52 Mondays came to me in a fit of New years resolution fury. It seems I am always starting my "diet" or exercise plan on "Monday"! Well lots of "Mondays" have come and gone and my butt and thighs are still as thick as a Chick-filet shake (you know what I'm talking about!!) That is when I thought OK there are 52 Mondays in year...52 is a doable number of making small changing in my life that will hopefully change to number on the scale in a downward fashion. Come join us on the journey of 52 Mondays to getting our butt, thighs and almost everything else that shake and moves a little smaller. If want to be a contributor (and you know you do) just leave a comment and I will add you to the list of contributors! This is a blog were we can share our successes and failures on the hard journey of weight loss and just plain physical wellness.

Foodie Review: Kashi Go Lean Crunch

I've been wanting to try this cereal for some time now. I know they sell it at Costco, but I hate to buy a year's supply of something with out tasting it first. I have cut out most cold cereals at my house for breakfast, opting for other things. It has done wonders for my budget both for breakfast and for milk. I feel like the kids are eating something that is sustaining them better throughout the day. ANYWAY, I have been wanting to try this for Jed and I as a quick breakfast option.
Go Lean Crunch has 9g protein, 8g fiber and boosts 7 whole grains. A serving size is 1 cup and has 190 calories, weight watchers points=3. This morning I measured out 1 cup of cereal and doused it with milk. I have to say that this one time I was not upset by the 1 cup serving size. By the time I ate the one cup, I was ready to be done. It was like puffed wheat on steroids. Claire did like it, so depending on your view of puffed wheat.....
That being said, it filled me up and I was not hungry until this afternoon-bonus! Also, the fiber has all the great benefits of metamucil without eating metamucil-Yipee! So, I will be eating this again.
Overall rating: 2 1/2-3 stars


  1. I have to agree, this cereal is really filling! Good flavor too.

  2. Glad you found something that will work and is quick and easy...I haven't tried it, but all of the other Kashi products I don't care for. So I will stick with good old hot cereal, 2 mins in the microwave and it fills me up for the day (Along with the metamucil ;) Good luck to you all...we can do this, I know we can...I know we can...I know we can.
