Oh, Breakfast Cart… oh, how we love thee! It’s been about 90 days since we first laid eyes on you… and, you’ve brought us so much joy, especially in the morning! Breakfast will never be the same without you. And those Honey Wheat Waffles yesterday? They were simply ah-mazing! We just can’t wait to tell the world about them!
Okay, now back to earth…
The thing is, we purchased a kitchen cart a few months ago… we figured it’d be great for entertaining friends and family over delicious food! Then, during the holidays, we decided to use the cart for our holiday waffle party. Since then, it has spent most of its life as a breakfast cart. And we lived happily ever after… because, having a breakfast cart stocked with delicious cereal flavors encourages–and reminds–us not to skip the most important meal of the day. The importance of breakfast simply can’t be overstated.
Our favorite Post Cereals brand varieties include:
- Shredded Wheat Original
- Honey Bunches Of Oats Honey Roasted
- Grape Nuts
Talk about “Spoonfuls Of Goodness” that make it easy to start your day (and your year)!
What’s your favorite cereal?
Whether you’re simply adding milk to your cereal or using it as a part of a delicious recipe, Post Cereal makes it easy to find a healthy and tasty breakfast. They contain fiber to prepare your body for the day, keeping you full until lunch. Then there’s also whole grains packed with nutrients (including protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants).
We like to add fresh fruit to our cereal (or recipes made with cereal). Bet we’re not the only ones! Our mornings are so much better when we prep / wash / slice the fruit ahead of time and store them in mason jars in the fridge. We store the cereal in mason jars, too, and leave them out on our breakfast cart. So, all we’d have to do in the morning is take out the prepared fruit + milk, and we’re ready to enjoy our first meal of the day!
We also have the larger mason jars for storing our favorite cereal varieties, specifically for making delicious recipes with them.
Our children just love Shredded Wheat Original cereal, especially when we use it to make Honey Wheat Waffles! Using Shredded Wheat Original cereal makes it so much easier to make these waffles, and they are fantastic! Plus, they are packed with 49 grams of whole grain and 6 grams of fiber, for a classically wholesome breakfast! Yup, it’s that good–and it’s recommended by 9 out of 10 doctors to reduce heart diseases.

The most difficult part is choosing the toppings! Our favorites include fresh fruit, honey or agave nectar, and Honey Bunches Of Oats Honey Roasted and Grape Nuts. Yum!
Did you know that Honey Bunches Of Oats Honey Roasted contains four different types of grains in its 10 grams per serving? There’s rice, wheat, oats, and corn. It’s also deliciously heart healthy, with 0 grams of trans fat, saturated fat, and 0 milligrams of cholesterol per serving. We just love the combination of flavor and texture that they add to our mornings!
Another topping favorite is Grape Nuts! It’s got 7 grams of fiber, and it contains 52 grams of whole grain. It comes as no surprise–this tasty morning staple has been around for over a hundred years!
