According to the International Food Information Council, 9 out of 10 Americans don’t get enough fiber in their diet–the Recommended Daily Value of 25 grams per day. We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s crucial to make wise nutrition decisions that will jump start your metabolism in the morning and help you start the day off right.
Fiber One has made it easy to begin the day with a wholesome helping of fiber with their line of products, and the newest flavor in the Fiber One cereal lineup does just the same. Fiber One Nutty Clusters & Almonds is packed with crunchy nut clusters, whole grain flakes, and my favorite part, real sliced almonds. Every serving contains 11 grams of fiber (43% of the Recommended Daily Value), 23 grams of whole grain (at least 48% of the Recommended Daily Value), and is just 180 calories.
I recently had the opportunity to try the new Fiber One Nutty Clusters & Almonds for myself, and overall, I really enjoyed it. As the name points out, the flavor is very nutty with just a hint of sweetness, and there are almonds in most every bite. At first, the flakes, which have a sweet coating, were a little thick for me, which was very different from most cereals with whole grain flakes that I regularly eat, and took some getting used to. This isn’t to say that the cereal was bad, just that it was different, and something that I quickly got over before I was through with my first bowl. This cereal only got better when I added some fresh fruit, strawberries and then blueberries, to it, and it kept me full well into the early afternoon without even the slightest craving for a snack between meals.
