Reviewing the Top Breakfast Cereal Options: Best Rice Flakes on Pakistan
Written By Store Hopper
I am a staff writer and have visited countless grocery stores numerous times; whatever I need, I know exactly where to get it from! I am a superhero - I identify value for money in any grocery list.
A Breakfast a Day Keeps Unproductivity Away
My morning starts with a glass of warm lemon water. Afterward, I do some meditation exercises and yoga. One of the most important habits out of all this productive routine is having breakfast every day. No skips!
Oh, another thing about me is that I am always short on time, and managing a start-up is hectic. I have long working hours, and with a healthy breakfast in the morning I can be assured that my day will go productive and I will not be drained out of energy mid-way, running from meetings to meetings.
So, how do I manage to stay fit, healthy, and always on the go when I have close to zero time to cook?
Breakfast cereal – My Shining Armor
Cereals are a delicious on-the-go treat and no, contrary to popular belief these are not unhealthy. My favorite is Rice Flakes. I sometimes even munch on rice flakes as a snack in day time since these are so crunchy and delicious. Hard to keep my hand from reaching for them every now and then.
I am such a big fan of rice flakes that I am guilty to have tried multiple brands available in Pakistan, offering rice flakes. I thought, why not share this information with my fellow breakfast lover?
I have also rated the following rice flakes brand based on price value for money, shelf life, availability, and packaging.

Fauji rice flakes are made using swiss technology and are low in calories. These are easy to make. Just pour some cold milk, no seasoning is needed.

My favorite is using coconut milk along with roasted mustard seeds in desi ghee. These are healthy and nutritious without being heavy on my pocket.
