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.
