Ah haha.

  5. Holy amazeballs! You’re adorable! xoxo

  6. Cereal is such an easy thing for me to have in the morning when I have 2 seconds to get ready because I overslept yet again. Thanks to this video, I don’t have to blame it all on my snoozing habits. :)

  7. Haha, I’m a former cereal addict – still have some now and then, but I try to stick to gluten free kinds!

  8. I used to eat cereal for breakfast and was always like, why am I hungry a few hours later? Because there’s nothing in there! :) I now have a protein shake and toast with PB and I stay full all morning, such a great feeling!

    • Heck yes! I love when I eat a protein rich meal and then I just forget about food all together so I can focus on the more important things during the day! :) I am so glad you ditched the cereal!

  9. Cereal gets pretty boring for me and doesn’t usually fill me up…. eggs are my go-to! With the occasional oatmeal with fruit mixed in when I’m craving sweet

    • I love sweet eggs, I usually mix in cinnamon and stevia and make a “pancake” just like that! So good. :) I just love how long eggs keep me full too! I’m glad you’ve found something that works for you!

  10. I want you for breakfast. 😉

  11. I never eat cereal anymore lol. If I can’t have Frosted flakes…there’s no point
