Weet-Bix October

I ate Weet-Bix for breakfast everyday in October.

Weet-Bix is a high-fiber, low-sugar, and low-cost breakfast cereal widely available in this part of the world. It may not be the healthiest breakfast but I bet they are healthier than most cereals. I reckon only rolled oats are healthier than Weet-Bix. I like Weet-Bix because they are super simple to make, I can’t eat more than two of them and they feel nice and light in the stomach. But like most of the healthy foods, Weet-Bix are bland and tasteless. So I haven’t been eating them as often as I would like and was eating tongue-pleasing options like bread with peanut butter or nut and seed flavored muesli.

At the end of September, I felt I had enough and decided to eat only Weet-Bix for breakfast in October. I haven’t done any 30-day experiment so far this year. So this sounded like a good and healthy experiment.

Here is my breakfast recipe for the last 31 days: Boil little milk for two minutes, add two Weet-Bix, and a smattering of sunflower and pumpkin seeds and a few roast almonds. Wait for two minutes and enjoy!

As a result of this experiment, I loved Weet-Bix more than ever. So I am happy to continue eating them.

My four-year old too loves Weet-Bix and eats two of them with milk and some raisins. Hopefully he will not give in to sugary cereals as he grows up. I will try my best to keep him interested in Weet-Bix by eating them myself, which I am more than happy to.

What do you eat for breakfast and why?
