What's for Dinner? How About Cereal...

Well, it's not exactly what you think - Yes, cereal is involved, and milk, too, but what about ground turkey or a couple of chicken breasts? What, you've never had high fibre spicy chili bean burgers or crunchy coated chicken before? The familiar suddenly becomes uncharted territory when using cereal in dinner recipes. It's a totally different ballgame.

In today's fibre-challenged society, with everything we know about the benefits of fibre consumption, sneaking in fibre wherever possible can certainly seem like a struggle. Fibre often brings to mind images of dry, cardboard-like cookies, crackers or muffins, but it's really anything but.

That's why All Bran recently challenged Canadians to 'think outside of the box' and use their products in unique and creative ways! Some of the top picks included' Crunchy coated chicken breasts with ricotta and crispy kale filling', as well as 'All-Bran salmon cakes with cucumber sauce' (Wow - my mouth is watering! ). Anywhere you would normally use breadcrumbs, why not try using high-fibre cereals. Cereals like All Bran and Fibre 1 are completely delicious, and one serving gives you more than half of your daily fibre requirement, too! So next time you're cooking, try experimenting with 'cereal for dinner. As an added bonus, you might just bump up the fibre content of your meal by about 500%!
