A bowl of cereal in the morning is great way to start the day. Most people generally think of cereal as a tasty, healthy breakfast, but it has the potential to be so much more. Here are four surprising uses for cereal:
- Snack: Got the munchies? Keep cereal in your purse in case you or the kids need a healthy pick-me-up.
- Crunchy Coating For Chicken, Pork, or Fish: Crush your favorite cereal (bran-based or oat-based will work best); season with salt, pepper, and dried spices and herbs; dredge meat first in raw beaten egg and then in cereal mixture; bake in oven until done.
- Art Projects For Kids: Have your kids decorate poster-board or colored construction paper with glue and cereal pieces. Or use cereal pieces with holes in the middle as "beads" and string together fun necklaces.
- Dessert Topping: Use your favorite cereal as a healthy topping for ice cream, frozen yogurt, or pudding.
