It's hard to find healthy cereal, especially cereal that's low in sugar and high in fiber. That's why I like Uncle Sam Cereal so much.
Two more reasons why I like Uncle Sam Cereal: it's affordable and you can find it in regular grocery stores (opposed to health food stores).
Here's the ingredient list off the side of the box to give you an idea of how simple the cereal is: whole wheat kernels, whole flaxseed, salt, barley malt, niacin, riboflavin(vitamin B2), thiamin mononitrate (vitamin B1).
Uncle Sam has 190 calories per serving, 135 mg of sodium, 10 grams of fiber, less than 1 gram of sugar, and 7 grams of protein. It's high on carbohydrates, but they're the good kind (i.e., not refined).
And get this. Because of the flaxseed, Uncle Sam Cereal has 2,000 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids per serving! According to the Prescription for Nutritional Healing, Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce joint inflammation and the risk of cancer.
Depending on discounts, one box can be purchased for $1.99 to $2.99. Not bad for a "health cereal."
Next time you're at the grocery store, pick up a box of Uncle Sam Cereal and give it a try. I like it with unsweetened soy milk. But however you choose to eat it, I'm sure it will be far healthier than many of the current cereals you're eating.
