Cereal That Won’t Leave You Hungry Mid-Morning

When you walk through the grocery store, it is easy to see that cereal is one of the most popular breakfast choices.  After all, how many other foods take up an entire isle of the store?  Cereal can be a great choice because it is quick and easy, it tastes great and it can be very healthy.  However, not all cereals are created equal and many of them can leave you hungry mid-morning.  Choosing a high-fiber cereal can add some real lasting value and along with other health benefits.

So, how much fiber should you have in your cereal?  Any cereal with at least 3 grams of fiber per serving is a very good source of fiber.  The following are a few examples of high fiber cereals:

  • Kellogg’s All-Bran
  • Post Grape-Nuts
  • Post 100% Bran
  • Bran Buds
  • Raisin Bran
  • Fiber-One
  • Corn Bran
  • Bran Chex
  • Kashi Cereals
  • Organic Nutlettes Soy Cereal

If the above cereals aren’t sweet enough for your taste, try adding fresh, frozen or dried fruit to your cereal.  Another option would be to mix half of your favorite cereal with half of one of the high-fiber choices.  Always remember to add fiber gradually and as you increase fiber, increase the amount of water you drink as well.
