I love having cereal for breakfast or snacks. Usually it's cherrios or oatmeal. I am ready to try something tastey, not sugary and more than 1/3 of a cup. Do you have any suggestions. What kind of cereal you like?

I live for Kashi Go Lean. I admit, at first I thought it tasted like cardboard - ! :eek: But now I really love it. It's very filling, and I usually slice a banana onto it, too - it's the only thing other than oatmeal that keeps me feeling full until after 1pm!!

Heather :D

poached eggs on toast :D

Its really not that bad calorie wise and the protien leaves you full for longer. Otherwise im an oats and muesli person.

I eat Special K cereal

1/2 cup Kashi Cinn-Raisin Crunch with 1/2 cup Special K plus protein with 1/4 cup of blueberries and 1/2 cup of light vanilla soymilk-200 calories and so good and filling.

cool - another person here that loves Kashi - go lean. I mix mine with yogurt (instead of milk) - adds more flavour, but not more calories. This way each day is a different flavour too - banana cream pie, raspberry, etc. Filling cereal too!

I don't eat a bunch of cereal because I'm more of a breakfast sandwich type of person, but when I do its Kashi Go Lean or oatmeal with raisins.

I love Total Cranberry Crunch! The serving size is a whopping 1 1/4 cups (yay) and it is so good...crunchy and the cranberries are zingy chewey...and it has Omega-3 fatty acids...because, really, who wants so start the day with fish?

01-09-2008, 08:12 PM
what is Kashi? a brand name?

01-09-2008, 08:14 PM
Oatmeal or Kashi Go Lean Crunch. That stuff is delicious. With some soy milk. mmmmm!

01-09-2008, 08:24 PM
I'm going on a whim, and I'll take Door Number 3... I'm not a morning cereal girl. It just doesn't do it for me. Too little protein and leaves me hungry the rest of the day no matter what I eat. So I spray two slices of double fiber bread :yes I am a regular girl ;) : with Olive Oil cooking spray, then pile on fat free turkey and a slice of fat free sharp cheddar cheese :think - yummo!:, put it together like a sandwich and toast it. I have a glass of skim milk and some fresh fruit. And of course I take my daily multivitamin and pine nut oil caps, and I'm good til lunch. :D I even tried oatmeal and I was still starving by 10am, but I eat this around 8:10 or so, and it lasts me til noon.

I LOVE Natures Path Flax Plus Granola (http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Path-Granola-Pumpkin-11-5-Ounce/dp/B000FBZQ1M). Have to be very careful with it though because well, it's granola...and it is just that good. It's like a dessert when I put some drinkable yogurt on it! My kiddos love it as well. It does have organic evaporated cane juice (sugar) in it though...so not what you're looking for.

I love Fiber One and Fiber One Honey Clusters. :) I know, gross. Fiber. But it's really delicious and with that fiber count, who can object.

I also love a bowl of fruity cheerios for dessert.

I love Frosted mini wheats. They are my all time favorite! It keeps me full for about 4 hours.

01-09-2008, 09:30 PM
I love mixing 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt with chopped up strawberries, 1/3 cup low fat granola and a teaspoon of honey drizzled on.
Not overly sweet - but this lasts me all morning!

01-09-2008, 10:43 PM
I usually mix 1 cup of Kashi Go Lean with either 1/2 cup Cinnamon Life or Rice Krispies and sometimes I will add 1/4 cup blueberries or 1/2 of a banana. I always use skim milk (need to limit soy).

I've heard that Kashi Vive is awesome but haven't been able to find it around here.

I love Frosted mini wheats. They are my all time favorite! It keeps me full for about 4 hours.

I second this! I've been eating it for breakfast the last two weeks. It's very filling and tastes good.

01-09-2008, 11:44 PM
I, too, am a lover of the Fiber One. I promise it is tasty!

Trader Joe's cereals...

High fiber cereal (like Fiber one but no artificial sweeteners)
Shredded wheat (like Post shredded wheat except cheaper)
Joe's high fiber O's (like cheerios but better)

I don't eat cereal in the morning but sometimes I'll use it as a snack in the evening. I also use unsweetened almond milk. It is 40 calories per cup and has protein and healthy fats.

I really like Kashi Go Lean Crunch, tasty and filling. If I want a higher fiber amount I mix All Bran with yogurt instead of milk. It gives the kind of bland cereal a bump in flavor.

01-10-2008, 11:38 AM
Thanks! I got some great ideas.

01-10-2008, 12:56 PM
I'm not a cereal for breakfast kind of gal, it just doesn't stick with me until lunch time. For breakfast I normally eat oatmeal, which I dearly love!

I will have cereal occassionally for a snack, and it's usually Frosted Mini Wheats without milk! I can pop those babies into my mouth and they're crunchy and satisfying. Love, love, love them! The strawberry or cinnamon ones are my faves, and when I get a box I typically portion them out immediately into the little snack sized ziploc bags, then put all those little bags back in the box. I can reach in and grab a snack on the run!

Special K Vanilla Almond and Kashi GoLean Crunch Honey Almond Flax


01-10-2008, 05:58 PM
Mini Wheats with raspberries or blueberries
Cream of Wheat, yum.
Cream of rice, another yum.
Special K Cinnamon Pecan
Good ol' corn flakes, plain with milk
I second the Cranberry Total, it's yummy, and also the Kashi is good.

01-10-2008, 07:53 PM
I'm a bit of a sweet fan for breakfast. I have the Frosted flakes with 1/2 sugar :)

01-10-2008, 08:17 PM
Special K Cinnamon Pecan

I love that stuff mmmm

01-10-2008, 08:51 PM
I just found out that I am allergic to All Bran. Which is really sad cause I really like how high in fiber it was. :(

01-11-2008, 04:25 AM
I like Uncle Sam with sf, ff, banana creme yogurt. Love those flax seeds.
Similar to Heather's experience with Kashi Go Lean, the first time I ate it, it tasted like cardboard.

01-11-2008, 04:46 AM
Another Kashi girl here! It's just SO delish with all that fiber and protein. You can't beat it!

01-11-2008, 09:36 AM
Ok I use Kashi Mountain Medley Granola, It's a bit more cals but very filling, there are 220 cals per half cup, but I use about a quarter cup. I mix it in one container of Dannon Lite&Fit yogurt. That has 60 cals. So when I mix them, I have 176 cals, 11g protein, and 7 g. fat (from the nuts).

I am filled and I also liked the variety of the yogurt.
