How Do You Start Your Day and A Giveaway!

So how do you start your day? I know how important breakfast is but, many mornings it just seems like our day gets going and somehow breakfast has slipped my mind. Thankfully, my kids have not adopted that bad habit. One of the first things they do in the morning is make themselves something to eat. I have been trying lately to make wiser choices on Weight Watchers and so you can imagine when My Blog Spark and Fiber One gave me an opportunity to try out their Fiber One cereal I jumped at the chance.

I have to say I was a little skeptical about the taste when I first read there was 14 grams of fiber in one serving. I was pleasantly surprised! The cereal is actually really good, even my 8 year old loves it. My favorite way to eat it is with a cup of fat free milk and sliced bananas - a 3 point breakfast on WW and so filling. I love making it through the morning without the need to snack. Many mornings when I skip breakfast by lunch I am starving and I grab the first thing I see - not always the wisest choice. Fiber One wants you all to have an opportunity to try out their cereal and see for yourself how great it tastes and how filling it can be. The first 15 readers to click on the site below will receive a free box of Fiber One cereal.

Fiber One sent me a gift pack (pictured below) along with the Fiber One cereal and guess what? They are letting me give away a gift pack to one of my readers! The "Help Take the Hunger out of Dieting" prize pack includes a box of Fiber One Original cereal, a cereal-on-the-go container, food scale, water bottle and notepad for tracking what you eat.

To enter, just leave me a comment telling me your go to breakfast to start your day. I will choose a random winner, a week from today, on November 16th. To earn an extra entry post about my giveaway on your blog or facebook and link back to this post - then just leave another comment letting me know what you did.

Disclosure: General Mills provided me a box of Fiber One Cereal, a prize pack and information about their product through MyBlogSpark.com.

I always have cold breakfast cereal of some kind. I try to pick the healthier whole grain ones with more fiber as they keep me full until lunchtime. I can't handle eggs in the morning and love oatmeal but not for breakfast for some reason. Lately I do cereal the 'Seinfeld' way and mix 2 or more kinds. :-)
