Just Add Kellogg's All-Bran ~ #Review

I am not a gourmet chef or top notch cook.  Anything I make is self taught since I moved out at the age of 23.  I was spoiled by my mom since she cooked all the meals with very little help.  Over the years I learned to make a pretty good pasta dishes.

I have always thought to myself we don't eat enough fiber.  I have two boxes of Kellogg's All-Bran and my kids won't touch them.  I love putting All Bran Buds in my yogurt and sometimes mixing it with another cereal.

Just Add Kellogg's All-Bran ~ #Review


Kellogg's suggested incorporating their All Bran cereal into my favourite recipes.  At first I was thinking of making homemade burgers but that was too much work when I get home from a 9-5 job.  So I decided to make my Spaghetti.  It is fast and simple to make.    This time when I was mixing the sauce and ground beef together I put in roughly a 1/2 cup of All Bran Buds and watch it disappear in the mixture.

As I served it to my family, I asked how it taste.  They all said it was good.  Everyone finished their dinner even my oldest daughter.  Usually I have to persuade her to finish it.  It was a success!  So the next time I make my chili or another pot of spaghetti I will remember to add some All Bran Buds into the sauce.  Now I have an itch to make All Bran pancakes for dinner tomorrow.

One of the hottest food trends this fall is “comfort food moderne” — healthy, upscale comfort food — and Kellogg’s All-Bran is making it easy to indulge and get inspired. With decadent new recipes from top chefs across the country, each dish offers surprising, tasty and fibre-filled twists on comfort-food classics. All-Bran is challenging Canadians to try something new and think inside the box for an unexpected fibre fix this fall.

To inspire Canadians to unbox something delicious, Kellogg’s All-Bran has partnered with three top Canadian chefs to create on-trend, restaurant-worthy comfort food dishes that include a surprising and healthy kick of fibre. Chef Craig Harding from Campagnolo (Toronto), Chef Connie DeSousa from Charcut (Calgary) and Chef Alexandre Gosselin from Chez Victoire (Montreal) are putting flavour and flare first with fifteen new high fibre recipes that are sure to impress.
The powerful health benefits of fibre are well documented. In fact, studies show that meeting the recommended daily intake of fibre can promote regularity, contribute to healthy cholesterol levels and even help to maintain a healthy body weight.
