Big G Cereal and Giveaway!

A few weeks ago General Mills asked me to review their cereal. They sent me a coupon for a free box of cereal and also a book,“The Belly Fat Prescription,” by Dr. Travis Stork, MD.

I was very excited when I received both gifts in the mail. I love General Mills cereal and the coupon was for MultiGrain Cheerios. I find them the most filling of all of the Big G cereals. I am not much of a cereal person but when I do eat cereal I want something that is going to keep me full for a few hours. This stuff seems to do the trick.

Cheerios also make a great snack for kids and adults. I remember when my girls first started eating. I would give them Cheerios to eat and they just loved them. I also like to keep a little baggy in my purse in case I am out and I get hungry and need a little snack.

This is a great article that I found on whole grains on Big G's website.

5 Ways Whole Grain Can change your life

Scientific evidence that whole grain is good for your body.
1.Heart health. Heart-healthy diets rich in whole grain foods can reduce the risk of heart disease.
2.Reduce cancer risk. Low fat diets rich in fiber-containing grain products, fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, particularly of the stomach and colon.
3.Manage diabetes. The American Diabetes Association recommends whole grain as part of a diabetic diet.
4.Keep you regular. Fiber from whole grains promotes regularity and keeps the intestines working smoothly to help maintain good digestive health.
5.Weight management. A growing body of evidence supports that people who eat more whole grain tend to have healthier body weights and gain less weight over time than those who don’t.


If you are anything like me you probably love anything whole grain because it seems to keep you full longer then foods without whole grains. I am very thankful that there are companies like General Mills that make this type of product for us. Thanks General Mills!!!

General Mills was also generous enough to offer a Giveaway on my blog!

My personal favorite is plain Cheerios, and I used them as a snack when I lost all my weight. My kids love the Apple Cinnamon variety.
