Kellogg’s is tricky!

Another day another deconstruction of a food item. Notice my headline? They sure are tricksters.

So why am I writing this than? Well because nutri- grains contain more crap than a donut!

  1. This is why I eat “outside the box”…nothing from a box or anything that’s been manufactured by a company. Either way I stay away from all grains.

  2. It really is sad how they are allowed to advertise giving people false senses of healthy!

  3. I was in love with the special K bars until I read the box. Big lesson learned there!
    Nice post, thanks.
