Healthy Eating Tip: Choose Cereals With Fiber

I think the easiest breakfast option in the world is a bowl of cereal. But just because it is an easy option, doesn't mean it has to be unhealthy. I like starting my day off with a cereal that is high in fiber; it helps keep me full and helps me reach the recommended 30 gram mark for daily intake of fiber. When shopping for cereal, go for ones made with whole grains that contain at least three grams of fiber per serving. Here are some great options:

  • Kashi Go Lean (10 g)
  • Kashi Go Lean Crunch (8 g)
  • Nature's Path Optimum Power (10 g)
  • Barbara's Shredded Oats (4 g)
  • Barbara's Puffins (6.7 g)
  • Barbara's Ultima (16 g)
  • Fiber One (28.8 g)
  • Bear Naked Peanut Butter Granola (3 g)
  • Bear Naked Apple Cinnamon Granola (3 g)
  • Bear Naked Fit Triple Berry Crunch Granola (3 g)
  • Kashi Mountain Medley Granola (3 g)
  • Kashi Orchard Spice Granola (3 g)

Fit Tip: Increase the fiber content of your cereal by adding nuts and fresh, frozen, or dried fruit.

I like Kashi Go Lean Crunch, but I've found that if I don't have lots of protein in the morning, I'll be hungry two hours later. Now I have eggbeaters and turkey sausage every morning.

Mmmm... Kashi Go Lean Crunch and half a sliced banana with light vanilla soy milk = my favorite breakfast (and sometimes lunch, if I'm working at home).

You guys forgot my favorite, All-Bran! The original kind has 10 grams of fiber and unlike Fiber One, no aspartame. I'm also a fan of Kashi Go Lean Crunch.

Fiber One is my cereal of choice each morning.

i think it's amazing that the regular fiber one has no sugar and still tastes delicious (to me, anyway).

Kashi GoLean Crunch is one of my favorites! It has great taste. I learned the hard way to be careful of portion size with high-fiber cereals. I had a big bowl of a FiberOne variety for lunch last weekend and suffered the rest of the day with horrible stomach pains.
