Love This: Weetabix

My love affair with Weetabix started in the late 1970s. My dad was doing his PhD in Leceister, England and I remember many cold, damp mornings trying to get warm before being bundled off to nursery school. How did I love my Weetabix?

My mum would place an oval biscuit in a bowl and pour warm milk over it until it was fully submerged. I loved watching the biscuit soak up the milk and get nice and soggy. I know, not everyone’s idea of yum. We would then top it with sliced bananas, and I was ready to dig in. Those were my last moments of comfort each morning before being dragged teary-faced to the dreaded nursery school, where I was known as Miss Chatterbox. Not sure why…but I digress.

After all these years, I now take comfort in knowing that Weetabix is a whole grain cereal, low in sugar (only 1 gram in each biscuit) and a source of fibre (2 grams per biscuit). You also get a healthy dose of iron and thiamine, which helps your body unlock food energy. And can I add that I’m a big fan of Weetabix’s short ingredient list? (Note: the label shows info for 2 biscuits)

Crushed Weetabix biscuits are also a great substitute for whole wheat bread crumbs. I used them in my Mouthwatering Meatballs recipe, and also for breading fish or chicken strips before baking.

p.s. In case you’re wondering, I do not work for Weetabix (although I’d love to) and was not paid to write this post.
