SOURCE HomeArts' "Making It Healthy Breakfast" BY TAMARA HOLT

Notes: Work Time: 5 minutes, Total Time: 30 minutes. I have a friend who
eats the most sugary, artificially colored and flavored kids' cereal for
breakfast every day, and she claims it is healthy. "It's fat free and
vitamin enriched," she protests. I tell her she might as well have a glass
of milk, a lollipop, and a vitamin pill instead. Healthy? Well, yes, no,
and sort of. The milk, especially if it is low fat, is a great source of
protein. The lollipop, low fat or not, is just empty calories. And the
vitamin is just meant to supplement an already healthy diet. If you are a
cereal fan, beware of commercial products. More often than not, the first
or second ingredient is sugar. My homemade granola is a perfect
alternative. It is rich in fiber, protein, and the antioxidant vitamin E.
By making your own, you not only customize it to your taste, but create a
tasty treat that is far lower in cost than supermarket cereal. While you
may be surprised to find that this cereal has a few more calories and fat
grams then some store-bought brands, you'll find that it "sticks to your
ribs" better, so you'll be less hungry throughout the day.
