I’m a child of the 80s, which means that my early years were filled with Full House and Reading Rainbow, playing with Cabbage Patch Kids and Gameboy and eating bowls of Lucky Charms.
Today, looking back at those boxfuls of pretty, colorful “marshmallows,” I realize that there is nothing “lucky” about a bowl filled with sugar, modified starch, modified corn starch, corn syrup, dextrose, gelatin, calcium carbonate, yellow 5 and 6, blue 1 and red 40 ... and that's only the marshmallows!
I may be older and wiser now, but I still enjoy that comforting feel of a sweet, multi-textured cereal. So how about a charming bowl of goodness that actually brings luck and happiness to those who taste it?
This healthy version of my all-time favorite childhood cereal is packed with protein, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It may not guarantee luck, but it will provide nourishing food for the brain and body and luck is sure to follow! Have a magically delicious day, everyone!
