Starting Your Day Off Right

Hi friends!

How is your week going?  Mine is going pretty good.

Health and fitness wise, I’ve gone on a couple runs AND I am looking forward to a free yoga class today or tomorrow.  It’s my birthday week and the studio I go to offers a free class on your birthday week.  I’m all packed and ready to go!

Rhett’s birthday is next Tuesday. He will be 14! Can you believe it?  He sadly does not get a free yoga class 🙂   He does however, excel at the downward dog pose.

I’ve also been busy sampling a delicious cereal Special K sent me to try out, Red Berries.

Special K Red Berries-5-1

I’ve got to tell you, I’m a fan!

This bowl, along with morning exercise, is my favorite way to start off my day right now.  I often eat two small meals in the morning, one before I work out and one after.  A bowl of Red Berries with milk is just enough energy to get me out the door, without going calorie crazy.

It’s packed with whole grains and real dried strawberries.  Yum… berries!

As a big fruit fan, I was surprised at how many were in the box.  Special K tells me they recently added even more berries.

I can have a quick meal in less than five minutes of waking up and then go workout.

This delicious cereal has fiber, folic acid and vitamin D while still tasting super yummy.  The flakes are crunchy with just the right amount of sweetness.  It has no high-fructose corn syrup and just a few ingredients on the box.  With skim milk it is less than 150 calories per serving.

It’s nourishing and great tasting  Can’t beat that!

I routinely eat cereal and fruit in the mornings, but as fall approaches and berries go out of season, I know I will be turning even more to Special K Red Berries to get my berry fix.  Tracking Pixel

    I don’t eat cereal anymore but when I did this was one of my favorites.

    I’m not a big cereal fan because of the higher sugar content. I will typically only eat cheerios! It does look yummy with the dried fruit thought!

    I’ve been eating Special K Red Berries for several years now. I love it! This is by far my favorite Special K cereal. Hope you have a wonderful birthday!

    Happy early birthday! I love your yoga studio gives you a shoutout to make those numbers a little easier to swallow (at least it would help me!)

    These sound good and I love that they have real red berries. I will have to pick these up and try them. I usually eat cereal dry because I don’t drink milk I think these would be a great snack.

    I can’t have that cereal anymore thanks to developing a wheat allergy, but I used to LOVE that stuff!

      Such a bummer! You make such good alternatives though!

  12. I haven’t had special K in a while and love the almond flavor this looks yummy though. I’m hungry!

    • JulieWunder August 20, 2015 at 8:19 am - Reply

      The almond flavor is yummy too! I buy the protein one sometimes too.

    I used to eat Special K Red Berries all the time when I was younger (or some variation of them)! They were quite yummy 🙂

    yeah when there is a box of Red Berries in the house it is all out war to see who gets more of it…yes it has even resorted to hiding the box…

    • JulieWunder August 19, 2015 at 9:41 pm - Reply

      Haha! That’s awesome. IF that isn’t a testament to a good cereal, I don’t know what is!

  15. Jessie August 19, 2015 at 7:03 am - Reply

    I too am working with Red Berries. I was shockingly surprised just how delicious this cereal it was. One of my favorite parts HAS to be that it’s made with REAL dried strawberries. So cool!

    • JulieWunder August 19, 2015 at 9:40 pm - Reply

      Yay for Red Berries gigs! It is really very very good!

    I’m not going to lie, I’m terribly jealous that you are working with Special K. I used to be addicted to Red Berries, and I just (as in last night) finished a box of the original. My favorite brand.
