Default I need a substitute for the Crispy Cereal!!!!

Hi all, I have read A LOT of posts on the alternative products sticky thread but still didn't find any with a substitute for IP's crispy cereal. I LOVE that stuff but I am unemployed as of 10/3 and can not afford $27 for a box of cereal. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, if your weighing in on the cereal....what is your favorite milk chocolate pudding substitute. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

If you are using the cereal to make a pancake, there is a good pancake alternative from Proti-thin or Proti-diet available from Nashua. If you are actually eating it as cereal, I don't know.

I tried this one and I loved it, much more than the IP one:

Protidiet Protein Soy Cereals - Honey Nut

Did not try to make a crepe out of it, but you can try I guess.

Default crispy cereal substitute...

I use Kashi Go Lean cereal... 13 grams of protein per serving. And instead of milk, I use half a carton of EAS Carb Control vanilla drink, which combined, ups my total protein grams for my breakfast. I'm watching my $$ also, and this is a good alternative.

Thanks! I will have to give it a try. Any idea how many carbs are in a serving of Kashi Go Lean?

Just curious, how big is a serving? 1/2 cup?

1 Cup of Kashi Go Lean high fiber/high protein cereal has 30g of carbs (it is in my PH3 breakfast plans), you would want to only use 1/2 Cup and would still need to count it as a restricted. I second the Honey Nut cereal, that is yummy and I only use that as an unrestricted. 1/2 Cup of Almond Milk (Unsweetened) adds only .5 carb and 0 sugar which is what I use for the milk.

Does anyone know if that Proti thin / Proti Diet pancake mentioned above would count as restricted? I have not seen the nutrition facts on that one but right now the IP Crispy Cereal is one of the only reasons I still visit my clinic! (for the pancake)

Curious... How many servings are in a $27 box of cereal?


Edit.. I found the answer, 7 servings The Protidiet cereal suggest above averages 10.95 for 7 servings.

here is the info on the Protidiet Pancake

With 6 carbs and 15g protein and 1g fat I don't think it is restricted, but I am not sure:

I would love to hear suggestions on the milk chocolate and strawberry pudding.

The IP strawberry has 1 carb and I have not found anything that comes close?? Proti-thin is 8 carbs.

Someone mentioned almond milk. Is that allowed? i was drinking that before I started IP and really miss it.
Also thanks for the cereal suggestions, I too was wondering how I could fulfill that need.

I get very confused with all the IP language. just want to make sure I understand. I am in week 3, what should I eat?

1/2 cup of Kashi or Protidiet Protein Soy Cereals - Honey Nut?
and can i already used unsweetened almond milk?

sorry, just clarifying, don't want to make a mistake this early, but getting bored with breakfast.
