What Cereals (if any) do you ladies eat?

The two cereals I still keep are cherios (the non coated, less sugary kind), and rasin bran.   I don't eat them every day, for obvious reasons, but I still love them.  I'm curious about what sorts of things you clean eaters have for breakfasts, if you don't eat any cereal (unless there are organic cereals that they dont sell around here and I've never heard of. lol)

Sorry, I don't eat cereals.  They're VERY processed and leave me with a heavy feeling in my gut.

i make my own granola and will eat it like cereal..w either milk or soymilk. it's much more filling than store-bought cereal


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

The only thing I ever really notice is that cereal doesn't make me feel full.  Especially cereal with a lot of sugar in it.  More often than not I'm hungry again in an hour or less. Right now its just the only thing in the house besides eggs, and I've had eggs every morning for the last few days.

Cereal isn't meant to make you feel full.  It actually works to make you want more, but there's a pretty big scientific explanation for that.

I have eggs (fried, scrambled, poached, hard boiled), pancakes/waffles made with coconut flour (3x the amount of fiber as whole wheat flour) or almond flour, veggie hashes, eggs/meat/veggie casseroles (frittatas) for breakfasts and I don't get hungry for several hours.  I have to remind myself to eat lunch because I have no hunger pangs.  When I ate cereals (including steel cut oats or other "high fiber" cereals), I was STARVING within 3 hours.

I usually eat eggs for breakfast because it's fast and easy and I'm not awake enough to do much more at the hour I have to get up.  I have made a granola-type cereal with chopped nuts, raisins, and coconut flakes.  It's pretty high-calorie with the nuts, so I don't make it often.

it is really good and comes out to be way cheaper than buying cereal at the store. i've made enough granola that i now feel confident experimenting here and there w it. i try to write down what i do in case it's a winner. my most recent whoah i really like this 1 is as follows:

Old Fashioned Rolled Oats - Dry, 3 cups    
Sugar, 3 tsp    
Homemade Apple Butter, 6 tbsp         
Pure Vanilla Extract, 2 tsp
Pb2 - Powdered Peanut Butter, 3 tbsp

pinch of salt

Notice no oil. It works fine w/o esp since we almost always have it w milk. (if i was just going to eat it plain or make a trail mix i would use some oil). The peanut butter taste isn't necessary at all i just like PB...A LOT!

We're making another batch tonight. I plan to follow the recipe as states above, but I think i'm gonna run out of the apple butter so it will prob be 1/2 apple butter 1/2 pear butter.

DD spent the night w grandparents last night. She and I love making granola together. I like it bc I don't have to worry about her eating a batter w raw egg in it. If she wants a taste prior to baking, hey go for it ya know :)

We typically eat asparagus and spinach omeleys with a side of fruit, smoked (naturally smoked, not cured with nitrates) salmon and eggs with a side of fruit or just eggs, toast and fruit.
