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!

Hot New B1G1 Sunbelt Granola Bars Coupon

I believe my kids actually think Sunbelt granola bars are a food group, we seriously go through several boxes a week (I also admit to a daily breakfast habit), so I’m always thrilled when they put out a new coupon.  This one is actually the best I’ve ever seen because you get to pick whether you want B1G1 Sunbelt Granola Bars, Fruit & Grain Bars, or Fruit Jammers.  I always knew I loved Sunbelt, but now I dig them even more because they’ve also added the following statement to the PDF coupon page to help out couponers:

We understand that some store managers question the validity of PDF coupons. If your store has any questions about this coupon’s authenticity, please ask them to call the McKee Foods Consumer Affairs number at 800-522-4499.
