Kashi GOLEAN Cereal

15 Jul

When I’m in a hurry in the morning, Kashi GOLEAN cereal is a pretty decent tasting cereal, and the only one I’ve found that has anywhere near the right carb/protein ratio:

(a 1 cup serving with 1/2 cup skim milk has 17g protein/36g carbs/1g fat/181 calories). Don’t be afraid of the “fiber twigs” – it’s pretty tasty.

Be careful, though – there’s a bunch of Kashi GOLEAN cereals that aren’t nearly this high in protein and most have more carbs to boot! The “Crunch” version with 1/2 cup skim milk has 13g protein/43g carbs/3g fat/230 calories – the carbs put it out of my ideal range and it doesn’t taste that much better to make it worth it, in my opinion.

The Heart to Heart ones are pretty much you standard cereals, like Cheerios but not even as tasty. For Farrell’s, the one pictured above is the only one I’ve found that’s within (or even near) the recommended ratios.

Where can you find it?

At Wal-mart, its in the cereal aisle, but at Hy-Vee in Cedar Rapids, it’s in the organic section. Or you can buy it at Amazon, but it seems a bit pricy there.
