Health Tip #2 in Breakfast Series

This morning I was up at 6am and had to be out the door early so on days like that I like to eat something that will be quick and easy; that's when I reach for the cereal. Straight out the box with some almond milk on top and you're good to go!
Now the next question is what kind of cereal is actually good for you. The cereal isle can so be so confusing and overwhelming and mostly filled with options that are actually unhealthy! I have one brand that I go to for guaranteed goodness and that's Kashi. I can count on them to use whole grain ingredients that are good for me. The new line on many cereal boxes is "made with whole grain." You'll see that on tons of boxes these days. Do not be fooled! There's only one way to know if something is truly made with whole grains and that's by looking at the fiber content on the nutritional value box. If fiber is 2g or less then this cereal is not for you. Put it back! A cereal that is truly made with real whole grains should be loaded with fiber, anywhere from 5 to 8 grams! That's a big difference and your tummy will know. Fiber is so important for your digestive health. Its like a broom that goes through and sweeps out your intestines getting rid of all the junk that can get stuck without the proper aid. Fiber is also going to help keep you full until your next snack or meal which will help you to make healthy choices because you won't be starving.  
So I had my Kashi Go Lean Crunch today. Tons of fiber and even the protein of 3 eggs! Can't go wrong with that. Here's to another great day!


  1. Very useful tips! coz usually i'll just grab and go without even reading the content coz i thought all cereals are healthy!LOL!! ;)






  3. Sounds like you have plenty of willpower and discipline. I just turned to a healthier lifestyle this february, and i've lost about 15 lbs, just about 5 more to go till my goal is reached. It's been hard and painful. I admire you for your power and you're an inspiration. Looking forward to the daily breakfast tips.

  4. OH SNAP! anonymous above me just posted your wedding pic jay and thara! what you guys gonna do now? simple answer:


  5. Hi thara,

    This is probably the best tip Eva for cereals ! My personal favorite is post and it's 8g of fiber. The brand you mentioned in your mail unfortunately we don't get that here in Singapore. I was jus telling my frenz about it and they got really excited. I hate marketing but I did jz for d sake of my body. Yes I do skip breakfast myself. Thanks to u and your motivational mail.

  7. Wow you guys seem like really sad stalkers who have nothing better to do than to get in other people's business!

    So what even if they are married? Whats wrong with wanting to keep their private life private? I happen to know that they are two very decent people, who have nothing but good in their hearts, who work extremely hard to be as successful as they are.

    Go and do something useful with your life you losers!

  8. Oh we will see how much your heart is broken and how much you wanna cry and how much you wanna delete your twitter that you made for jay and how much you wanna throw all his albums against the wall and how much you wanna delete your library of his music and how much regret you will have of those 8 years you dedicated for him.
    Yah we will see.

    It's their private life, I understand, but the fact that they say "oh I'm currently dating someone, oh I have a girlfriend" when their fREAKING MARRIED and possibly about to have a kid is not right. I would still be a fan if they said I don't wanna talk about it instead of flat out lying, ha but too bad they didn't decide about that before they lost millions of fans.

  9. wow! if the above pics are really the wedding pic and her wedding ring, i am shocked. I totally agree with the comment above mine coz they should not be hiding the truth from us fans!!! i would have still loved him even if he was married (lets face it, many celebs who r married are still as popular as ever). ive seen many of his vids n interviews too where he said he's 'dating' someone ...

    i just dont see the point at all!! Admitting he is married is not gonna hurt his career if he mentioned it from the start .. we fans would have been happy for him instead!! Not cool if we have been fans for God knows how many years! tsk tsk ... Jay and Thara, lying will not get u anywhere!!!
