Heart Healthy Breakfast & $15 PayPal Cash Giveaway

Thanks to Three New Breakfast and Snack Items from General Mills at Publix– Cheerios™ +Ancient Grains, Gluten Free Chex™ Granola Mix, and Nature Valley® Nut Crisp Bars for sponsoring today’s discussion.

Heart Healthy Breakfast

This is National Heart Health Month and I wanted to share with you how easy it is to put together a delicious heart healthy breakfast. I have a full time job and five young kids to get ready and dropped off at their bus stop before I head into work in the morning so I have to grab breakfast in a hurry and Nature Valley makes that easy with these Nut Crisp Bars – my favorites are the Almond Dark Chocolate ones but I’m also wanting to try the Salted Caramel Peanut flavor. Pair a Nature Valley Nut Crisp Bar with a banana and yogurt for breakfast and I’m ready to meet the day head on!

Heart Healthy Breakfast

On other days I like to grab a bowl of Cheerios +Ancient Grains and I also enjoy throwing a handful of the cereal into my yogurt. The kids really enjoy having a bowl of Cheerios +Ancient Grains for an after school snack, or they’ll grab some Chex Granola Mix and either option makes me happy since they are both heart healthy snacks. Print some of the coupons below and you can get a great deal of heart healthy snacks for your family!

Giveaway: New 2 Box Cheerios Package!

We go through an amazing amount of cereal at our house each week!  I believe our five kids think that Cheerios are a food group and I don’t mind at all that their snack of choice is made from whole grain oats, contains fiber and comes with a side of calcium when they choose to eat it with milk.


Now Cheerios has this new 2 box packaging available at your local Costco, Sam’s Club or BJ’s. This is exciting to me for several reasons:

  • I can store one box in the stockpile and save room in the pantry
  • The smaller boxes are easier to pour than the larger boxes used previously
  • The new containers fit 10% more cereal than before and use less packaging
  • The reduced packaging has saved 1,000 trees!

One lucky reader is going to win TWO of these new 2 box packages of Cheerios (four boxes) – simply do any or all of the entry methods listed in the Rafflecopter widget below.  This giveaway will end at midnight CST on Tuesday, May 22nd.
