Real Mums of All-Bran Challenge

This post is an entry for the Real Mums of All-Bran Linky Challenge, sponsored by Kelloggs
I must admit I am not one for eating breakfast, it’s not that I don’t have time as I could make time.  It is just that if I eat breakfast I tend to find I am hungrier late morning than if I don’t eat breakfast!  I don’t know whether it awakens my appetite by eating but that’s how it works for me.  However my digestive system is appalling so I jumped at the chance to try this challenge (eating All-Bran for 5 consecutive days).

I had three different cereals to try:

Chocolate Wheats 
I wasn’t keen on these and no something I would buy myself, the actual wheat tasted of cardboard and the chocolate chips were just too strong, I couldn’t finish the bowl and I am the world’s biggest chocoholic!!
Golden Crunch
These I loved, they were my favourite.   They maintained a nice crunchy texture (I hate soggy cereal!) and tasted lovely, quite a sweet tasting cereal.

Red Berry Crunch
These were also nice but just tasted the same as any other cereal with red berries in it.

Okay you got me, I didn’t eat the cereals for breakfast, I ate them for my afternoon or evening snack.  A lot healthier than a chocolate bar or packet of crisps!  I do eat healthily, we usually have veggies and meat for our dinner and I have fruit during the day, I am not overweight either.  However my digestive system has never been brilliant.  People are surprised when I tell them I poo once a week and I find that I do get a lot of cramps and bubbling sensations. 

After 5 days of eating a bowl of cereal a day I can honestly say all my cramps had gone and I was going to the loo daily!  That is an amazing turn around for me, it really is.  I will be buying these cereals to keep me in good digestive health!!

Real Mum of All-Bran
I am mum to my 1 year old little girl – Macy, she started walking at 11 months, now she is running everywhere so I have to be fit and healthy to keep up with her!  Therefore feeling well in myself is important to me as I want to enjoy being with her and going on adventures together.  I am so glad All-Bran helped me to feel better.
