This Week's Hidden Healthy Hit: Special K Protein Plus

So maybe it's not so hidden, but Special K Protein Plus is such a hit it deserves to have a little spotlight this week. I'm always on the hunt for a great crunchy food, and lately this has been my cereal de jour. But my love affair with Special K Protein Plus doesn't end at breakfast. Recently it has spilled into the late evening as a snack. It's crunchy, it's slightly sweet and so filling. Sometimes I eat it sans milk!

Special K Protein Plus NuVal Score: 60
