Kashi "Vive" Cereal

Kashi "Vive" Cereal

When I saw Kashi's new cereal, Vive, I had to try it. Instead of being a high protein cereal (like their Go Lean! and Go Lean Crunch), it's a high fiber cereal loaded with probiotics. Probiotics, which are usually found in "living" foods such as yogurt, help regulate your digestive system and flush out toxins. My digestive system is pretty healhty, but I figured eating a digestive-system-friendly cereal might help keep it that well. That, plus the fact that Vive has about lots of fiber and 20% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium was enough. The next morning, I ate a big handful of it dry. It was sweet and crunchy and tasted mildly of graham. There are flakes, twigs and little white round things which taste like the yogurt coating you sometimes get on raisins or pretzels. If you are use to eating healthy cereals, you will probably find this cereal excellent. If you are transitioning from, oh, Lucky Charms or Froot Loops, then you will probably find it pretty good.

I'm also minimizing the wheat gluten baby is eating. This cereal serves double duty for both me and baby. Besides eating it in a bowl with milk, they make a tasty finger food for baby. I just throw a few handfuls in a Ziploc bag and voila! Instant, no muss snack.
