I am looking for a cereal with low or no sugar. It appears to me that even the "healthy" brands are loaded with sugar.

Does anyone know a cereal with little or no sugar?

@chai2,
Yeah, but you got to watch out for Cheerios. The Honey Nut variety looks like it has only slightly more calories than the regular, but the serving size is much smaller.

@roger,
Oh, when I say Cheerios, I only mean the original.

Just like Shredded Wheat. There's all kinds of gross varieties with frosting and stuff.

Wheatabix is like Shredded Wheat.

If you want a cereal type breakfast, I like making quinoa.

Following the basic cooking directions, you can subsitute milk or half milk/half water, and add in raisins, bananas, peanut butter, berries, nuts...really whatever you want.

Mine never comes out the same way twice.

Why does it always have to come down to an argument?

@edgarblythe,
Use whatever word you like. You were instructing or correcting or informing me about sugar free cereal. I was merely saying I didn't need the information, because I was just passing on information I had gotten elsewhere.

@snood,
I posted about two sugar free cereals before your post. Your post had the potential to make it look like they had sugar after all. It was my intent to be sure that did not happen.

Why not try some good old-fashioned oatmeal? And then some Lucky Charms for dessert! Laughing

Not wanting it to seem like an argument, but grape nuts does have sugar.

7 grams per half up. Look it up.

Just to mention the quinoa again for a moment. You can make up a big batch, it stays good for a few days. If you eat it you will be full for hours. It has a low glycemic index so you dont' have that spike.

An even better idea might be lentils. I love them any time. I like the red ones, they just have more eye appeal. They are extremely easy to make.
That's another food that you can make and eat over a few days.
You can mix yogurt with it, or some brown rice and you won't want any food until lunch. (I like curried lentils)

If I eat dried cereal, I do it as a snack at some time other than breakfast.

If I eat cereal for breakfast, I'm hungry in an hour, starving in 2.

I say stop buying processed foods in boxes and just cook up some legumes and have with wheat bread/toast. Complete protein.

@chai2,
The site for Grape-Nuts does not list sugar as an ingredient. Neither does the box.
