    Kashi Cereal


    Is there any reason that they put "about 8" servings per container? I'm sitting here with a couple boxes of their cereal, one being GoLean Crunch Protein & Fiber Cereal w/ Honey Almond Flax.

    I'd say that I have a good one serving left, after eating it for the past 2 breakfast meals. Oh well, at least it's healthy!

    They put "about" because the exact measurement is off from box to box due to the packaging process.

    Thats a lot of cereal for breakfast but if it works lol

    This cereal, without a doubt, is the single largest source of global warming bar none. The gas it causes me could fuel a third-world country.

    I love the honey almond crunch...

    but the sh1ts about $5 a box here and like was said, the box is small.

    I only get it if it's on sale.

    There's another company...Natures Path...they have good stuff too, but again, small boxes big prices. They have one called Optimum Zen that's yummy...another called something like Optimum Power thats good and another I think is called Optimum Rebound that's real good.

    It's actually not 'healthy' for you.

    99% of cereal is like candy. Eziekiel Cereal Original or with Almonds probably has the best profile I've seen.

    And thank god it doesn't taste like the original all bran. When I was a short sh1t back in middle school, I wanted to "eat healthy," and parents mixed all bran with some other cereals. Well my smart self wanted to go all in, and decided to pour myself a nice ole bowl of all bran.

    That didn't pan out too well.

    How about grape nuts? That is some delicious road gravel.

    Worst cereal in the history of the world.

    Naw thats grape nuts. I tried mixing that **** with water and it was horrendous. Agreed with Renegade worst cereal ever. (I actually like all bran with skim milk...) Best semi-healthy cereal is Raisin Bran imo but is high in sugar from the grapes (every once in a while though it won't harm anything.)

    I use a small Shredded wheat bowl of cereal with my protein for breakfast. It's pretty much the only cereal I would eat.

    Ezekial cereal is The Best because of its amino acid profile. There Products are flourless except for their hamburger buns. Their english muffins are awesome but the bread and cereals are bland in flavor. If that bothers you?

    If you look at the kashi cereal, you will notice that alot of the protein actually comes from soy seing as it's the second ingredient .
    " Ingredients: Kashi Seven Whole Grains and Sesame® cereal (whole: oats, long grain brown rice, rye, hard red winter wheat, triticale, buckwheat, barley, sesame seeds), textured soy protein concentrate, evaporated cane juice, brown rice syrup, chicory root fiber, whole grain oats, Kashi Seven Whole Grains & Sesame flour (whole: oats, long grain brown rice, rye, hard red winter wheat, triticale, buckwheat, barley, sesame seeds), expeller pressed canola oil, honey, salt, cinnamon, mixed tocopherols (natural vitamin E) for freshness.

    Allergen Statement: CONTAINS WHEAT AND SOY INGREDIENTS.

    That being said, I love the taste of the Kashi Go Lean crunch when I used to eat it. I avoided away from soy almost completely, although after reading a article compiled by the precision nutrition team I have started allowing a bit more soy into my diet, although infrequently at best.
