I am a huge cereal fan, but most of the brands that you see on grocery store shelves are full of sugar, and calories as well. Meet puffed kamut cereal! A few brands make kamut cereals, but he best in my opinion is Arrowhead Mills. Kamut has a slightly nutty, sweet taste to it that can satisfy your sugar craving without messing up your health. When paired with unsweetened almond milk, the flavor is even better. This cereal has become a staple to get me going in the morning. Puffed cereal comes in a variety of flavors, but kamut is my favorite! Arrowhead Mills makes puffed cereals of corn, millet, rice, and wheat. Now, this is probably all sounding good to you, but how does this cereal stack up nutritionally?
1 cup of this cereal is only 50 calories! Yes, that's right, only 50 calories. The corn puffs are a little higher at 60 calories, but that's okay because the kamut taste better anyway. Aside from the low calories, this cereal has a few other nutritional benefits, like 4g of protein and 2g of fiber, which will keep you nice and full. I prefer my cereal drier, so I just use 1/4 cup milk to every 1 cup cereal. 1/4 cup of my favorite almond milk is around 10 calories! So 60 calories for a huge bowl of cereal. What more could you ask for?! Did I mention that these cereals come in eco packs? You no longer have to reuse or recycle the boxes, and the lack of a box means the cereal is cheaper too.
