I love Grape Nuts. Mainly, because I can add a little to a lot of fruit (blueberries and bananas together, my favorite), add skim milk, and have a great breakfast.
Also, I use plain greek yogurt with blueberries and stir in some grapenuts like a Swiss Muesli. Add a tiny bit of honey if you need a treat. Stir and eat. Or, I freeze our peaches. I use greek yogurt with thawed peaches (chopped bite size) and some of the peach juice, and stir in some grapenuts.
It's been my favorite cereal for 35 years (51 now). I know it is not the lowest calorie, but it has no added sugar beyond the inherent fructose in the malted barley, it has great fiber, lots of nutrients and goes well with fruit. And, while fruit also adds sugar to our diet, we all need a little of it. Bananas for the potassium and blueberries for the anti-oxidents. And, grapenut has a deserved reputation for its fiber. If you're a little blocked up, it'll do the job!
I have it every other morning.

Time to lower the goal, I guess!
