Hi-Lo Cereal

Hi-Lo Cereal

It has been a while since my last post. As some of you may know from my recent Facebook post, I was blessed with a healthy baby girl several days before Christmas. I decided to take a break from the blog due to long hours at work late in pregnancy which left me fatigued and with little free time. Now, I am busy caring for a newborn baby so finding the time to prepare meals and snacks in the kitchen doesn’t come easy. During my pregnancy, I did up my carbs and even enjoyed some sweets I never would have touched before. Once the holidays are over, I intend to get back to my regular low carb diet. I gained about 30-35 pounds during pregnancy. As of this morning, I have about 15-20 pounds to lose to get back to my pre-pregnancy size.

I wanted to do a quick review on one of the cereal products I recently discovered. The brand is Hi-Lo by Nutritious Living. I originally found and purchased the product at Netrition, but find it more convenient to purchase from Amazon.com now. It is my new fix for morning hunger as I don’t always have the time or energy to make eggs. The cereal is sweetened with Splenda and comes in two flavors, Vanilla Almond and Maple Pecan. I love both flavors, but do like the Maple Pecan a bit more. This cereal is great paired with Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk. It makes a great quick and easy Hi Protein, low carb breakfast. Net carbs are about 6g for each 1/2 cup serving. The protein for one serving is 12g so it will fill you up for several hours.

    Hi, congrats on new family addition, what a wonderful Christmas gift! We understand the busi-ness involved with work, pregnancy and holidays! My daughter was due on the 20th and delivered a baby girl on the 12th, she has very little time for anything except baby and trying to rest.

    Definitely missed your postings, your recipes are wonderful. Thank you.

    Best wishes to you and your family this holiday season and for all of 2013!

      Thanks Sue. It definitely has been much busier with the new baby. I was blessed with a fairly good girl who doesn’t cry too much. Congrats to your daughter. I was due on 12/12/12, but delivered a week after the due date. Sounds like your daughter was just about the opposite. The 12th is a pretty cool birthday with all the 12’s.

        oops, actually Parker was born on the 11th … so many people noted that it would have been ‘cool’ to have been the 12th. The 11th was good cuz of other month’s birthdays on the 11th. and 12-11-12 is kinda cool too, LOL
